farm bread - a taste of the french countryside

March 2014...All this month every loaf of our signature farm bread, as well as our country wheat bread, will be made with Michigan grown and milled wheat and whole wheat flours! It took more than three years of persistence to get our own Michigan wheat grown, cleaned and milled and we estimate that it's only enough for these two breads for just one month. Enjoy!

Imagine sitting around a French farmhouse table waiting for dinner to be served--this would be the bread they'd bring out. A foot and a half across the top of its crisscrossed dome, looking a bit like a rough cut diamond, it has thick crust and soft white chewy interior with a flavor that tastes of toasted wheat. The 3 pound loaves are our favorite--cut in quarters and freeze what you don't need right away--though to tell you the truth, some have been known to eat half a loaf in an afternoon. Baked to a nice dark crust, this is Frank's favorite loaf. Amy loves the Farm Baguettes for appetizers.

westwind bread

Simply a darn good loaf of naturally leavened bread and a bread with local flavor, too. The recipe was developed at the Bakehouse using flour milled from Michigan wheat by our friends at Westwind Milling Company in Linden. Their old fashioned mill leaves more wheat bran and germ in the flour for great flavor and texture.

Baked late afternoon on Mondays and Fridays.

jewish rye bread

This is the bread that's been the base of over a hundred thousand sandwiches at Zingerman's Deli since our opening in 1992.

Traditional Jewish rye bread is an endangered species these days; In traveling and telephoning across the country trying to track down what's left, we've found that our Zingerman's Bakehouse Rye is just about the only one. It is rye like Amy's grandparents ate on the lower East side in New York city: plenty of rye flour (believe it or not, most "rye bread" sold in America has hardly any rye flour), a natural sour starter (not the usual canned shortcut), and lots of time. It takes more than 5 hours to let the dough develop. A perfect pairing with hot corned beef or any kind of sandwiches.

In the April 2011 "Sandwich Issue" of Saveur magazine, Jane and Michael Stern—"two aficionados of traditional Jewish rye"—embark on a quest to "track down the country's tastiest loaves." "America's very best rye?" they write, "No contest. We found it in Ann Arbor, Michigan...It comes from Zingerman's Bakehouse, which makes loaves of rugged rye that are dense and springy, laced with the taste of hearth smoke."

sicilian sesame semolina bread

The bread to seize the imagination of sesame seed lovers everywhere - the entire loaf is rolled in unhulled sesame seeds. Golden color, great taste. Made with semolina and durum flour. We've found it's best when toasted, grilled, or heated in the oven.

pecan raisin bread

Over half a pound of pecans and raisins in this flavorful loaf.

This isn't your average puffy, sweet raisin bread. Instead, it's dense, intense, and delicious. In fact it's the density of pecans and raisins in this crusty chewy loaf that has made it one of our most popular breads over the years. Each loaf is baked on a stone hearth to ensure that the crust develops perfectly. This bread's popularity has been like a chain reaction--someone serves it for brunch and the next week their guests are buying it for themselves.
