La Brea Bakery is Helping Americans Come Together and “Break Bread” this Summer with the Launch of the Cross-Country Breaking Bread Food Truck Tour

LOS ANGELES  – With today’s on-the-go lifestyle demanding more time from professionals, many are conflicted between staying plugged in and giving loved ones the undivided attention they deserve. La Brea Bakery, the nation’s top artisan bread brand, is seeking to remedy this challenge through the Breaking Bread Tour by providing consumers with a reason to slow down and embrace quality time with friends and family with the help of delicious artisan foods. In a new survey conducted by La Brea Bakery, 92 percent of Americans claim “breaking bread,” or eating a meal with others, provides a great opportunity to catch up with friends and family.

Starting July 30, 2015, La Brea Bakery is kicking off the Breaking Bread Tour, reminding foodies that nothing brings family and friends together like a quality meal. Americans often find it difficult to eat regular dinners with family and break away from technology during meals; only one-in-three (33 percent) say they are able to eat dinner around the table with their family without distractions. By bringing top-of-the-line artisan creations to cities across the country, La Brea Bakery will give Americans fresh recipes ideas to spark creativity in the kitchen and provide opportunities to connect over bread.

“At La Brea Bakery, we are committed to high quality ingredients to ensure only the finest breads and foods for our customers” said Jon Davis, Senior Vice President of Culinary Research and Innovation at La Brea Bakery. “We’ve always known bread is more than just food, it’s a part of traditions and connects loved ones and communities, which is exactly what we’re doing with the Breaking Bread Tour.”

La Brea Bakery aims to spread their love for quality ingredients and inspired recipes through the Breaking Bread Tour to bring artisan flare and foods across the country. During the Tour, the La Brea Bakery Food Truck will be stopping at various community events and grocery store partners, providing attendees with samples of La Brea Bakery breads, culinary creations, along with special offers.  The city stops along the cross-country Tour include:

  • Los Angeles July 30 – August 3
  • San Francisco August 7 – August 9
  • Seattle August 13 – August 16
  • Charlotte, N.C. August 28 – August 30
  • Washington, D.C. September 3 – September 6
  • New York September 10 – September 13
  • Philadelphia September 16 – September 17
  • Boston September 19 – September 20

With nearly three in four (71 percent) foodies claiming that a good meal always includes bread, La Brea Bakery is excited to give consumers new, innovative options to incorporate the hearty meal staple into their daily lives. During the Tour, an assortment of inspired artisan recipes highlighting La Brea Bakery breads will be sampled, including Seedless Raspberry Jam and Almond Butter on a French Baguette, Salami, Sriracha Aioli and Pepper Jack Cheese on Rosemary Olive Oil bread, and Tomato Herb Bruschetta atop a Tuscan Loaf. The recipes will feature ingredients from artisan partners, including cheese from Tillamook Cheese, jams and spreads provided by Stonewall Kitchen, and a variety of nut butters created by Justin’s.

When ranking top considerations for exceptional bread, consumers share the same values as La Brea Bakery, ranking high quality ingredients and delicious crust as top priorities. With a dedication to artisan tradition for more than 25 years, and pure ingredients in all 200 varieties of foods and breads, La Brea Bakery proudly offers a multitude of options, including dinner and telera rolls, baguettes and batards, ciabatta, focaccia, flatbreads, loaves, rounds, ovals, sandwich rolls, sliced artisan sandwich breads and Take & Bake breads. La Brea Bakery breads and foods can be found at grocery stores across the country.
