£3.20 ea Five Grain Levain (600g)

A HEALTHY AND TASTY LOAF PACKED FULL OF SEEDS AND GRAINS. This loaf is leavened with a wheat levain for plenty of flavour. A hot soaker of golden linseeds, toasted sunflower seeds, rye chops and pinhead oatmeal is also used, in order to encourage high hydration in the dough. The final dough has a significant portion of wholewheat flour added along with white bread flour.

A healthy and tasty loaf available at 600g weight, usually sold as an oblong 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.

TASTING NOTES - Lighter than other seeded loaves and packed full of flavour.

ENJOY WITH - Sits well alongside the Seeded Sourdough. Try with sweet cured meats and a dry white wine, or toasted with paté.

ORIGIN - This bread takes its inspiration from renowned United States’ baker Jeffrey Hamelman; a certified master baker and inspiration behind the US emergence as serious challengers in the late 1990s at the Coupe du Monde du Boulangerie in Paris.
