Riviera Bread focuses on naturally leavened sourdough made from just four ingredients:
flour, water, salt, wild yeast
Fermentation is long and slow, between 18 and 36 hours. Time develops unique flavor characteristics, allowing for easier digestion and the release of more readily available micronutrients.
We value ingredient sourcing and strive to highlight seasonal, California products. Our flours are certified organic, and stone milled whenever possible. We hope you’ll love the richness, variation, and texture of these handmade breads.
Riviera Bread is available for hands-on, guided, private classes. Learn the basics of fermentation, starter management, grain selection, hydration, shaping, proofing
