Baguettes in the oven

When you’re baking a lot of baguettes you need a large special oven. We bake our bread directly on the hearth of our tunnel oven, where the bread is automatically loaded onto the oven plates and travels about 40 feet through the oven chamber. After about 25 minutes, what entered as pieces of dough exits as beautiful crispy baguettes with an open crumb and crispy crust!

CT Food Launchpad Pitch Night

This week in partnership with our sister business Atticus we hosted the CT Food Launchpad Pitch Night to connect emerging CT food brands with buyers from grocers and restaurants.

It was a great gathering of Connecticut entrepreneurs, buyers from regional grocers and restaurants, and food-curious folks.

We want to thank Lieutentant Governor Susan Bysiewicz for her support of this initiative, and also to New Haven Innovation Collaborative and CTNext for making this whole program possible!

If you’re a food brand or grocer interested in working with us, head over to and contact us. And stay tuned for our next Pitch Night event in a few months!




Production Team

Our production team is responsible for doing the final shape and quality check before the dough moves on to proofing. After the dough rises, it will bake in our European-style tunnel ovens.
