The Cottage Bakery Is Now Closed!
JULY 20, 2020
A sentimental week ahead here as we prepare to close the door to this humble cottage and transition into our storefront bakery in coming weeks… This Wednesday will be our last day baking out of our home on Chestnut Ave and we can’t help but reflect on all the beautiful memories this little home served up.
Seven years ago Arturo stumbled upon his life-changing purpose to bake for the local community, a mission which eventually became Gusto Bread as you know it today. Never did we imagine the amount of support we’d receive from friends and strangers -near and far- nor did we ever conceive (as a self-taught team) that we’d be recognized as one of the Food & Wine’s list of 100 best bakeries in the nation or receive the honor of having Amy Scattergood so poetically write about our little bakery in the LA Times.
May this serve as a big, humble THANK YOU to you all for the incredible encouragement you’ve offered us throughout the last few years, helping us grow and evolve our little home operation into the bakery storefront that’s about to launch.
Baking for you all has been a gift.
Thank you for allowing us to grow and evolve into this next cycle. We are in awe as we step into the great mysterious future that lies ahead. We want nothing more than to be here and serve for years to come. When times get tough, in moments of celebration and everything in between we are committed to being here baking for you: our community.
With gusto and so much gratitude!
Arturo, Cristina, Amanda, y Ana
