Spelt sourdough bread Made by The Authentic Bread Company at Newent, Gloucestershire

£4.55 / 800g


This 100% spelt variation on our classic sourdough bread has a rich, nutty flavour, staying wonderfully light thanks to a mix of wholemeal and white flours. Each handmade loaf takes over 24 hours to prepare and bake, but it’s worth it to get them just how we like them: crumpet-like in texture, complexly flavoured, and finished off with a deeply coloured, pleasingly chewy crust.

The sourdough bread is so tasty that it is opened as soon as I get through the door with a big slather of butter, yum!

How to prepare

While the bread tastes great on delivery to your door, to make it even better place in a warm oven for 5-10 mins before eating. It will restore crunch to the crust – as if fresh from the baker’s oven.

It makes superlative toast, bruschetta and croutons, and should you have any leftover it makes the ultimate breadcrumbs, too. We’d recommend it buttered and slathered in marmalade for breakfast, layered with smashed avocado and herbs for lunch, or used to mop up a hearty stew for dinner.
