Oakwood Bread Company was born in August 2021. I had recently retired from a Remodeling and Restoration career. Interestingly enough I had been designing Kitchens for years as a cabinet designer. My back story has a few episodes working as a line cook in restaurants, and a short stint as an apprentice baker in a French Patisserie. It seems I’m destined to come full circle and once again enjoy feeding people. My adventure in baking Sourdough Breads was inspired by my oldest daughter who has a small batch Sourdough Business in Columbia SC. She encouraged me to take the dive last summer and I took the plunge. With a little starter and a couple of recipes we launched Oakwood Bread Company. It quickly took off and by the end of the holidays last year we were rolling. I have a passion for all culinary arts, but the simplicity and art of Sourdough Bread baking appeals to me most. Being a history buff, and appreciating the legacy of Sourdoughs, it’s been a satisfying experience for me.
