Once upon a time, when we were still a budding bakery in Truckee, CA, we ordered an oven. Now, this was not just any ordinary oven. This was a special oven that is only made in France.
The French Oven Builders were very happy to send us a special oven! They built it and put it on a ship (it was too heavy to travel by plane) and off it sailed on its way to California!
Somewhere in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean something happened - and the boat sank! So did our special oven...
No one was hurt, but the French Oven Builders had to build us a new special oven. They put it on another ship and off it sailed - on its way to California! It's been here ever since, happily baking delicious artisan breads in the mountains of Truckee, just for you!
We get asked all the time if our bread can be frozen. The answer is absolutely!
Freezing is easy. Make sure your Truckee Sourdough loaf is sealed in an air-tight plastic bag before putting in the freezer. Then follow these "Inside The Bag - Freezing Tips" and you'll be eating fresh Truckee Sourdough days after you bought it!
There are many different reasons why you don't buy food from a Ski Resort. Maybe you got lost in the back country. Maybe your wallet dropped out of your snowpants while shredding that gnar pow line. Or maybe you just didn't want to lose your place in line to get on the chairlift. Reasons don't matter. Here at Truckee Sourdough we think it is very important to eat well while playing in the snow. So we've compiled our five favorite sandwiches to bring on a chair lift!

Thanksgiving is one of our favorite holidays for one simple reason: it’s the only holiday that revolves around family, friends and eating so much you have to unbutton your pants. With a table filled to the brim with turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, pie…most people over look one of the most important parts of the Thanksgiving feast– the bread basket!
So how do you choose which bread to serve? Well, first....
