Artisan bread is bread that is handcrafted by an artisan baker rather than massproduced. In its purest form, it is made from only flour, water, salt and yeast. First introduced by the Egyptians in 8000BC, it was gradually overshadowed by the rise of large-scale production factories that churned out a huge array of commercial breads with chemical additives to extend their shelf life and soften their crumb. However, in recent times artisan bread is experiencing a resurgence in popularity, as more consumers seek to enjoy the wholesomeness of artisan bread. The artisan baker is a craftsperson who selects quality ingredients, provides an ideal environment for the bread to develop, and uses his skill and knowledge in baking science to mix, ferment, shape and bake a handcrafted loaf of bread. Hence, while artisan bread usually consists of not more than five ingredients, its texture and flavour are generally superior to that of commercial breads.
