Meringue - ChesterfieldMeringue - Chesterfield


Meringue - Chesterfield

What is an Artisan? There is no mystery, it is simply a skilled, manual worker, a craftsman. We take four basic ingredients: flour, water, salt, yeast. We mix, ferment, shape and bake. You then have one of the oldest, simplest foods known to man. Ancient Egyptians discovered fermenting flour and water to develop sourdoughs, modern technology enables us to create an array of international produce. Come feast, relax, and talk with the Artisans. Also, you may be wondering why we call ourselves “Meringue”?
