Fall is here and the nights are getting cooler (thank goodness!). Comfort food like warm bread and hot soups & stews are re-emerging on dinner tables across the southland (after a long hot summer’s nap!). And what better bread to grace your table than our Organic, Gluten-Neutral, Lectin-Free sourdough loaves (Vegan, too!).

Bread like this deserves the best butter as well, which is why we carry Organic Pastures/Raw Farm Butter along with Nutiva Organic Vegan Butter. And for those inclined to make a complete meal out of Breadness itself, we have Clif Family Solar Grown Honey Spreads, Laura Ann’s Artisan Jams, NuttZo Keto Crunch Nut/Seed Butter, and Beyond the Olive Tapenades & Condiments available for purchase on line, as well.

But what if you’re the “Shots & Sourdough” type? We’ve got you covered there with Ojai Olive Oil Company Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oils and Balsamic Vinegars from Ojai Olive Oil, Ritrovo Selections and Beyond the Olive.

Perhaps the most joy comes from giving a Random Act of Breadness to someone special! In addition to the above items, our Designer Cutting Boards, Top-Rated Bread Knifes, 100% Cotton Breadness Tea Towels and our Breadness Eco-friendly Totes are available to make your custom Breadness Bundle unique. All of these can be found at our bakery and in our Online Shop.

And if you just can’t decide what to give, we have our Random Acts of Breadness Gift Card!

Enjoy your stroll down the aisles of delectable delights offered here! We wish we could send the smell of baking bread to your screen, but in lieu of that, you’re welcome to come by the bakery during our public hours ~ Friday & Saturday 12 to 6p and Sunday 10a to 2p ~ and take a few sniffs in person…

ORGANIC ARTISAN SOURDOUGH BREADS

ORGANIC PASTURES RAW FARM BUTTERS

CLIF FAMILY SOLAR GROWN HONEY SPREADS

When we first tasted these honeys from Clif Family in Napa, California, we knew we had to make them available to our Breadness customers. Breadness and butter are a match made in heaven; adding a just a bit of this honey into the mix turns Breadness into a unique treat! We also like that this honey is Solar Grown™ which means the honey production operation runs entirely on solar power. Good for you, good for the environment! Available in three flavors: Cinnamon, Ginger and Cacao. Words can hardly convey the intensity of these flavors; you need to come to the bakery and taste a sample for yourself! Or, be daring and order one or more flavors and experience the surprise we experienced when first tasting these bold honey blends!

LAURA ANN’S JAMS

Breadness is the foundation upon which delicious ideas can be built. In addition to our Organic Pastures butters and Clif Family Solar-Grown Honey spreads, we’re excited to feature a local artisan line of fruit-based toppings on our shelves in the form of Laura Ann’s Jams. Laura Ann has created about 20 “jamazing” flavors that you just have to taste to believe. Five of her flavors are named “Lo-Fi” because they contain no added sugar; sweetened only with grape juice concentrate. Free tastes available at the bakery, or order based on the descriptions found on each page. One thing we know for sure, these jams sell out almost as fast as we can put them on the shelf! (Note: Some flavors are seasonal so this selection will vary depending on availability.)

NUTTZO NUT & SEED BUTTER

Everybody loves Peanut Butter & Jelly sandwiches, right? Well, yes and no. As tasty as this combination may sound, and especially with a slice or two of Random Acts of Breadness Artisan Country Loaf or Cinnamon Raisin Maple Pecan sourdough bread, many people cannot tolerate peanuts/peanut butter. And with the publication of Dr. Steven Gundry’s groundbreaking book, The Plant Paradox, he explains the reasons peanuts (and cashews) should be avoided. So when we became aware of a nut/seed butter that didn’t contain peanuts or cashews, we were interested to try it out!
(Click/Tap the NuttZo jar for ingredients and other info…)

ORGANIC EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OILS

Although Breadness is a treat all by itself, when you add butter, avocado, honey, jam, or extra virgin olive oil with a splash of balsamic vinegar, the experience goes to a whole nother level! We take pride in carrying Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oils and Aged Balsamic Vinegars from Ritrovo Selections, Ojai Olive Oil Company, and Beyond the Olive. Peruse our premium selection and click/tap to learn more about these fine gourmet offerings. If you’re in the Burbank area, come by the bakery Friday, Saturday or Sunday and ask to sample the products that interest you.

BALSAMIC VINEGARS

TAPENADES & CONDIMENTS

The newest addition to our collection of gourmet items that complement Breadness are three Tapenades and a Muffuletta from the kitchens of Beyond the Olive in Pasadena. A Tapenade is a Provençal name for a spread, condiment and culinary ingredient consisting of puréed or finely chopped olives, capers, and anchovies. Its name comes from the Provençal word for capers, tapenas. It is a popular food in the south of France, where it is generally eaten as an hors d’œuvre spread on bread, with fish, in salads, and sometimes used to stuff poultry for a main course.

The Story of Random Acts of Breadness

Random Acts of Breadness was never intended to be a business.

That was the furthest thing from his mind when award-winning composer / songwriter / producer / engineer Randall Michael Tobin thought to himself in late November 2016:

“I wonder if I could make sourdough bread?”

“If it turns out alright, I could give it to family and friends for the holidays.”

What made this highly unusual is that although Randall enjoyed cooking, he had never made bread before! But by mid December, he had found the right combination of ingredients, the right process, and had the right tools to begin this unpredictable journey.

The result was pretty darn good, but the reactions from those on the receiving end of these “random acts of breadness” were off the charts! One-for-one each gift recipient stated, “This is the best bread I’ve ever had!” So Randall kept making, baking and giving his bread away—holidays or special occasions not required!

His wife, Cyndie, created unique presentation designs with various tea towels, ribbons and ornaments. She also bought the first organic bamboo cutting boards to form the foundation of the gifts. And one never knew when Randall was going to show up randomly with a “random act of breadness” in hand, ringing their doorbell!

This activity had been going on for a few years when people started demanding to buy the bread! They didn’t want to wait for a random act of breadness. They wanted bread NOW! Randall had to politely decline their requests as he didn’t have a permit to make and sell bread, and obtaining a Cottage Industry Permit would have limited his ability to make and sell other food items he was developing.

So Randall came up with a solution: continue to give breadness, and let the recipient know that they could leave a tip if they so desired (there was no law against that!). The tips were commensurate with what the bread would have sold for, but by no means covered the actual cost of making the bread, which takes three days and a lot of labor (and love) to make. Still, the tips helped with ingredient costs and the requests for breadness kept coming.

During this time, Randall came up with the idea of branding this activity as Random Acts of Breadness and proceeded to search for domain names. The first name he searched for was Breadness.com and, as if angels were guiding this journey, it was available! Randall registered that name, along with .net and .org variations, and also registered the full-name versions (randomactsofbreadness.com, etc.).

Once the domain names were in place, Randall, who is also a professional website designer, created this site, which has evolved to the form you are experiencing right now. And the bread gifts, which became the stuff of legend, are now available right here!

Take a look at our Breadness Collection of unique gifts ranging from Basic to Bountiful to the Breadness RockStar! 

Now, you, too, can surprise that special someone (or someones!) by gifting them a Random Act of Breadness!

And once you do, your life will never be the same…
