La Brea Bakery Artisan Breads
When pastry chef Nancy Silverton couldn’t find artisan bread good enough for her restaurant, she spent a year crafting the perfect recipe, creating bread with a caramelized, crunchy golden crust, soft interior, and rustic appearance. Her signature recipe resulted in such delicious artisan bread that she opened La Brea Bakery on La Brea Avenue in 1989. When people lined up outside her bakery every morning and the bread sold out by 11 a.m., she knew she had a hit.
Over 30 years later, La Brea Bakery artisan bread is rated among the best in the industry because they adhere to a rigorous process and recipe that mirrors those first loaves on La Brea Ave. The secret ingredient to their delicious bread is time. While some bakeries speed up the proofing process, the bread rises more quickly; La Brea Bakery slows down this process so more complex flavors and textures can develop. It takes over 24 hours to make a loaf of La Brea Bakery bread from starter to finish. La Brea Bakery has many delicious varieties to suit your business needs, from loaves, rounds, and rolls to sliced sandwich bread.
