Baker and owner Anne Kostroski began making bread in Milwaukee in 1994. She says, “Crumb bread was born out of a desire to bring Chicago a delicious, crustier, healthier loaf of bread.” After attending the Culinary Institute of America Greystone, Anne worked in bakeries and restaurants, including her own, Sauce and Bread Kitchen, opened in March 2013 in Chicago's Edgewater neighborhood. Using organic flours from Illinois, Wisconsin, and North Dakota, Wisconsin cheeses, and “the amazing produce found at the Market,” she bakes such varieties as chili-cheddar, harvest wheat, semolina, sunflower-spelt, and seasonal fruit and vegetable focaccias. Her boules and other breads incorporate “all of the seasonal goodness that the Midwest has to offer."
