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. This Levain is their most traditional and best known bread. The name comes from the natural leavening agent of the same name. 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.
