I first learned to bake in an old-fashioned bagel bakery in New Jersey at age 14. The lure of the smell of fresh baked bread proved enough to get me up at 4 AM, so I guess bread is sort of in my genes. Later, while working overseas, I was introduced to authentic French, German and Italian breads. It’s amazing to visit a bakery with many dozens of bread specialties, each more enticing and delicious than the next. We missed these breads here in Atlanta, so I worked to recreate some of these specialties, first for ourselves, then later for friends and neighbors. Before I knew it, I was baking and selling at local farmers markets. The lure of the smell of fresh baked bread still gets me up at o-dark thirty…

Our artisan-crafted breads are truly old world style.  They are hand made from only the finest ingredients.  Slow, cold-fermentation brings out the intricate flavors of the grains; careful handling delivers a rustic texture while steam-hearth baking at high temperature delivers a superb crust.

We specialize in original recipe breads from France, Italy and Germany. Our assortment includes many whole-grain and multi-grain varieties, providing vitamins, minerals, high fiber and unsurpassed flavor.

Our signature bread, “Pain à l’Ancienne” is an authentic French baguette, crafted after a recipe from Philippe Gosselin, one of the most celebrated bakers in Paris.  Fans claim it is simply addictive. Paired with your favorite cheese and wine, it makes a perfect finish to a long day.

Please ask about our other hand-crafted breads, special orders or catering for office or private parties.

We are happy to serve you and welcome your feedback and comments.
