Henry Street Miche

Henry Street Miche - The Home Bakery
Baked fresh and available on Saturdays. Available whole or in quarters.

The larger the loaf, the better the flavor! And weighing in at an impressive 8.8 pounds, the Henry Street Miche is a big loaf with character to match. 

Considered the traditional bread of the French countryside, the Miche was born out of necessity. For centuries, French villages had communal ovens where the townsfolk would bring their dough to be baked, and the Miche could weigh from four to as much as twelve pounds. Such large loaves would feed a family for days or weeks, until the next baking day. No added yeast.

Unbromated & unbleached wheat flour (niacin, reduced iron, thiamine mononitrate, riboflavin, folic acid, malted barley flour), water, pure medium rye flour, sea salt, culture, coarse whole wheat flour  

Store your un-sliced bread on the counter, cut side down, for 2-3 days. Storing the loaf in plastic is fine, but it will soften the crust. Our bread can be frozen. Just double bag the loaf in plastic and freeze for up to a month.

Ready to eat? Pre-heat oven to 350°F. Remove bread from the freezer and remove the plastic bags. Place the frozen loaf directly on the oven rack and bake for about 40 minutes. Remove the loaf from the oven and let it rest for a few minutes before slicing.

  • Slice it and slather it in Sea Salt Butter...AWESOME!
  • Great for sandwich making - especially good grilled.
  • Use it to top French Onion Soup.
  • Makes amazing salad croutons and stuffing for poultry or pork.
