Bácús is a micro-bakery crafting Irish and European Artisan bread in the traditional method. A desire to produce a variety of fine breads locally and the Real Bread Ireland campaign inspired Orla Gowen to establish Bácús Bhréanainn at her home in Brandon in 2009. After completing a number of specialist courses and with the support of Údarás na Gaeltachta her micro bakery has now moved to Páirc Ghnó na Coille in Dingle.
The Real Bread Ethos
Real bread in its purest form is bread made without the use of processing aids or any other artificial additives. Real bread is simply flour, water and fermentation, yeast or sourdough, generally with added salt. Natural additives in specialist bread include nuts, seeds, fruit, butter, egg, milk. Bácús Bhréanainn is a member of Real Bread Ireland, a network of craft bakers who have come together to promote good baking and real bread.
