Great breads have a timeless quality. The ingredients - flour, water, salt, starters - haven't change over centuries, across borders and oceans. Crusty bread brings both sustenance and great pleasure.

Present day New York City offers a remarkable selection of breads from an even more amazing group of bakers - ranging from local neighborhood fixtures to giant suppliers of restaurants and amazing retail shops. The breadth, variety and quality of these breads deserves an ovation.

So why get involved?

Oven Artisans started as an idea - to innovate by baking breads that represent New York both regionally and culturally. To blend ancient, classic techniques with more modern thinking, ideas and local ingredients. To give New Yorkers different breads that represent our current culture, and reflect this moment in time.

I trust you will enjoy my breads.
