Once upon a time, each neighborhood had its own bread bakery. Residents would visit to pick up loaves of their favorite freshly baked breads. The intoxicating scent, the crackling crust, the chewy crumb...The baker knew his customers' names, and vice versa. We aim to recreate this old-world experience for our community.
Bread consists of five simple ingredients: flour, water, salt, yeast, and time. Our naturally leavened breads are fermented slowly to extract the most flavor and nutrition possible. Our tools are simple: a mixer, an oven, and baker's hands.
We're Franziska (Franzi) and Stephen. We moved to Collingswood in 2013. When not at the bakery, you may spot us walking our sometimes feisty and often lazy Lhasa Apso named Ludi, short for Ludwig van Beethoven.
