  • If you like crusty, flavorful sourdough, this bread's for you. Cut into the caramelized crust and you’ll find a moist, open crumb dappled with flecks of organic rye. This bread placed 3rd overall in a tasting of mail order breads conducted by Fortune magazine on January 22, 2007. Try brushing thick slices with extra virgin olive oil, lightly grilling them and topping them off with sautéed leeks and wild mushrooms (morels if you can get them). A fantastic accompaniment to soups and stews.  The mild, slightly tangy flavor makes this one Breadworks founder Greg Carpenter's favorite daily breads and our longstanding bestseller.  Pictured with a lovely, hand-stamped linen bread bag made by our friends at Three Pines Studio in Cross Village, MI.

  • Pick 3 of the greatest flavors... Almond, Coconut, and Chocolate... and mix them into an all-butter scone batter, bake them to perfection, and see how long you can go without digging in.
  • Break into this chewy, wheaty sourdough baguette when you want something more substantial than the typical Parisian-style yeasted baguette.  Nurtured from our house sourdough culture and spiked with a healthy dose of Whole Wheat flour, this baguette has a rich flavor and satisfying chewiness that will stand up to the heartiest cheeses and the richest charcuterie.
  • Toasty roasted pecans in our delicious maple shortbread.  A classic combination!
  • Michigan apples filling wrapped with our all-butter crust.  Comfort food at its best!
  • Delicious, all-butter crust wrapped around our Michigan grown tart Montmorency cherry filling.  Makes a great mid-afternoon munchie, or a substantial complement to a morning cup of coffee.
  • Our 3 pack Nutcase includes all three of our snack nuts at a slightly reduced price.  What a great gift for yourself or that nutty person in your life!
  • Handcrafted bread linen bag.  Made by Three Pines Studio in Cross Village, Michigan.  Traditionally, French bread was stored in linen (sac à pain) to preserve both the freshness and crust of the baguette.  Linen can absorb humidity up to 35% without giving a sensation of wetness.  Linen has both heating and cooling qualities.  At home, the sac à pain has its own place, hanging from a cupboard or doorknob.  It quickly becomes part of the household. Each item is a unique piece made from traditional woodblock print.  Sizes, shapes, and colors vary.
  • Send some cheer when you can’t be near. In lieu of flowers, how about sending some Flour Power?   A thoughtful gift for someone who needs cheering.  Great for new parents, those recovering from surgery at home, or just to say “I’m thinking of you today”. Comes "ready to gift" in a sturdy kraft box sent in a larger box with protective packaging to help ensure safe arrival.  If you would like a note included in the box, please include your sentiments in the "note" section upon checkout. This box includes the following: (1) Loaf of Breadworks Sourdough (1) 16oz. Tub of Addictive Granola (1) Currant Orange Scone (1) Mixed Berry Scone
  • Our Breakfast Bread checks all the boxes with its subtly sweet cinnamon-scented wheat dough, studded with raisins and toasted walnuts. Toast it and slather it with butter or your favorite nut butter, make some amazing French Toast with it, or use it in your favorite bread pudding recipe.   Any way you slice it, this bread will bring joy to your taste buds.  Pictured with a lovely, hand-stamped linen bread bag made by our friends at Three Pines Studio in Cross Village just north of here.  Linen is the very best way to store bread for longevity and freshness, not to mention reducing plastic bag waste.
