Are You Getting the Most out of Poilâne Breads?
What’s the best way to keep our breads?
In a dry place in their original packaging. Our bags are designed to strike the balance between too much and not enough air. You can also wrap our breads in a cloth, preferably linen. A bread box, designed by Lionel Poilâne, to keep, cut and display our breads can be found online and in our shops.
How long does our bread keep for?
Can you freeze Poilâne breads ?
Yes. Place the breads in freezer-proof bags. You can freeze halves and quarters of our sourdough loaves. The larger the piece, the better. Try to remove as much air as possible from the bag. Freeze for up to 3 months. Defrost at room temperature.
How to use Poilâne breads ?
I am allergic . Are there allergenes in Poilâne bakery goods ?
There is gluten and there is a possibility that traces of walnuts can be found in all Poilâne bakery goods.
Walnut bread contains gluten and walnut pieces.
When should you cut the bread ?
As you need it. Sliced bread will dry faster.
What kind of knife should you use to cut the bread?
A serrated knife with rounded teeth to get a better grip on the bread’s crust.
What is the correct thickness of the slices?
It’s really up to you but a finger’s width (1cm) is a happy medium for most loaves. For walnut and currant raisin breads, half a finger's width (5mm) is best.
How should you toast a Poilâne loaf?
Use bread that is a few days old as fresh or warm bread is difficult to toast. Toast the bread – only on one side – at the very last moment to ensure that crumb stays soft. Once toasted, you can keep the slices warm by putting them in a cotton or linen cloth.
How do you toast the bread equally in a traditional toaster?
Insert two slices back to back in the toaster.
