Pain Poilâne Levain

Country of Origin: France
Region: Île de France
City / Village: Paris

For people who know and love bread, the name Poilane is associated with the pinnacle of traditional levain-style bread. We started working with Lionel Poilane in the mid 1990s by flying his bread in each week to support a small, but growing group of customers who had developed a taste for his bread on their trips abroad.

The sign "Ici Pain Poilane" went up in our window and since then we have had a steady demand for this amazing bread. The traditional Levain is their most traditional and best known bread. The name comes from the leavening agent which is called a levain. This is a natural yeast that slowly leavens the bread and produces a loaf that is beautifully fragrant, dense yet porous and keeps very well (for a week if refrigerated). In addition to this loaf, we bring in their currant loaf and their walnut loaf.

Please note a full loaf is approximately four pounds. A one-pound piece is approximately a quarter-loaf.

We receive our shipments of this bread weekly on Wednesday. This means that orders received prior to Wednesday at 12:00 noon EST will be shipped overnight for Friday delivery and orders received after that time will be shipped on the following Wednesday. If you have specific shipping requirements, please give us a call at 1-888-212-3224.
