At Kraftsmen we source the finest unbleached and unbromated flours
which are gently mixed to retain their delicate flavors.
After mixing, doughs are given a rest to hydrate and develop
more flavor before they are then shaped by hand and baked.
Most Kraftsmen artisan breads use a starter that adds a depth of flavor and essential leavening agents. Without these hard-working natural yeasts, our bread would not have its artisan quality or unique flavors.
All of our bagels and pretzels are shaped by hand then quickly dipped in lye—which gives each its signature chewy crust, deep brown color, and shine—before baking in the oven.
We carefully layer the highest butterfat butter can we find into our croissant and danish doughs. Each is then shaped by hand and baked to a dark, flaky treat. We also use fresh, seasonal ingredients.
Ancient breads from east and west Europe, baked mainly in stone hearth ovens that create a deep dark color and a thick crust.
