Handmade Authentic Ethnic Breads from NYC
Hot Bread Kitchen

Get ready for your heart to melt like a slab of butter on a crusty slice of sourdough because the Hot Bread Kitchen story goes beyond the loaves that are pulled from this East Harlem hearth. HBK bakes over 75 multiethnic breads inspired by the women who bake them. At this nonprofit bakery, low income, minority and immigrant women handcraft traditional breads from across the globe. Think of it as the United Nations of Bread. Jessamyn Rodriguez (HBK’s Secreta-rye-General) started the nonprofit in 2007 from her Brooklyn walk up, training with Daniel Boulud to help women become—quite literally—their own breadwinners.

It’s just about the greatest thing in bread innovation since, well… you know.

We're not the only ones who love them!

Hot Bread Kitchen has been featured in The New York Times, Bon Appétit, Glamour and was named The Village Voice's Best Bakery in 2015. The bakery was also on the Today Show, NPR, Eater, ABC's The Chew, PBS Newshour and The Martha Stewart Show.
