Our sourdough bread is made by the Southsea based artisan baker Bread Addiction and is delicious, glorious and as bread should be – made with organic flour, water, sea salt and natural levain (the sourdough starter). It takes two days to form before being baked and the end result is a magnificent crust, with a bouncy, well textured crumb that is fully flavoured, complex and satisfying.
This is the sort of bread that can be appreciated on it’s own, toasted with butter for breakfast, or dipped in olive oil and sea salt for lunch. It is not just a vehicle for jams and fillings, but is an equal to anything else you put on it, including the finest smoked salmon or pate. It also keeps well – perfect for toasting several days later.
It’s also far healthier than your average Chorleywood loaf that you find in supermarkets. Sourdough is more digestible with the lactic acids slowing down the rate in which glucose is released, avoiding insulin spikes. The gluten becomes more digestible and less prone to causing intolerance.
Bread Addiction’s small sourdough loaves are 500g with the white and brown costing £1.99, the baguette is £1.65 and the Seeded and Pumpkin Seed cost £2.65
The large are 800g at £3.75.
There are also stickly Cinammon rolls which are unbelievably good.
