OUR RANGE ENCOMPASSES THOUGHTFULLY BALANCED SOURDOUGHS, TRADITIONAL FRENCH BAGUETTES, ITALIAN CIABATTAS OR DARKER GERMAN RYE AMONGST OTHERS.
All of our sourdough breads are made without the use of bakers yeast. No compromise here. We “cultivate” and nurture 3 different sourdough “mothers”, one wheat, one rye and one spelt.
At Banneton, we use bio dynamic flours. This means that the soil balance is carefully tended to by the farmer in order to get the right amount of minerals in the grain. This ensures the healthiest level of minerals in our products. We also carefully balance our sourdough “mother” between acetic and lactic flavours.
Only our French Baguettes and flat bread range (ciabatta, focaccia, turkish) are made using a very small amount of bakers yeast. The process is very similar to a sourdough process (long fermentation), but allows for a lighter, more open crumb and generally a thinner crust.
- Banneton sourdough and vienna sourdough (100% wheat flour).
- Multigrain (12 seeds and grains, almonds with more than 50% whole wheat flour).
- NY Deli Rye (30% rye flour added to wheat. We fold Caramelised onions through the dough).
