BK17 Bakery was conceived in a small home kitchen on 17th Street in South Slope, Brooklyn. Sourdough is used to leaven handmade artisanal breads, cookies, scones, cakes, and even pasta. Although each recipe evokes the flavor, texture, and rustic feel of a traditional European style, BK17 breads have unique characteristics dependent on local organic and seasonal ingredients. The goal is to provide a tasty wholesome product whose extended fermentation allows for maximum flavor and easy digestion.
