Brasserie Bread - New York Rye
We are pleased to announce a new
sour dough from Brasserie Bread, the New York Rye.
Made famous by New York 's Jewish community, the New York Rye is a particular version of rye bread that is distinguished by a high proportion of wheat flour in the dough, giving the bread a light crumb and milder flavour.
The secret to the typically dark brown crumb colour is dark molasses and bitter dark cacao powder. A delicious crust is the result of the long fermentation process at ambient temperatures combined with a very high baking temperature.

Their very first batch of sourdough bread was baked back in 1996 when the owners, Tony Papas and Michael Klausen decided to make great bread for Sydney and never compromise the quality. They baked 12 loaves a day then and the plan was to build a bakery that would sell thousands of sourdough loaves a day at the same quality. And they did! Brasserie sourdough is organic and naturally delicious!
Today Brasserie bread is still dedicated to baking great bread for school lunchboxes and dinner tables. Eaten simply with good butter, it's a taste that lingers long after the last bite has been swallowed.
