Not only has Gary and his team surpassed all expectations for the new mega store, they are also trying their hardest to get consumers educated as to what real, honest food is all about.

I was lucky enough to have spent a morning with The Artisan Baker – Barry Korb, to hear all about his non GMO, low GI, low sugar, 100% wheat, healthy bread –  that is available at Jacksons Real Food Market.  I was blown away by this man’s passion to create a healthy and nutritious alternative to the usual shop bought bread.

I believe it, because I heard the story and tested the produce.  This bread IS revolutionary and you better get yourself down there to sample the only bread I know, suitable for anyone with diabetic and gluten sensitive issues. There might also be a new product in production for kids which I am totally ecstatic about, but more on that soon.

Barry’s bread is selling for R39 a loaf at Jacksons Real Food Market.  

He stocks:

Plain Sourdough 

Seed

Rosemary + Olive

There is also a very cool bread slicer in store to help slice through the delicious crust with no effort. Barry managed to perfect blast freezing his fresh bread so you can literally just refresh the frozen bread at home in a hot oven. I don’t know about you, but I’m stocking up!

Instructions
  1. Slice the loaf of bread about 2 cm thick and again in half.
  2. Butter each slice and grease an enamel or oven safe bowl with butter.
  3. In an electric mixer beat the eggs, coconut sugar and vanilla essence until light and fluffy.
  4. Heat the milk and cream in the microwave and slowly pour into the egg mixture, while whisking on low.
  5. Add the nutmeg and mix through.
  6. Arrange the buttered slices of bread in an oven safe dish and cover with egg mixture. Push the bread into the liquid to ensure it's covered.
  7. Bake at 180 degrees Celsius for 35 minutes or until the egg mixture is set. Remove from oven and set aside.
  8. In the meantime, heat the last bit of cream in a microwave and add the chocolate. Mix until you have a smooth, rich liquid ganache.
  9. To serve, pour the chocolate ganache over the bread and butter pudding and garnish with fresh zest from a lime, orange and lemon.
