Selected flours and grains
The bread is made using carefully selected flours. Gontran Cherrier meets the producers he works with to ensure that products are high-quality. For the French stores, the flours come from the region between Paris and Orléans, and they are Red Label and CRC (sustainable farming) - indicators of quality. In overseas stores, flours are local, chosen on site.
Traditional and artisan processes
Each stage of the bread production process is carefully controlled, in the French tradition. A long fermentation periodis used to retain flavour. As needed, and depending on inspiration and taste, the flours change and adapt - pure wheat flour, rye, with gluten or gluten-free - and the raising agents are chosen depending on the desired acidity.
