Carol LeValley & Josh Harris started Rustic Bakery on a whim in 2005. The couple found their passion for baking in a simple sourdough flatbread cracker that Carol would whip up for friends. They stopped at the San Francisco Ferry Building outlet of Cowgirl Creamery, and mentioned to owners Sue Conley and Peggy Smith that the cheeses deserved artisan crackers. The Cowgirls bit, literally, into a sourdough flatbread and immediately placed an order for 50 cases.A cracker is simply flour, water, and salt. the secret is time. The crackers rise slowly, and ferment like bread. The flavors specifically complement cheese. Ingredients remain strictly local, organic when possible as well as globally sourced. The business has grown since 2005, to include delicious artisan crisps, additional flavors of Flatbreads, and Flatbread bites. A special selection is available by preorder for Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. All with the ingredient of time and all a compliment to cheese.
