WHY WE USE SEVEN DIFFERENT VARIETIES OF BREAD IN OUR ARTISAN SANDWICHES
Did you know that we bake our own bread every day by hand, the proper old-fashioned French way? There are no shortcuts. It takes seven hours to bake every loaf of PAUL bread. We allow our dough to ferment for longer to allow it to develop its full fragrance and flavour. We use our own flours, specially imported from France, only natural yeast and sea salt and absolutely no additives or preservatives. A PAUL sandwich is made with all of our 127 years of baking expertise. Each baguette is individually shaped by hand in our bakery and freshly filled in our shops, and couldn’t be further from the uniform, chilled, packaged sandwich with its two square bread slices with a filling slapped in.Read More
