Made by the most iconic bakery of Paris, Poilane is dedicated to make the perfect bread:
"We are passionate about bread. We are constantly looking for the best ingredients and the best production techniques. Lionel Poilâne called this search and combination of the best of old techniques with the best of new techniques, “Retro-Innovation.”
Bread is made of four ingredients: water, flour, salt, a rising agent.
We source our sea salt from Guérande. Our flour is exclusively stone-ground. We work closely with our flour makers to use the very best varieties of wheat. And, we use a piece of dough from the previous batch of bread – the sourdough – as a starter for the next batch.
The type of oven used to bake bread is also important. We bake our breads in wood-fired ovens. These ovens are fed with waste wood that cannot be used for any other industry.
Poilâne has a small range of breads to ensure their quality."
