French Peasant

French PeasantVegan


French Peasant, our signature loaf, is unique with its addition of cracked wheat.

You can see the cracked wheat dotted throughout the bread, and it adds texture and depth of wheat flavor. The top of the loaf is a darker hue with a crispy crust.

Serving Suggestion

Part of what makes French Peasant so wonderful is its versatility. Experiment with different toppings. Try the dinner rolls; they are pleasing to both the wheat and white bread lovers!
