Tony Papas and Michael Klausen’ Brasserie Bread bakery café supplies premium products to the leading food industry professionals in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, and has emerged as Australia’s leading artisan bakery.
Brasserie Bread make real sourdough bread, starting with the preparation of their starter culture. The starter is now 20 years old and gives their sourdough bread its complex flavor and crumb structure. Brasserie Bread contracted Technosilos to design and supply their automatic sourdough tank system.
Baking fresh artisan sourdough bread is very time consuming and uses a natural fermentation process similar to that of making wine and cheese. Brasserie Bread’s sourdough is leavened slowly with a natural Starter, with each loaf taking a total of 3 days to produce. Baker’s yeast is never used in their sourdough breads.
