Bond Bond’s Artisan Breads are a labour of love using European-inspired traditions. Although the ingredients couldn’t be simpler (flour, water, yeast and salt), the process of creating superior bread is long and fairly complex. A day at the Bakery begins as early as 3 am. Several bread recipes call for a sourdough starter, a fermented mixture of water and unbleached white wheat flour that flavours the bread and provides a natural preservative. The bakers must keep this mixture alive by “feeding” it daily. Some of our other breads use different starters such as a sponge, biga, poolish or fresh yeast. When the dough is mixed, the bakers divide the dough into batches and set it aside for several hours for the process called “fermentation.”

The bakers then divide the dough, shape it into loaves and again set it aside for several hours to proof or place it in the retarder for extended overnight fermentation. When ready, breads are baked in a high heat oven, which causes the gas bubbles in the dough to expand, creates a perfect crust and an even golden colour. The process of preparing a loaf of bread for baking can take in excess of 12-18 hours, but the results make it worthwhile – aroma, crust, flavourful taste and texture. You can be sure that Bond Bond’s Bakery breads contain only the finest, simplest ingredients, natural starters and absolutely no preservatives.

• Bond Bond’s Bakery ingredients are chosen for specific characteristics required to produce the finest quality breads. The building block and main ingredient of our bread is unbleached wheat flour. Unbleached wheat flour is what gives bread a “crumb” colour that looks more natural and more wholesome. Using bleached flour is common in many other bakeries and gives many breads their super-white appearance. The addition of bleaching agents removes the natural yellow colour (carotenoids) from the flour and changes the nutritional value of the resulting flour.

• Bond Bond’s Bakery uses fresh yeast and, because of the slow fermentation process, the amount of yeast used is considerably less than other commercially prepared breads.
