I always wanted to learn how to make really good bread- you know- those dark, crusty loaves that seemed to come from another, slower place and time-
Moving to Westchester from Brooklyn gave me the time and space to try my hand at baking bread. I definitely killed a few sourdough starters that I was given or that I actually bought... but the one I made from scratch, well, it's alive and well 3 1/2 years later!
In the last 3 years, I've sought out some of the best bakers in the country- whether in Vermont, North Carolina, Maine, New York, or San Francisco to learn new techniques to create my perfect loaf. Every bake brings new challenges! I've found mixing and shaping by hand, using natural leavening and organic local flour, and long fermentations all come together to craft that loaf I'm looking to make.
Baking bread is invigorating and restoring; the scent of a fresh loaf... and that first slice, are quite addictive. We eat real bread, and we want to share that loaf with you; whether it's by ordering a loaf or taking a workshop to learn sourdough techniques you can bring home and use to create your own fresh, simple, and delicious bread for you and your family.
