Few scents can beat the aroma of freshly baked bread wafting through your home like a warm, comforting hug.
Lockdown gave many of us the time and opportunity to start making our own daily loaf and develop a new hobby.
With bread-baking booming, the arrival of ‘PAUL at Home’ couldn’t come at a better time.
The new online range from the much-loved group of French artisan bakeries features bread-baking kits and product sets, and is available nationwide.
Bake Off winner
To celebrate the launch, PAUL has partnered with the 2019 Great British Bake Off winner and pro-baker, David Atherton, on a ‘step-by-step’ recipe video using the bread starter kit for fans to follow along at home.
With GBBO soon to be back on our screens for a new series, now is the perfect time to get creative in the kitchen. The PAUL bread kit contains everything you need to create a delicious loaf including 500g strong white bread flour, 15g active dried yeast, a bread proving basket, a PAUL cotton sac a pain for keeping the bread fresh, a dough scraper, and recipe booklet (£33).
If you opt for the larger bread kit you will receive rolled oats, 1kg of strong white bread flour and also 1kg of multigrain bread flour (£38).
Seedy Loaf recipe
Stick to the traditional bake or take inspiration from David Atherton and follow his ‘Seedy Loaf’ recipe with flax meal, potato and seeds for added texture. Visit David’s video at https://www.instagram.com/paul_bakeryuk/channel site.
As well as the two bread kits, there are also six exciting product sets, all available for next day delivery across mainland UK. Items from the PAUL pantry include a selection of three PAUL jams with a branded cotton tote bag (£16.25); a coffee and hot chocolate bundle featuring a generous 1L box of PAUL hot chocolate, 250g PAUL freshly ground coffee and a branded Keep Cup (£22.75); and three bags of the finest baguette crisps created using PAUL bread with flavours such as Provençal Herb, Sea Salt & Jalapeno and Garlic & Herb.
PAUL is the biggest bakery in France and is still family run by fifth generation bakers. The company has more than 30 outlets in London, two in Oxford and two in Surrey.
