pain de montagne

pain de montagne
Our Pain de Montagne (pronounced [pahn de mon-tahn-ya]) is an intense, rustic loaf inspired by the traditional, naturally leavened, artisan wheat bread of the hard-to-reach mountain regions of France and Switzerland.

Vying with Farm bread for top spot on Frank's list of favorite breads is the Pain de Montagne. We offer it in two sizes: a .75 kilo loaf (about 1.65 lbs) that's good for slicing and munching, and a 2 kilo (about 4.4 lbs) work of art.

We love the 2K loaf! A good foot-and-a half across and four or five inches high, each loaf is decorated with a hand-cut Z. It has a chestnut-colored crust that's nearly a quarter-inch thick. The size is significant because bigger loaves almost always taste better. Baked to last, our 2K Montagne bread will still be delicious ten days after leaving our oven. This bread is totally terrific for toasting and spreading with a light smear of butter.

Attention French food fanatics:
Pain de Montagne is the closest thing we've ever tasted to the much-loved loaves of Paris' beloved baker, Lionel Poilane.
