1. Our flours are organic and milled especially for us in France.
2. Some menu items will not be available from time to time. This is the nature of using fresh ingredients in Senegal.
3. Meats, vegetables and cheeses are sourced locally when possible. Frozen and canned foods are never used.
4. For orders of 5 pizzas or more, please call 24 hours ahead.
5. Lunch orders accepted for 7 pizzas or more with 48 hours advanced notice.
6. Due to the natural antimicrobial properties of sourdough, our pizzas can be reheated by oven (not microwave!) for up to 2 days and still taste good
(assuming you liked it the first day).

Special orders available for larger quantities.

We leaven our breads with wild yeast (levain) to unlock the nutrients within whole grains. Our breads feature a substantial crust and a moist crumb; we aim to balance sweet, salty, sour and bitter flavors. Each bread should last up to 6 days, provided they are kept in a breathable enclosure (e.g. paper bag, or optimally a locally woven basket). DO NOT REFRIGERATE OR PUT IN A PLASTIC BAG. If you would like to save your bread for additional time, try slicing it first and then freezing it inside a plastic bag.

In the coming weeks, we will be featuring the following breads:
Sprouted Einkorn (petit épeautre), Kamut, our House Bread (made with
whole grain Kamut, Spelt, Wheat, and Rye), and Wheat Bread with oat porridge.

Special note/apology to Celiac sufferers: Although our breads are naturally low in glutens, we will not be making gluten-free breads.



    • Hi Dirka

      You can call Sam for information and directions. (His phone number is listed in the post.) He makes bread on certain days, so you’d need to work out a pick-up time if you don’t live in the delivery areas.


  1. does sam still make the bread and is interested in selling it? I have been trying to call him for several weeks and the phone was always turned off. also, email did not work. I even bought a nice “brotschneidemaschine” in germany and now I have no bread to cut with it 😦
