Our Artisan Home Bakery
BROT is the German word for BREAD.
Our breads are inspired by traditional European sourdough cultures mixed with new ideas from bread artisans around the world. We use organic, stone-ground flour and natural sourdough starter for a flavorful, healthy and longer-lasting bread. Hand-crafted to order, baked in our home kitchen, our breads provide a glimpse into the next level of bread baking.
Our bakery is a CT licensed Cottage Food Operation located in Killingworth, CT. We bake orders on demand in our home kitchen for curb side pick-up on Saturdays and Sundays.

I was born and grew up in Germany, where fresh sourdough bread is not just a daily staple- it is truly a part of everyday life. Many towns, villages, and neighborhoods have bread bakers who make traditional loaves from locally derived ingredients. Each town and region has a distinctive flavor and texture.
When I moved to the US I could not find the authentic German bread that I had grown to love. So, I started baking bread. A lot of bread. And not all of it was good.
I was fortunate to have met another German expat who lives near me and we became bread enthusiasts- experimenting with different recipes and types of flour During these early years I learned that sourdough combines craft, science, and passion.
I am influenced and inspired by a global community of artisan bread bakers and have been lucky enough to have received formal training from some of them.
Bread Baking is my passion- and I truly enjoy teaching others how to bake hand-crafted bread in their own kitchens. That is why I call this experiment, BROTworkshop.
