This year we will again be offering a weekly share of Gerard’s Bread!
Gerard Rubaud is Julie’s father and bakes wonderful bread in his wood-fired oven.
He uses a fermentation method that relies on wild (as opposed to commercial) yeast for leavening. The method, traditional in France, involves culturing grains, flour and water to produces a natural starter called levain. He grinds many of his ingredients from whole grains, including rye, spelt and wheat. About a quarter of his dough is comprised of these freshly ground grains, the remainder is white flour. It is simply delicious!
How the Bread Share works:
- Prepay for 12 weeks, from April 19th to July 19th
- Pickups are on Saturday the bread is usually here at Red Wagon by noon.
- It costs $84.00 for the share, ($6 per loaf).
