Bread Baker

Bellegarde Bakery in New Orleans is the Gulf South’s premier bread bakery. We are the only bakery in the region that uses a stone mill to create fresh, whole-grain flour. We source organic, identity- preserved (IP) grains for our mill, which was custom built by Elmore Mountain Bakery in Vermont. We use patient, time-honed traditions in our process, creating breads for both restaurants and markets. Our methods are performed by hand, and every employee learns every aspect of the business:  from baking and milling, to shaping and mixing.

Salary positions work four, physical days per week. Every employee has one weekend day off. Work begins at 4:30 a.m. and finishes in the early afternoon. Three days off creates an environment for employees to refresh, refocus, and return to the bakery with alacrity and care, giving the task at hand full attention and respect. The inspiration of New Orleans—its culture, cuisine, and history—incessantly informs our baking and our journey as we change the way our region sits down to dinner.

The ability to lift 50 pounds and the desire to put in exactly what you want back is required. Professional kitchen experience is imperative.

Bread Baker

Della Fattoria is an award-winning bakery in Petaluma, CA, just north of San Francisco. We have baked organic, naturally leavened breads in wood-fired ovens at the family ranch for over 20 years.  Our amazing bakers love what they do; we just need a few more.

This is a great opportunity to expand your knowledge of bread baking. We love to teach, but there are a few requirements.

1. You must be a team player.  You need to be the kind of person who understands that packing bread is as important as baking it, and when the floor needs sweeping you pick up a broom. You must be able to work with a sense of urgency. The ovens are hot, and the dough is moving.

2. You must be the kind of person for whom excellence is the only acceptable standard. Being proud of what you do is as important as being paid to do it.

3. You must be willing to give your body a workout. The way we bake is athletic, and you need to be able to lift 50 pounds.

4. You must understand that the bread is the boss, attitude is everything. Dough is a living, breathing thing that needs to be interpreted and managed. We’re looking for passionate bakers who want to engage in the process and fully commit to our craft.

Interested parties, please reply. You will not be judged by the art of resume writing but by your experience, authenticity, and enthusiasm

I’m looking forward to hearing from you.
