ARTISAN BREADS & BREAKFAST PASTRIES

MADE BY HAND, FROM SCRATCH

Sean O’Mahony has always been passionate about bread baking. At one time, 90% of the bread eaten in the city was made by local bakers, with baking techniques consisting of long fermentations of more than 12 hours.

After studying the history of breads in New Orleans, he wanted to bring back to Old World French breads and baking style to the city. Sean learned the art of bread baking by studying under Master Bakers and World Champions at the French Pastry School, graduating with honors.

As it was 100 years ago, Sean wants to make New Orleans the greatest bread city in America. Open June 29, 2012, Sean and his wife and New Orleanian, Chamain, opened Breads On Oak. Come by and taste what real bread used to taste like!
