A Friendly Bread

Lane Levine, the owner/operator/baker of A Friendly Bread, started baking bread in 2010 in California when his favorite pickup spot for challah was closed on the day he needed it. He summoned the decades of experience that his grandfather had developed in baking for friends, and made challah for Sabbath dinner. A few years later, Lane took up the challenge of baking sourdough -- a difficult process with natural fermentation and wet, unwieldy dough -- and became hooked.

Lane gathered a team of 5 taste testers, who provided feedback on two flavors per weekend for two months. Not all breads turned out great. Not all flavors made it. But in general, it was a go. One of the comments on the feedback form from Lane's husband David on a particularly engaging but gentle loaf was that it was "a friendly bread." Hence, the name.

All of A Friendly Bread's products (excepting our challah on some days) are naturally leavened, meaning they are made with a sourdough starter that consists of fermenting colonies of wild yeast and bacteria. Bread made in this manner is purported to be more healthful, easier for gluten-sensitive people to digest, and much gentler on sugar levels for people with diabetes. We are not a team of dietitians, but the research is out there for you to discover.
