Valley News Reader's Choice Award 2019

The King Arthur Bakery offers premier artisan bread, pastries, cakes, cookies, pies, and creative seasonal specialties using local products at our Baker's Store® in Norwich, Vermont. We bake with a minimum amount of mechanization, preferring instead to rely on traditional methods: our hands, our skill, and top-quality ingredients.

Storage tips

Our breads taste great on the day they're made; handle them properly, and you can enjoy them for several days.

Store a baguette at room temperature, in its paper bag, for up to 1 day. For longer storage, wrap loosely in plastic. To restore its crisp crunch, reheat baguette in a 350°F oven for 5 to 10 minutes, tented loosely with foil, just before serving.

Store soft sandwich bread or rolls at room temperature, wrapped in a plastic bag, for 4 to 5 days.

Store sourdough or a dense country loaf at room temperature, in the bag in which it was purchased. Once cut, place the bread in the bag sliced-side down. After a day or two, slip the bread into a plastic bag. This will help preserve its moisture, though the crust will soften.

Never refrigerate bread; it makes it go stale very quickly. For long storage, wrap bread very well in plastic, and freeze for up to 3 months. To serve, thaw at room temperature, remove it from the bag and reheat in a 425°F oven for about 5 minutes.
