Breads

“Peace goes into the making of a poem as flour goes into the making of bread” – Pablo Neruda

We bake our organic breads every day using fresh grains and local produce.  Our long-fermenting sourdoughs are bubbling along in their tubs as we prepare our wood-fired ovens. Once ready each loaf is carefully loaded onto the hearth and baked to it’s crispy and chewy perfection.

Today, Bread Alone bread is:

  • Handcrafted
  • Organic
  • Local
  • Healthy

We bake and deliver fresh bread seven days a week to our cafes, farmers’ markets and grocery stores throughout the Hudson Valley and New York City.

We also celebrate one of our artisan breads every month. September is the farewell to summer and the ushering in of our wonderful Hudson Valley fall. It is also a time for a comforting blend of organic white and wheat flour in a tradtional bread, like our French Sourdough Levain. To read more about what Levain is, check here.

BREAD FAQs

1. How should I store my bread?

Store bread at room temperature—for up to two days—in a sealed plastic bag. If you’re going to keep the bread longer two days, wrap bread tightly in foil, place in a freezer bag and freeze. Thaw the slices at room temperature, or in the microwave or oven. To thaw frozen loaf, heat the bread wrapped in foil in a 450-degree oven for 10 to 15 minutes. Remove the foil and return it to the oven for a minute or two to crisp.

2. What about storing bread in the fridge?

Only refrigerate bread that you’re intending to reheat (e.g., toast or grill) later on.

3. What about stale bread?

If you find yourself with stale bread, toast it lightly. It will regain enough of its former glory for you to enjoy your meal. You must, however, use it almost immediately or it will become quite brittle.
