The secret to a good loaf is time and a little bit of patience. Our talented bakers use long-fermenting traditional methods, they knead each loaf by hand and allow time for them to proof slowly. Our ingredients for our sourdough loaves that means just flour, water, salt, and our own sourdough starter. The range of breads at Vera Artisan Bakery are constantly evolving and expanding. Our talented and passionate bakers feed the starters every day and nest the final dough in baskets to proof overnight.
Sourdough is natural and nutritional. The long fermentation using naturally occurring yeasts and lactic acid bacteria found in our starters produces lactic acid. Lactic acids make gluten more digestible and provide the mildly sour taste and chewy texture in our sourdoughs which we have all grown to love.
