Pain Poilane

September 29, 2007 - 3:25pm -- fleur-de-liz

Bristol Farms, an upscale food store near me, sells bread by Poilane flown in from Paris.   I bought the Poilane sourdough and rye currant.  Both are excellent. The sourdough had more of a tang than I expected.  The crust is somewhat soft and not very crisp, presumably from being packaged in plastic and being as least a day old.  It's difficult to characterize the taste, but it seemed to have an earthy taste, almost like of minerals. I assume that the flour helps to impart that flavor.
