Nestled in the heart of the Berkshires, Studious Baker is a company of culinary artisans that relies on common ingredients for inspiration to develop and create simple and complex, robust or subtle flavor dimensions, with just enough sweetness to bridge and uplift the ingredients to make our pastries healthy and satisfying. Ninety percent of our baking is gluten-free. Whole grain spelt and rye are our gluten grains of choice for the other pastries and breads and they are baked only of a given day when gluten-free is not baked, (there are exceptions, but not often). Special order wheat event (birthday) cakes of fine crumb are the exception to whole grain spelt and rye.
We specialize in gluten-free pastries (sweet and savory), desserts, bread, rolls, including birthday and special event cakes, made with organic and/or certified gluten-free whole grain flours and 7 different kinds of sugars. The choice of flours and sugar to use changes as we develop and create pastries as edible art and healthy sustenance. There is no one pastry better than another as every piece gets the same attention as the previous. Our pastries change weekly at the bakery, where gluten-free is not an option, it’s a standard.
