Our Vision

Edgar Loesch, the founder of Fressen, started his baking experience in the guild system in Bavaria Germany. Upon moving to the States he worked as a baker and pastry chef in Northern California, an area dominated by sourdough white breads. Noticing the lack of whole grain and European-style ryes, he started baking his favorite breads for local farmers markets. Now Fressen has grown into a thriving café and wholesale bakery, following Edgar's vision of creating modern masterpieces with traditional methods.
