Gerard decided twenty years ago to start working strictly organic. Since then he developed a wide range of delicious and artisanal recipes. He prefers working with the bare minimum: flour, water, salt and love. His motto: less is more. He prefers to work the dough with his hands. ‘Machines simply lack to understand the dough.’
In 2019 he developed an organic gluten free bread assortiment. Based on for instance oatmeal, buckwheat, chickpeas and fonio. To make sure everyone can enjoy the pleasure of bread.
At the first Nederlandse Zuurdesemproeverij (Dutch Sourdough Tasting) in 2018, Gerard’s ‘Generously filled Rye’ won the 1e price in the category experimental bread.
