PHILLIPPA'S BREAD

We are famous for making great bread. Good bread is made with SIMPLE, NATURAL INGREDIENTS. What separates good bread from great bread is TIME. Time to develop COMPLEX FLAVOUR and DISTINCTIVE TEXTURE. Baked fresh every day, TASTE the time in every loaf.

SOURDOUGH BREADS 

 Real, naturally fermented sourdough is rare because it takes TIME and SKILL to make. It can take 24-36 hours to make some of our great breads.

BREAD NUTRITION

Our customers say they find our bread easy to digest. Good digestion is important – that’s why we use minimal yeast, real ingredients and naturally proof our breads. 

 The slow fermentation during a traditional bread making process breaks wheat down into more digestible components. People with wheat intolerances may find it easier to consume. 

 We don’t add ingredients to speed up the process, such as ascorbic acid (Vitamin C), malt or extra gluten. Great bread is as much about what you put in as what you leave out!

Leading Dietician and Health Coach, Sharon Curtain, said

“Bread is part of the carbohydrate group, with fruit and vegetables, legumes and other grains. It’s an important food group as it’s where we get prebiotic, soluble and insoluble fibre, essential for our gut health.  

Healthy eating isn’t about cutting things out, or restrictions or labelling things as good or bad. It’s about choosing the best quality and funnily enough it’s about going back to basics, choosing wholefoods or foods as natural as possible, made using simple ingredients.”

Recipes

Real traditionally made bread is too good to waste. It can be used for French Toast, Cinnamon Toast, Toast with Eggs or Smashed Avocado, breadcrumbs, cakes, Bread & Butter Puddings, Romesco Sauce or a crunchy topping to pasta or vegetables for added texture.

STORAGE

Bread is best stored in paper, calico or perforated cellophane in a cool, dry place. When bread is enclosed and not able to breath, the crust becomes damp and mould can develop. You can keep our bread in our environmentally friendly bags for days. Or store it in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer then enjoy it toasted.  

Enjoy the unique character of every loaf.
