Established in 1996, Truckee Sourdough Company is an artisan bakery located in the small Sierra mountain town of Truckee, California near the California/Nevada border.
The bakery supplies crusty sourdough and other breads to markets and restaurants in the Reno, Carson, Lake Tahoe, Sacramento and California Central Valley and North Eastern regions.
Truckee Sourdough is a natural Artisan Bread. It is made using only freshly milled unbleached flour, sea salt and water. The sourdough breads are leavened using a sour culture derived from the naturally occurring wild yeasts present in the Truckee area.
The Ciabatta bread is leavened using commercial yeast in the Italian tradition. No oils, fats, preservatives, dough conditioners or artificial souring acids are used. The long, slow process used to prepare Truckee Sourdoughs creates the rich flavors and textures of traditionally leavened bread.
Unlike high volume modern-day bakeries where machines process the breads in their entirety to produce perfect duplicates of one another, Truckee Sourdough breads are hand finished giving each loaf it's own delightfully uneven shape, irregular internal crumb and color.
The loaves are slowly baked to create rich, thick crusted country breads reminiscent of times long ago.
Online orders are baked and shipped the same day every Monday via USPS Priority Mail.
