Melbourne bakery est 1994. Passionate about traditional, natural breads & provisions using local & organic ingredients. Author of Phillippas Home Baking
We look very carefully at the quality of our ingredients and, as much as possible, use ingredients in their most natural state. We choose ingredients that are unadulterated, unprocessed and are without unnecessary additives.
Breads and Modern Ingredients…
Valuing more complex flavours and character is the reason we make our breads the traditional way. We only use flour, water, salt and yeast or a sour dough starter. We do not use any ‘improving’ ingredients, such as sugar, malt flour or vitamin C to speed up the proving process. We are much more interested in slowing this process down. To this end, we use only a small amount of yeast in our yeasted breads and give our doughs a longer time to ripen which contributes significantly to the flavour, texture and distinctive character of our bread.
We are driven primarily by clean flavours and use fresh, local, seasonal ingredients, as well as traditional methods of production. We make our pastries and cakes with unsalted butter, real eggs, pure cream and zest unwaxed lemons for our tarts, candy our own peel and use Belgian chocolate. We have created a range of preserves, slices, biscuits and other pantry essentials. These are stocked at all of our stores and are available at many good food stores through Australia.
