Have you ever wondered why artisanal bread can cost more than its commercial counterparts? It’s a valid question, and one that we at Miche Artisan Bakery get asked quite often. The truth is, there are several reasons why artisanal bread is worth the extra cost.
First and foremost, artisanal bread is made with higher quality ingredients. We use organic flour, natural leavening, and no additives or preservatives. These ingredients not only result in a healthier and more flavorful bread, but they also require more care and attention during the baking process.
Speaking of the baking process, artisanal bread is typically made by hand and in small batches. This means that each loaf is carefully crafted and given individual attention, resulting in a unique and delicious product. Commercial bread, on the other hand, is often made in large factories with industrial equipment, resulting in a uniform and mass-produced product.
Additionally, artisanal bread is often made with traditional techniques that have been passed down for generations. This not only adds to the artisanal nature of the bread, but it also ensures that the bread is made with care and attention to detail.
Finally, buying artisanal bread supports small, local businesses like ours. We take great pride in our craft, and we’re passionate about providing our customers with the best possible bread. By purchasing our bread, you’re supporting our local economy and helping to keep traditional baking techniques alive.In conclusion, artisanal bread may cost a bit more than commercial bread, but it’s worth the extra cost. With higher quality ingredients, individual attention, traditional techniques, and support for small businesses, artisanal bread offers a unique and delicious experience that simply can’t be matched by mass-produced bread.
