Our artisan breads are crafted by hand with traditional ingredients, no additives or preservatives. Bread is humankind’s staple food and has been for millennia, so why change what is proven? We use flour, water, salt and a natural levain in our breads. Levain is a leavening agent, or bread starter, which is frequently used in place of yeast to raise dough. It’s French in origin, and food historians estimate it has been in use since the 1600s.
All our breads are made fresh on a daily basis and baked in a stone deck oven. We believe that the simplicity of our breads is what makes them so special. The majority of our breads contain no sugar, no fat (oil) and no dairy which makes them delicious, healthy and vegan-friendly. And we offer a variety of low-gluten and gluten-free breads.
