It's me, Stella. I am the lady that bakes every single loaf of STELLA bread! STELLA Bakery is a one person show so you will find me doing a lot of other things besides baking bread. Answering your e-mails, driving around delivering your bread, creating this website, accounting, taking pictures of my breads...
I started STELLA Bakery in 2011 at Mono Lake in Eastern California and in 2015 when my husband and I moved to Bozeman, MT the bakery went with us! I have apprenticed in bakeries in Germany, California and Virginia but most of my learning occurred in my home kitchen through hundreds of test bakes, detailed note keeping and lots of tasting.
You love homemade bread but are too busy to bake?
That's where I come in! I grew up in Germany in a family passionate about high quality, local and great tasting food and I can not imagine being without delicious bread on the table. I do understand that it takes a lot of time and passion to make your own bread, but that's where I can help. I try to recreate the breads I ate growing up and these breads are what I love sharing with people that crave homemade bread but are too busy to bake it themselves. Sound like you? Find me and my breads here.
