HOW TO STORE YOUR BREAD
Bread is best the day or the day after it is baked, but our breads will keep about 3-5 days. A whole loaf of bread will keep better than a cut one. Store bread in a paper bag if you plan to finish it within a few days. To keep bread for more than a few days, freeze whole or in slices in an airtight bag, thaw overnight, then crisp to serve.
A few hours after baking, the crust of a bread looses it's crispness and becomes chewy. Reheating the bread before eating restores the fresh-baked crispness of the crust. I always heat my bread a few minutes before eating, even if I've just baked it a few hours ago.
TO SERVE WITH DINNER
Heat in a 450F oven for 10 minutes until crispy, let rest a few minutes, then cut slices of the warm bread. To easily slice a whole boule (round loaf), cut the boule in half and place the cut end on the board, then cut slices from one end.
FOR BREAKFAST TOAST
Cut slices of unheated bread and place directly on the oven rack at 450F for a few minutes each side.
Our breakfast bread is an extremely high hydration bread which keeps for a long time. Store in a paper bag for up to 5 days. We recommend cutting very thin slices and toasting for maximum flavor punch. This bread also freezes very well. Slice first, then freeze in an airtight bag. Slices can be toasted directly from frozen following the directions for breakfast toast above.
