TPK&B’s focaccia has a wonderful crusty outside, and a soft and fluffy inside. This is, hands down, very good bread. And it’s made even better by the addition of herbs! It makes the bread taste fresh and savory.
We also carry a second variant that has parmesan in addition to herbs; this one has an additional subtle saltiness and nuttiness to it that rounds out the flavors beautifully.
This is a bread that is great to eat on its own. But I’s also perfect as a base for simple sandwiches, or as an appetizer to dip into balsamic vinegar and olive oil. It’s also great to mop up that delicious pasta sauce during meal times.
We are delighted to shine a spotlight on our favorite home bakers, and this takes the cake (or the bread!) Our connection with TPK&B started as a serendipitous meeting over the love of food. TPK&B’s head boss has been a seasoned client of The Bow Tie Duck for a while, and we are happy not only to be serving her with the best fine foods, but also to be enjoying the lovely produce that emerges from her home bakery, and getting the chance to share it with everyone else.
Baked with love, TPK&B prepares your breads in the mornings of your expected delivery day. To ensure that you get to enjoy this with the best experience, we encourage you to indulge as soon as you receive your loaves.
Best consumed upon arrival, but you can store it on the kitchen counter at room temperature for up to two days. If you’ve sliced into it, you can leave it cut side down on the chopping board. You may also place the sliced loaf in a ceramic bread box or a clean paper bag. Never store bread in the refrigerator, or else it will dry out. By the third day, you can place the bread in a large Ziplock bag, but please note that the crust will soften and your bread will require toasting to refresh it. For storage up to three months in the freezer, wrap your bread in parchment paper and place it back in the Ziplock bag.
To refresh frozen bread, take it out of the freezer to thaw in the paper wrapping for a few hours or overnight. Make sure it gets to room temperature. Preheat your oven to 175°C. When ready, spritz your thawed loaf lightly with water on all sides to create steam, place on a baking tray, and heat for 15-20 minutes. Allow bread to cool on a rack for at least half an hour before serving.
