The naturally-produced fermentation power of this wheat leaven is the base for
This is available as a 600g boule; it is made with natural leaven only, and contains a mix of 75% organic white, and 25% wholemeal flours. It is an established favourite, containing a winning combination of sunflower, sesame and pumpkin seeds which have all been roasted in tamari soy sauce. The use of a soaker of golden linseeds helps to ensure the loaf has reasonable shelf life, keeping the crumb reasonably open, and moist.
The Bread and Roses version of this loaf follows its more famous French cousin in many ways. It is raised using only a natural leaven. It uses a high extraction flour, milled specially from locally-produced organic wheat. Their flour is supplied by Gilchesters’ Organics; the single-strain wheat is grown and milled on the farm, near Stamfordham in Northumberland. The soft dough contains nothing else apart from flour, salt and water. Each dough piece is proved in a linen-lined basket, known as a “banneton”, before being baked directly on the sole of the oven.
As well as the classic 1200g loaf, we currently offer a 600g version as well.
FIVE GRAIN LEVAIN
A healthy and tasty loaf available at 600g weight, usually sold as an oblong loaf with significant grigne from the single slash along the length of the loaf. A mixture of sunflower seeds, golden linseeds, pinhead oatmeal and rye flakes with a little salt, is steeped with boiling water and left to soak overnight before being mixed with all the other dough ingredients. It uses only natural leaven, and is a slightly lighter loaf in texture than the seeded cousin.
