Take & bake. Bake now or freeze for later. A superb sandwich roll drawn from a traditional Italian recipe. Flavorful and versatile with a soft crust and light center. Our Story: When pastry chef Nancy Silverton couldn't find artisan bread good enough for her restaurant, she spent a year crafting the perfect recipe, creating bread with a caramelized, golden crust, soft inside, and rustic appearance. Her signature recipe resulted in such delicious artisan bread that she opened La Brea Bakery on La Brea Avenue. When there were people lined up outside her bakery every morning, and the bread sold out by 11 AM, she knew she had a hit.
