Rosemary Artisan Organic Bake At Home Bread Now At Costco

Our Rosemary Artisan Organic Bake At Home Bread is now available at select Costco Locations just in time to stock up for the Holiday Season!

The Essential Baking Company’s Rosemary Bread at Seattle’s 4th Ave. Costco.

 

We hand pick rosemary every day for our Artisan Organic Rosemary Bread.

It’s 100% organic, hand crafted, never frozen, preservative free and comes in an oxygen-free package that will keep your unopened bread fresh in your pantry for weeks. We partially bake the bread before packaging so you can finish the baking process in your oven at home in just 8-10 minutes!

It’s stress free bread! Pre-heat your oven to 425, remove bread from the packaging. Put bread directly on your oven rack and bake for just 8-10 minutes.

Here’s a tip: when you slice a warm loaf of bread, cut it upside down to allow the loaf to keep its shape.

 

Fresh baked bread when you want it. Always fresh, never frozen from The Essential Baking Company.

    I love your bread! Purchased it at Costco and went back to get more and they are out and not getting more in. I had them look up other locations to see if I can go to another Costco and only Los Angeles county has stock and the item seems to be going away. Where in Orange County can you buy your bread?

      Costco is the only place in Orange County where you can purchase our breads. They are probably in the process of switching from Rosemary to Sourdough Bake-At-Home. Be sure to fill out a customer comment card at your Costco location if you’d like continue to see the product available there. We will have our Bake-At-Home available for sale on our website soon as well.

        That would be great if they are just switching to sourdough. I drove to Laguna Nigel store and they had 13 left so I purchased 4. Look forward to trying sourdough.

      Oh good, glad that helped! I’ve been taking a slice at a time off a loaf this week, toasting it (longer than other slices), then putting the rest of the loaf in a zip bag and putting it in my fridge. It’s been great.

    Good convenient product at a fair price; the Rosemary has been available in Arizona for a couple months at least. ..looking forward to finding the sourdough eventually.

      Hi Mary, Costco decides which locations will carry specific products. You can make a request at your local store. I’ll look into this to see if there are plans to carry it there. Thanks for checking in.

    Can you buy the loaf – slice it – freeze it – and just pop a piece or two in a regular toaster ? i.e. (not use a toaster oven) or does it actually have to be baked?

      Absolutely! I sometimes just cut the loaf in half, bake half and put the other half in a zip-bag and freeze it. Other times, I just slice a few slices to toast in the toaster oven and put the rest in a zip-bag in the refrigerator or freeze the rest. This bread can be finished off not only in the oven but the toaster on your counter or your grill in your backyard! Give it a try and let us know how it works out, and if you come up with creative ideas of your own.

    I bought the rosemary bread at Costco a few weeks ago. It said use or freeze by the 9/10/13. I hadn’t used it yet, so I popped it in the freezer a few days ago. How should I bake it now? Do i need to let it thaw out first?

      If you think you won’t eat your Bake-At-Home by the date on the package, you can freeze the unopened package. If you open it and decide to just take a slice or two to put in your toaster, or you cut half the loaf to bake, you can freeze the unbaked portion for later as well. Pre-slicing and freezing it, then baking it in the toaster is great for “portion control” because you’re basically finishing it off a slice at a time. I’ve cut the whole think in half horizontally, made a pizza on half, and froze the other half to bake later.

    This bread is FANTASTIC! (Yes, I’m shouting…it’s that good). Relatives visiting here from the Midwest are bummed that it isn’t available there. Think I’ll pick up a few packages at our local Costco for them to take home, since it lasts so long. It’s hot here, so I conveniently baked it in my toaster oven. Came out great! Good to watch the video and find out I need to position the bread upside down for slicing.

      Thanks for writing Tacy! Great ideas to toast it in your toaster oven and to send some home with your relatives! You’ll have to try baking it on your BBQ/Grill! Simply wrap it in foil and bake on your grill or put on the top rack unwrapped even with the direct burner off while you grill the rest of your meal.

    Just had the rosemary bake at home bread for the first time and am in love! We bought at Vancouver WA Costco; however, I just called them and they are out and checked with surrounding stores and they are out too. It is truly just a seasonal item? I want to send some to family in the Southeast too; if Costco is out, do I have to drive to Seattle to get some???

        Hi Lisa,
        Our Costco locations have been expanding. You can try filling out a customer comment card there, asking for them to carry our products in the store near you. We will also be launching an on-line store by the new year and you will be able to get our Bake-At-Home and Gluten Free products.

      Our Bake At Home bread is able to stay fresh unopened for weeks thanks to our patent pending packaging process. Designed to be oxygen free and hold in freshness without preservatives and never needs to be frozen while unopened. All you need is to bake it for 8-10 minutes to enjoy organic fresh baked bread, right out of your oven.

        Does it hurt the bread to be frozen? It says on the label you can freeze it, which we did, and now it doesn’t seem to be baking correctly.

    The Rosemary bread at Costco doesn’t list YEAST under the ingredients which tells me there is no YEAST in this product. Is this correct? Patty Irish

      Hi Patty- Thanks for your question. There is no added commercial yeast in many of our breads, including the Rosemary. Staying true to tradition,we leaven many of our breads with one (or more) of five natural starters that we cultivate (ferment) here in the bakery from flour and water. These starters are live cultures of complex microbiological systems, including yeasts and lactobacilli, which leaven and impart unique flavors to the bread. As far as labeling goes, these microbes are not an “ingredient”, and so do not need to be listed on the ingredient statement. Obviously the flour and water used in the starters are ingredients and are included in the ingredient statement. As far as various dietary limitations go, this has been a debate for many years- the thing to remember here is that the culture is totally killed in the oven- there is no live yeast or any other microbes in a baked loaf of bread. If dietary limitations are a concern, you can consult with your physician, and provide the information in this post.
