ELCLARO LUIS C. CHAVEZ
A taste of a well crafted artisan bread. The long fermentation process intensifies and develops flavors which creates more complex tasting notes and a more aromatic bread. The bread is also softer and is capable of retaining moisture longer. These rolls find the perfect balance of sweet and tart from the generous amount of California Raisins and a touch of sunny zingy lemon.
