Celebrating 30 Years of French Style Excellence with Bridor

Based on exceptional French baking know-how, the production process of the Bridor by Frédéric Lalosbreads includes slow kneading; gentle, progressive rolling-out and a long proving period, to ensure a truly intense flavour. This range provides a unique bread experience combining tra­ditional sourdough with a contemporary, light crispy crust. The collection includes 14 large loaves, 2 baguettes and 1 ciabatta.
