The story of Red Bread

Red Bread was launched in January of 2011 to bring whole, natural and artisanal food to the people. Wild Yeasted Sourdough breads and pastries were our first offering and remain at the heart of Red Bread. We believe that bread should be nutritional and delicious. All it requires is good ingredients, care and time. We extend that belief to all our foods, constantly striving to bring the fields to your door.  

Sustainability and our environmental impact at all levels is important to us. We begin with ingredients sourced from local farmers utilizing organic practices and a high level of care for the food they produce. WE ARE COMMITTED TO 100% STONEGROUND WHOLE GRAINS IN ALL OUR BAKED GOODS, because they are more FAVORABLE, more nutritional dense and easier to digest.  In our kitchen, we strive for zero waste; using every available part of an ingredient, preserving and fermenting our own pantry and vermicomposting whatever remains into our garden. The food crafted in our kitchen arrives at your door in compostable  packaging.

Red Bread started with two bikes delivering to Venice Beach and quickly expanded.  In 2012 after a year of sold out days at the Santa Monica Farmers Market, we opened our pop up Brick & Mortar on Washington Blvd in July. Offering farm to fork breakfast, brunch and lunch six days a week.  Our pies, cakes, cookies, and savory options were a hit and we were named a Best Restaurant in Culver City And BEST NEW BAKERY by LA WEEKLY!  We also won awards for best pie, best rye bread, best cookie and were featured on the saturday cover of the los angeles times! (Above). 

 HAVING OUTGROWN OUR SPACE AFTER 2 YEARS, WE CLOSED OUR DOORS on washington blvd.  Red Bread has now expanded to offer direct delivery of a limited seasonal menu, Shipped priority mail nationwide. As well as custom Cakes, Pies and Donuts to Los Angeles.  

WE PARTNER WITH PEOPLE  and organizations ACROSS U.S.A TO BRING OUR BELOVED STATE POPUPS THROUGHOUT THE YEAR. WE ALSO TEACH A VARIETY OF PUBLIC AND PRIVATE CLASSES.   STAY TUNED TO OUR classes & Events page and our NEWSLETTER FOR THE NEXT EVENT AND MENU! SEND US AN EMAIL TO SCHEDULE A private class.
