Sourdough Bake-At-Home Bread Arrives At Costco

Have you ever tasted a true, traditional artisan, organic sourdough bread? Now imagine the smell of fresh baked sourdough bread coming from your very own oven! With Organic Sourdough Bread from The Essential Baking Company, you can Bake-At-Home for fresh baked bread when you want it. The best part is, it’s now available in a 3-pack at select Costco locations!

Our sourdough bread is made the tradition way, using a natural starter (mother dough) or “Mamacita” as we lovingly call it and only four organic/non-GMO ingredients; Organic Unbleached Wheat Flour, Water, Salt, Organic Malt. That’s right, we don’t add commercial yeast and our bread is naturally fat free and sugar free! Unlike other imitation sourdough bread, our true sourdough ferments very slowly for over 12 hours at a cool temperature which creates a more complex, distinguished taste. Our unique Stay-Fresh Package keeps our bread Fresh For Months, Not Days.

    Hello, Costco (in North Carolina) does not plan on selling your sourdough bread any more. It’s been a staple for my daughter because of her health issues, (gastroparesis), so we buy in large quantities -ideally, my daughter needs 2 loaves a day to keep weight on. I have been ordering it through you but the shipping cost puts the price out of the park (almost double per loaf). Would your company consider using the “If it fits it ships” option from the USPS?

      Jennifer, thank you so much for sharing your story with us. This has really struck a cord with us and got us looking into better shipping options again. Hopefully we can come up something better soon!
      Filling out a customer comment card at Costco is a good idea if you’d like to continue to buy our bread there. They are usually great about listening to their customers.

        Thank you for your response Kendra! We did speak to Costco and filled out their comment card (as did some other friends/patients who are also interested in still buying your sourdough). Costco led us to believe that your company was not offering it to them anymore due to a price point issue. Please let me know if your company will be willing to offer the “If It Fits It Ships” option soon. Thank you~

    I first learned of your bread through QVC. I purchased it and fell in love so much that I immediately purchased another. Now I see it is no longer available on QVC. I’m freaking out. I NEED your bread. Will you be back on QVC and when will that be? PLEASE make these breads easily available. I have no idea where I can purchase them in my area (I live in Dana Point, CA). Thanks so much for listening and keep doing what you’re doing because your bread are sensational.

      Debra, thanks for writing in! We’re so glad to hear that you discovered us on QVC! We had so much fun being on the air with them! At this point in time, I’m not sure when our next airing on QVC will be. If you’d like to see us on again, it doesn’t hurt to let them know.
      Our Bake-at-Home bread can be found at your local Costco and on our website.

    Just wanted to point out- the paper wrapper says to bake for 8-15 minutes, but the instructions on the plastic say 8-10 minutes. Which is correct? We’re going by trial and error and, so far, 14 minutes or so seems best.

      Kendra says:

      Thank you Tiffany. We’ll take a look. You are absolutely correct with going with the trial and error approach. It really does depend on your oven or BBQ grill and how crispy of a crust you’d like. I like my Bake-at-Home bread baked a little more, so I usually have it in the oven for about 14 minutes as well. I like to brush it with olive oil and sprinkle sea salt on top before baking it. My Grandmother wraps it up in foil.

    HI, my name is Robert and my wife and love your sourdough bread that we had bought at Costco. We were sad to hear that you pulled it from their shelves. We had tried your rosemary bread and didn’t like it as well. We tried to find it elsewhere but it was way more money. Are there plans on bringing it back to Costco

      Kendra says:

      Thanks for your message, Robert. We’re glad to hear that you enjoyed the sourdough. The best thing to do is to fill out a customer comment card at your local Costco requesting the sourdough. We aren’t sure which varieties the individual stores will carry. We’ve been sampling some new varieties and our Tuscan and Seeded Multigrain have been popular, so we will have to wait to see what happens.

    Hi,

    We love your sourdough bread and use it to create amazing garlic bread. Unfortunately, our Costco in Temecula, Ca is not carrying it any longer. I talked to them and they said that you, as the vendor, pulled the plug on selling it there. Is this true? If so, where and how can I get my hands on it! Thanks!

