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.
