Sourdough Bartard

A time-honoured recipe that will make anyone fall in love with the distinct flavours of sourdough.

Delicious par-baked Sourdough Batard for foodservice.

To find a truly authentic sourdough bug, we went all the way to San Francisco - the capital of the ‘sourdough renaissance’ - to source a strain from a family-run bakery dating back to the 1800s. Our now beloved starter just celebrated its 80th birthday and is fed daily by our loyal team!

Each loaf is crafted using our starter, which has been slow-fermented for 72 hours, before we stone-bake our Sourdough Batard to perfection, with a thick golden crust and pillowy centre. All that’s left is for you to quickly complete the baking process, prepare and serve!

Serving suggestion
Perfect as a cheese toasty or base to your poached eggs. Great as an open steak sandwich or with your favourite deli meats.
