Kim Tavino has always loved to bake and has fond memories of baking with her mother as a little girl. The idea for healthy bread came to her during Christmas time when she always made gifts for her fitness clients. The challenge was to make a tasty, healthy alternative to the overly processed and packaged breads that fill grocery store shelves.
After much trial and error, two of her recipes — Honey Wheat and Cinnamon Cranberry — seemed to please everyone’s palate. Her clients said they tasted so good and they all said they would love to order some loaves. Before long, Sprout Momma’s Breads grew and she needed help with production and enlisted the best chef she knew — her son, Ryan.
At first he helped man the booths at local farmers markets and get out the product. Today, Ryan experiments with his own recipes — always including fresh ingredients with healthy benefits. He bakes breads from Kim’s old recipes as well as very complex 24- to 48-hour fermented doughs, English Muffins, Ciabatta, and more! Kim and Ryan sprout all kinds of grains and create Old World European breads that are what bread is supposed to be — healthful and flavorful.
