About Us

Amateurs of breads will love that we try to use only the essential and the best ingredients to make our baked goods. We take every precaution to attend to allergies such as Nuts and Gluten Free allergies. The story begins with the owner Josée who has more than 20 years of experience has a seasoned business manager for American Companies while cultivating for the past 15 years her passion for making bread and learning the art with French Bakers in Montreal. While learning, she stumbled upon this fantastic French Baker and his wife with whom a strong connection developed over time. After many months of discussions, it was agreed that Josée would continue their business and move it to Toronto.

In recent years Josée developed a gluten allergy and struggled to find quality and tasteful bakery and pastry products, a motivation to work at improving current offering. Don't be surprised to see some ingredients, products and workshops addressing the gluten free market.

As of July 30th, 2019 The Bread Essentials will become The Gluten Free Essentials therefore moving forward with the separation of our current bakery. For the time being the Traditional Artisan Breads will be eliminated to make place entirely to our growing Gluten Free Baked Goods selection therefore totally eliminating the potential of cross-contamination. This will allow us to develop our offerings and work towards attaining the Celiac certification. This doesn’t mean we forget about Traditional Artisan Breads and Baked Goods as we are taking a step back to hopefully better move forward in the near future with a separate location that would be entirely dedicated to Traditional Artisan Breads and Baked Goods. We strongly believe that the future looks very promising.

Come and join us, whether to find a missing tool or accessory, GF flours and other vital ingredients to make your GF Goods at home or to participate in one of the workshop.

We look forward to see you!
