COSTEAUX ARTISAN BREADS
At Costeaux French Bakery, we believe that bread is an important part of every meal. Often it’s the first “food product” that a guest will partake in their dining experience. We take great pride in our long standing tradition of hand crafting world-class breads.
Our breads are baked on a hearth oven imported from Italy. Breads are hand shaped and prepared over a 24-48 hour period. This long-fermentation process provides a unique flavor to each loaf based on its ingredients, natural starter and a long-slow rise.
