Are you heading out boating, camping or to visit your favorite cabin? Thanks to our Essential FreshSeal™, you can take our artisan organic Take & Bake bread with you on any adventure you and your family decide to embark on this summer. You can bake Take & Bake in the oven, on the grill, camp fire and even toast it by the slice.

Whether you are going on a trip or entertaining at home, this simple dipping oil can make a great appetizer or a part of a full meal.  It can be drizzled or brushed on both sides of a loaf cut in half, or simply cut or tear off baked pieces of bread for dipping. You could even use it over pasta or as a salad dressing. It can be made ahead of time and packed on the go.
