About the Company:
Our founder, George DePasquale, plays a vibrant role at The Essential Baking Company. His passion for excellent bread stems from his childhood in New York where he frequently baked with his mom. At the age of 18, he moved to San Francisco to further develop his baking skills and learned about wild yeast and the important role it plays in giving artisan bread its deep, complex flavor. Twenty years later he moved to Seattle and opened The Essential Baking Company, where he continues to hone his skills in the bakery every day. Now located in the Georgetown neighborhood of Seattle, the company has expanded to include a gluten free bread line made in a dedicated bakery.
