If you have been an avid follower of my blog, you would have noticed that I’m a fanatical bread lover and a burger addict.
I have written a few posts on some of my favourite bakeries such as Hagen, Craft Bakers, Tommy Le Baker, etc, all which sells artisanal and healthy loaves which I’m so fond of.
While Bonjour is not exactly a pure artisan or European breads bakery, I find their loaves of a higher grade from the usual commercial bakeries, and for the very same reason that kept me returning for more each week.
Correct me if I’m mistaken but I’m of the opinion that the average Malaysian prefers his/her breads soft and fluffy rather than the hard crusted, chewy and heavy European-style breads.
At Tommy Le Baker and Craft Bakers, their breads are made from scratch using imported flour and all loaves are preservative, additive, dough improver and softener free. These are truly hand-baked goodness. But light and floaty these loaves aren’t for sure, and it will be sometime before the average Malaysian appreciates such breads. Admittedly there has been a shift in the bread consuming society recently, a testament to the amount of artisan bakeries popping up of late. But some bakeries still struggled, such as Hagen Bake and Brew, one of my favourite bakeries which had since gave up baking their own loaves and now stocks Heistand breads instead. Sigh.
Anyhow, back to Bonjour Garden.