    We tried it on the grill per the package instructions and it was awful. It was hard and dense in the center. We’ll give it a try in the oven. Hope it’s better. And I agree with another poster … the glue darn near tore the skin off my fingers.

      Kendra says:

      I’m sorry to hear that it didn’t turn out so well. I’m wondering if the heat on your grill wasn’t hot enough and the bread needed to cook longer? You can always throw it back on. Grill heat will vary of course so some experimentation may be necessary. I like to brush the top of the loaf with a bit of olive oil and maybe some sea salt, wrap it in foil (leaving a bit of an air vent at the top) and grill it on my outdoor grill. I take a look at it after 8-10 minutes to see if it’s done yet. If it seems to be heated all the way through then I take it off.
      Sorry about the glue. We recently tried a different glue for the packaging since the previous didn’t stick as well.

    Can frozen loaf of sourdough bread be cooked without thawing. Purchased package of 3 loaves and need to cook one in a hurry but there are no instructions if frozen. Many thanks.

    • Kendra
      Kendra says:

      Yes, you absolutely can! Go ahead and put the frozen loaf directly on the oven rack, in a preheated oven to 425. It will be done in about 15-20 minutes. Set the timer for 10 minutes and check on the loaf. You will probably need another 10 minutes, depending on your oven.

        It is back in our Costco in TN and we bought 6 packages. It tastes so awesome!

        But, one of the three pack in the first one we bought last week has mold spots all over it. It does not have a whole in the package that is visible but it must have lost its vacuum seal or something. I hope that won’t happen with any of the others since we bought so many.

      Beth, I’m so sorry to hear of your families loss. Your local Costco in California should carry our Organic Sourdough Bake-At-Home bread. You can always ask them if they plan to order it and fill out a customer comment card. They determine which locations they will carry our products in. We will also be launching a new website and you will be able to purchase our Bake-At-Home Sourdough and Rosemary bread as well as our gluten free products online.

    Kendra, it was one of those things that caught my eye, and I put it in my basket…..then put it back on the shelf, thinking “how is that possible?” ……took a few steps, went back, and read the package again, and put it back in the basket, thinking “this is something I think I’m gonna love”…..

    I must admit, the bread itself is spectacular, much denser and richer than I imagined. So so good with some melted butter on it right out of the oven. The sour bite is perfect.

    When is the ciabatta coming out in these packages?

    I just discovered your bake at home sourdough in the Stay Fresh packaging at the Costco on 138th St. in eastern Portland. Wow, it’s exactly what I was looking for. I love that I can keep it in the pantry instead of taking up more valuable space in the freezer. I’m about half way through the first loaf…… will probably finish it by myself in the next couple hours!! Being a bachelor living in the boonies, it’s hard to enjoy fresh sourdough or other delights, so this is fantastic! I’m hoping to see other varieties available sometime.

      Oh no! I’m sorry to hear that that happened! Thanks for the feedback. The wrapper was previously falling off and now it’s apparently on there too well. I’ve passed this along to our team. I usually use my kitchen sheers and carefully cut the wrapper off, making sure to not puncture the package that I’m not about to bake.

    I tried baking it at 375 tonight for 18 minutes. It came out with a pretty hard crust, so I think I should have taken it out a minute or two sooner. Tasted really good even with the extra crunchy crust.

    We LOVE your sourdough bread! We love the fact that it has a long shelf life, comes in a package of 3, that we bake it ourselves, and that it is available at Costco here in Utah! I hope they make it a regular item. Right now it is the only bread I am buying. I just read the ingredients and was pleased to see how it is made. My daughter in law is gluten intolerant and tried it. She said it did not make her sick because it is made with the sourdough start and not with yeast. I am excited to try your other breads and hope more of a variety will be available at Costco soon. I also hope it will be available on the east coast Costcos soon, since we have daughters living in Washington DC and New York.

      It’s really best baked or toasted before eating since it’s partially baked. You can toast it once slice at a time and keep the unbaked portion in a zip bag in the fridge, once opened.
