  • Gregory Berger

    Gregory Berger was a full-time, stay-at-home dad running his own successful company when he was first inspired to make bread. Between diaper changes and the graphic design work he does for restaurants and nonprofits through his company, Pomegranate Design, Greg read a book about sourdough bread. He baked one loaf and it sparked a passion. Greg has earned blue ribbons four years in a row at the California State Fair. He now creates original bread recipes for some of the top restaurants in Northern California. Greg is also well known for baking buns and rolls for charity events that draw thousands, including the Sacramento Burger Battle and the Sacramento Sausage Fest. If you ask nicely, he'll probably make you a loaf.
