Bridor launches a new range of breads in collaboration with chef Sébastien Canonne
Bridor, a global bread and pastry company, has announced it is expanding its specialty food portfolio with the launch of an exciting new bread line.
Created in partnership with Chef Sébastien Canonne, founder of the French Pastry School in Chicago and Meilleur Ouvrier de France (MOF), the Cooked Bakery concept combines the three arts of gastronomy and nourishing ingredients in five Cooked Breads that engage five senses. With this range of locally created products, Bridor seeks to satisfy the growing desire for healthier foods and new flavors, textures and flavor combinations. Les Pains Cuisinés is the first line of products from the Boulangerie Cuisinée brand.
The brand’s recipes are vegan and clean with a short list of simple ingredients and no artificial colors, additives or preservatives. The unique combination of ingredients, including superfoods like spinach, flax seeds and garlic, and refined French processes that do not degrade the color or smell of bread come together for strongly appealing products with really rewarding tastes.
Each of the five Baked Breads is inspired by different cuisines from around the world. The three main flavors in each recipe clearly define the unique taste, texture and smell of breads, including:
- Spinach, Roasted Garlic and Turmeric Breads – inspired by European and Indian flavors
- Red beets, oatmeal and onion breads – inspired by Nordic European flavors
- Sweet potato, curry and flaxseed breads – inspired by Indian flavors
- Olives, hazelnuts and yuzu breads – inspired by Mediterranean and Asian flavors
- Purple carrots, celeriac and sesame seeds – inspired by Asian and Scandinavian flavors
“Since the day I joined forces with Bridor to bring the idea of this unique Cooked Bakery concept to life, we have invested ourselves body and soul in the development of this first range of innovative and inspiring bread products, the Cooked Breads, ”says Chef Sébastien Canonne, MOF. Driven by our shared passion to give new meaning, purpose and use to breads and all its applications, it took us years of hard work and dedication to create these balanced recipes with bold flavors, thin crust and with a soft crumb – each inspired by a different ethnic cuisine, always with the same goal of delighting the five senses to create truly memorable culinary moments with every bite. We are more than delighted to be able to offer these breads now and hope you will share our enthusiasm as soon as you can break, smell and taste our Baked Breads.
The product line is designed for upscale restaurants, cafes, food service companies, hotels, cruise lines, specialty retailers and delicatessens.
