Smokebread Comes to the Bay Area!

We’ve got sweet, smoky news for you, Bay Area!

We’ve partnered with chef Nick Balla of Bar Tartine, Duna, and Smokebread to offer you a one-of-a-kind bread in your next box! You can now get chef Balla’s signature smoked potato sourdough bread (a delicious mouthful indeed) delivered to your door!

This bread, made with our ugly potatoes, is one-of-a-kind. The texture of the potatoes makes the bread extra tender, while the slight smokiness makes the bread extra savory, almost meaty in flavor. It also happens to pair with everything. Our staff favorites dipping companions were hummus and roasted red pepper dip.

We’ll be offering limited quantities in our Bay Area boxes, so be sure to customize early so you don’t miss out on the chance to try a loaf.

Down the road, you can expect more delicious breads from Nick, starring different Imperfect produce like zucchini, onions, winter squash and more. We are also working to partner with him on more upcycled veggie product like spreads, dips, and fruit butters.

In the meantime, be sure to try a loaf of this amazing bread and let us know what you think. You can also check out Nick’s delicious food at his Smokebread pop up on Market Street in San Francisco. Cheers to wasting less food and enjoying more delicious bread!

    Don’t see it! Is it sold out? Or coming next week?

      Round one sold out very fast due to its popularity. Keep an eye out for more the next time you customize and try to customize quickly as each batch is relatively small.

      Hey Linda,
      Our first batch sold out very quickly. There will be more available the next time you customize your box, but Nick makes these in limited quantities, so try to customize early if you can!
