What is Artisan Bread?

A good recipe and a few simple ingredients are the starting point for all types of artisan bread. Baking it to warm, crusty, flavorful perfection, however, requires far more than mixing a little flour, water, salt and yeast and baking the bread.

Each of our artisan bread varieties is created by Bakers who have a high degree of expertise in the old-world bread baking techniques. They allow the dough to ferment a little longer to develop a deeper flavor and open crumb. A steam-infused hearth baking technique forms a perfectly balanced crunchy exterior and soft interior. As a result, every loaf is unique; not churned out in cookie cutter shapes. Our artisan baking process takes time and TLC, but it’s all worthwhile when you taste it.

Stop by your local Giant Eagle or Market District Bakery to see what’s fresh out of the oven today. Then, pair it with these recommended wines, cheeses and spreads.
