This Week's Food News - Penny Fours

More than three years on from my initial Penny Fours review, I'm still obsessed with Penny Ransley's ham and provolone croissants. I trot up there regularly on Saturday mornings to get my hands on these flaky-buttery beauties, made with the ham and cheese rolled up inside. Another reason I’ve been keeping up my regular visits has been to keep my eye on Penny’s progress with her latest bakery innovation – sourdough. Penny spent time in Bronte cult bakery Iggy’s Bread, and you better believe it shows in her new range of breads!

Trying a crusty brown loaf of Penny Fours Sourdough ($8) was a revelation for me, neatly putting an end to a decade of driving back across town to Infinity Sourdough in Darlinghurst, despite living in the Inner West. The crust is flavoursome without being ridiculously chewy, and the interior is pillowy soft. If you’re smart enough to visit on weekends, Penny is also putting out some special flavours. I’m a fan of the high quality mixed olives in her Olive Sourdough ($7). You’ll also find other flavours popping up – like garlic and rosemary, cranberry and sunflower seed – all based on the same wonderful dough.

Matter of fact, I think I need me some of this good tasting sourdough bread now - lucky Penny Fours reopens tomorrow after a short January hiatus.
