If you search the Internet for an Ojai company using the terms "artisan", "savory", "local", "fresh baked" and "just plain good" your search would return Knead Baking Company in Ojai, California.
Knead provides individualized artisan pastries baked to order. Their rustic, Italian-influenced baked goods feature a variety of flours, grains and local farm-fresh fruits and vegetables. My mouth is watering as I type. Their food is that fresh, that good.
If you have an anniversary, a birthday or need someone to provide creative food for a special party, they will bake, deliver and set up for individual plate or buffet orders. Your choice! They have an extensive offering including mini pastries, bars, cookies, cakes, coffee cakes, scones, cinnamon buns, pies, galettes and breads.
One of my favorite items continues to be their flat bread. The neat thing about Knead flatbreads is their seasonality. The savory rosemary flatbread has a combination of potatoes, cheese and fresh herbs. Perfect for fall weather. If you walk into their bakery today, don't be surprised to see a colorful pizza flatbread with sun dried tomatoes, roasted red peppers, goat cheese and baby green chard. A flatbread for all seasons.
Knead Baking Company products are delicious and they are good for the environment. They pride themselves on using local organic ingredients and their packaging is made of 100% recycled paper.
