Los Gatos, CA
Manresa Bread is a neighborhood bakery founded by Partner and Head Baker Avery Ruzicka, a 2020 James Beard finalist. Conceived in the kitchen of Chef David Kinch’s three-Michelin-star Manresa restaurant. Ruzicka mills 90% of the—primarily local—grains in house on 40” New American Stone Mill; sources high-quality artisanal and local ingredients; employs time-honored baking techniques; and uses natural fermentation processes to create a rotating selection of sourdough loaves and sweet and savory pastries.
"Manresa Bread, the best bakery in Los Gatos and also for some miles... Hopefully, you’ll have had the good sense to book yourself in for the bag of bread, filled with four of the most beautiful sourdough loaves you can buy with American money." - Food & Wine
