A Day in the Loaf: Making Our Sourdough

If you’ve ever tried our La Brea Bakery Sourdough, you know how truly magnificent it is. Under its golden brown crust awaits a mildly tart and subtle sour flavor ready for you to enjoy. But before you can break bread, we need to create it. So, how does that happen?

Toast to Creativity

To some, a single slice of toast is just a place to put butter, jelly, peanut butter, or cinnamon and sugar. But not you. You see it as a canvas for creativity. And if you don’t, you will soon. Because there’s more to toast than using it to build the expected.

Keep good bread from going bad

We’ve all been there. We buy a new loaf of bread with grand intentions of eating it all in some spectacular fashion outside of PB&J. But, as the days go by, the bread sits there. Soon turning to a dry, stale loaf. But not this time! This time you’ll be ready.

It’s Grilling Szzzzn. Break Out the Baguettes.

This summer, think beyond the hamburger bun. Throw some artisan bread on that barbie. With La Brea Bakery baguettes, you can take simple backyard get-togethers to tasty new heights. The easiest way? Just brush some butter or olive oil on sliced baguettes and put them face down on the grill.

Charcuterie-Ready Breads For The Perfect Grazing Board

Cured meats, cheeses and spreads are nothing without fresh slices of artisan breads – namely, our delicious breads! Crafting the perfect charcuterie boards for entertaining is all about balancing textures and flavors. The creamy with the crunchy, the sweet with the salty and so on.
