Bread. For thousands of years, it has reigned supreme as the “staff of life.” Break it with someone, and your friendship is sealed. When selling your house, the aroma defines what “home” means. When it’s warm out of the oven, the experience begins before you even taste it!
Our master bakers christen the dawn of each day by baking our breads right on the hearth (the shelves) of our big ovens. Their ingredients are basic – flour, water, yeast and salt – but the magic is in the technique. They know that, in order to achieve dough with heart-melting flavor, the fermentation process cannot be rushed, nor can the old-fashioned European methods be changed. They scrutinize the dough’s color, aroma and texture, just like wine connoisseurs do. Crust, consistency and the salty/sweet balance – these are an infinite source of discussion among LaSalle’s bread artisans.
And when the golden loaves come out, it’s clear the ingredients, the process and the love have paid off! Whether you prefer an old-world crust – hearty and crunchy – or bread’s softer side, there’s a loaf of goodness waiting for you at LaSalle.
