CH James is passionate when it comes to quality fresh ingredients and boutique products. Chef Franck is French trained and comes from a background of fine dining. He loves to make his own sauces and jams, for example, and have control over the cooking process. When it comes to bread CH James has elected to use bread from talented EDS Breads, a boutique Melbourne artisan baker who supplies niche establishments in Melbourne. We sat down with Eddie and partner Cheryl to discuss their passion for all things bread.
Eddie says the journey started when they were challenged by John Lawson from No. 8 by John Lawson in Crown. So impressed was John by their bread that he commissioned EDS Breads to supply the hatted restaurant with his fine breads. Eddie and Cheryl turned their huge home dining room into an artisan bakery.
