Nominated for: BEST Bakery
In 1993, we opened our bakery with the goal of bringing to Philadelphia the amazing breads we had tasted in Europe. While we have grown enormously since then, we have not changed our focus a bit. Our bread is still hand shaped and baked using techniques that have been in use for hundreds of years. Most of the products sold in our stores are made by small producers like ourselves who are trying to preserve
artisinal techniques and traditions in such areas as farming and cheesemaking.
