Spotlight on KAMUT® Brand Khorasan Wheat User: European Breads Bakery

Bread has been a diet staple for centuries and for the most of history, bakers mixed and baked dough by hand. However, since the industrial revolution, larger and larger food companies make bread in automated factories using methods that maximize efficiency by speeding up natural fermenting processes with artificial ingredients. Food processors strive to maximize shelf life while trying to minimize costs using the cheapest mass-produced commodity flour available. Uniform, machine produced breads, full of preservatives and artificial leavening and conditioning ingredients line the shelves of supermarkets and corner stores.

In 2001, Otari Kobalia opened European Breads Bakery to bring artisan bread, made using time honored methods perfected in the Eurasian Caucasus region to Vancouver. European Breads commits to using a variety of organic grains like KAMUT® wheat, barley, rye, spelt, and grain alternatives like buckwheat, amaranth, quinoa and chia, to bake traditional, European-style breads. The locally owned bakery strives to use only local and premium quality natural and organic ingredients in their recipes to ensure delicious and healthy products.

European Breads Bakery features artisan 
breads and other baked treats like poppy seed buns and baklava that embody a rich Georgian baking heritage. Kobalia, an immigrant from Georgia to Canada in 1996, used recipes that had been developed over centuries and had been passed down through generations. All European Breads’ products are made by hand and do not have any added chemicals or conditioners. The bakers use stoneground flour from Anita's Certified Organic Flour Mill and all of their breads are dairy free. European Breads also has a variety of gluten free and yeast free breads for customers looking for them.

Kobalia believed that making bread is not about following an exact recipe, but instead about honoring the traditions of artisan baking. European Breads’ bakers use their expertise, honed by years of experience, to mix ingredients, test dough fermentation, to knead, mold, and shape the 
breads. Their trained eyes and sensitive noses know exactly when the bread is just right to come out of the oven. European Breads Bakery has been a KAMUT® licensee since 2011. Customers praise their yeast-free KAMUT® wheat loaf for its taste and texture, not to mention the health benefits of eating organic KAMUT® brand khorasan wheat.

Now operated by Anton Makaryevskiy, Kobalia’s tradition continues. Residents of Vancouver know European Breads Bakery for their intense, earthy flavors, crunchy crusts, and complex texture. Located on Fraser Street in East Vancouver, European Breads Bakery distributes its products to finer grocery stores and markets in the greater Vancouver area, as well as in select stores in Washington State.
