Brio Bakery

Todd Barraclough started baking in 2006 because he was searching for truly great bread. After nearly a decade his baking turned into an obsession—he attended the San Francisco Baking Institute in 2013, and again in 2015, where he learned his craft and developed his own wild yeast. In 2015, he founded Brio Bakery. Brio Bakery makes bread by hand in an Old-World artisanal style, a style used by bakers for thousands of years. They call it “pain au levain” or sometimes “sourdough,” but it isn’t like the sour-tasting San Francisco-style sourdough loaves you might have tried, in fact it isn’t sour at all. The name comes from the way the bread is leavened.

All of Brio’s bread starts with their levain, which is just flour and water that is fermented. For their signature Prairie Loaf, they just add more water, more flour, and salt to make their dough. For their other breads, they add extra ingredients, like olives or raisins. Once the dough is made, it’s folded by hand, divided, shaped and allowed to rise. Once it has risen, it is scored, quickly steamed and then baked. Altogether, the process takes between thirty and forty hours—it’s worth it when you taste it.

In addition to artisanal breads, Brio specializes in viennoiserie. Viennoiserie is a French style of baking with roots in Vienna, and includes croissants, pain au chocolate and brioche. Viennoiserie is special: the dough is folded over and over again so that when it’s baked, all the layers expand into a light, flaky treat. And, just so you know, they only use organic flour in their breads and viennoiserie.
