baked fresh daily tuesday - saturday

Artisan breads are made to be eaten. Our breads will be at their very best on the day of purchase. We spend 24 to 48 hours to hand-craft each loaf, developing flavor, crust and crumb. We use no preservatives, and as with all forms of traditional baking, the life of your loaf is fleeting. Purchase only what you will use.  We promise there will be more tomorrow.

Handling & Care

 
 

To store Blue Dog bread, we recommend that you leave it at room temperature in a paper bag for the first day. If cut, place the cut side down on a cutting board or counter. 

For next-day use, put the loaf in a plastic bag to maintain freshness. This will soften the crust, but reheating the bread in a 350° oven for 6 to 8 minutes, or until crusty, will restore the quality. If the loaf has been cut, we recommend wrapping it in foil for reheating. 

Blue Dog breads also freeze very well. Wrap the bread in foil, then plastic. When ready to use, fully defrost the bread. Then reheat the loaf in foil as described above. 

Never store your bread in the refrigerator or heat it in a microwave. Both practices will result in a less-than-satisfactory loaf.
