The smell of freshly baked bread is simply irresistible. As the rain sweeps in, you might find yourself hankering after some home-baked bread. Bread is one of the most important staple foods, and bread-baking traditions go back thousands of years. Take up these time-honoured traditions in your very kitchen: baking bread requires little effort if you use your Monsieur Cuisine, and you won’t have to bother with strenuous kneading, either. One of the major advantages of making your own bread is that you can vary the recipe to suit your own preferences and dietary requirements, for instance by leaving out potential allergens. What’s more, homemade bread surpasses any mass-produced offerings in the supermarket in terms of taste. A light Potato bread made of fresh floury potatoes and spelt flour with a crispy crust is a true delight. For those who are gluten-intolerant, we recommend our tasty Lentil bread, which is made without grain. For a low-carbohydrate alternative, opt for our energy-packed Protein bread, made with ground almonds, linseed and chia seeds. Monkey bread is very popular as a tear-and-share bread, and is always made of yeast dough. It is sweet like cake and is perfect for pulling apart. Fluffy Lye rolls are bound to steal the show in any breakfast spread. Dipped briefly in a lye solution, they are baked until golden brown and go beautifully with cheese or sausage on top, or simply spread with a little butter. Bon appétit!
