OUR PATRON SAINT
Saint Honoré: Our Patron Saint of Bakers
St. Honoré Bakery Mosman is named for the patron saint of bakers, Saint Honoré. As tradition goes, a young man named Honoré became the Bishop of Amiens in 554. During his service a number of miraculous events occurred, which spared farmers, millers, and bakers from natural disasters.
Residents of France connected the miracles with Bishop Honoré and in 1204 a Parisian baker built a chapel to commemorate him. Today, the chapel is no longer standing, but the name, Saint Honoré, is etched in a gate leading to Faubourg and Rue Saint Honoré in the heart of Paris.
SAINT HONORÉ DAY CELEBRATION
Saint Honoré of Amiens – Patron Saint of Bakers
As the legend goes, a young man named Honoré became the Bishop of Amiens in 554. When it was known in his hometown that he had been proclaimed bishop, his nursemaid, who was baking bread for the family, refused to believe that Honoratus had been elevated to such a position. She remarked that she would believe the news only if the peel she had been using to bake bread put down roots and turned itself into a tree.
When the peel was placed into the ground, it was transformed into a blackberry tree that gave flowers and fruit. This miraculous tree was still being shown in the sixteenth century.
During his service a number of miraculous events occurred, which spared farmers, millers, and bakers from natural disasters. Residents of France connected the miracles with Bishop Honoré and in 1204 a Parisian baker built a chapel to commemorate him. Today, the chapel longer standing, but the name, Saint Honoré, is etched in a gate leading to Faubourg and Rue Saint Honoré in the heart of Paris.

A French Experience, Freshly baked every day for everlasting taste.
The basis of our baking techniques is the respect of the French tradition that has been passed on for generations. We prefer the method that champions a delicate balance of short mixing and slow fermentation alternated with a gentle manual touch to provide the perfect finish of a premier loaf of bread.
Sourdough has been made since ancient times; it dates back to Ancient Egypt around 1500 BC. In Europe it has been used as the main kind of bread until they developed a way to cultivate yeast in the middle Ages. Rye bread is still popular in Europe and since baker’s yeast isn’t really useful for leavening rye bread the sourdough method is still used.
From a scientific perspective, a sourdough starter is a natural leaven – a mixture of grains and liquid (usually flour and water) inhabited by so-called “wild” yeasts and bacteria which leaven and flavour bread dough. These yeasts are the yeasts that thrive naturally on the surface of grains, fruits and vegetables, in the air and in the soil.
