Bread 101

Storing Bread

Our breads should be stored at room temperature in a plastic bag, bread bag, or well ventilated bread bin to prevent the bread from drying out.

Crusty loaves and rolls, such as Pane di Casa, are best stored in a paper bag and eaten fresh on the day they are baked.

We recommend that you not store bread in the fridge as it will dry out.

Freezing Bread

All breads from COBS Bread are suitable to freeze and can be stored in the freezer for up to four months. Simply place the bread in a freezer bag, remove as much air as possible and seal the bag.

To thaw, remove the seal and leave the bread to defrost naturally in the packaging. Alternatively, remove the bread from the bag, wrap in a paper towel and place in the microwave. Microwave the bread on high for bursts of ten seconds, but be careful not to overheat the bread.

Reviving Bread

To revive the crust on bread, pre-heat an oven to 400oF/200oC. Place the bread on a rack in the oven. Heat the bread for 6 to 8 minutes. This will gently warm the bread and make the crust lovely and crunchy again. Microwaving is not recommended for reviving bread.
