NEW BOOK BY APOLLONIA POILÂNE “When one summer in Brittany, I keep a loaf of fresh wheat sourdough bread for more than a week, I decide that it is time to tell with my words, my experiences, the sourdough that we have been feeding at Poilâne since 1932. ”- Apollonia Poilâne.
“ " Poilâne, des grains aux pains " is a book which tells about the baking tradition started by my grandfather, Pierre, in 1932. How my father, Lionel Poilâne, developed with my mother our neighborhood bakery into a family business in International fame. And how I took over in 2002, following his sudden death.
This book is a declaration of love for my profession , or how our breads, cookies and bakery pastries are not only foods but can become ingredients!
Finally, I share a look at my profession which has been nourished and shaped by two generations of unique men and 18 years of meetings and exchanges in the service of grains to bread. ”
