Since the age of 16, like so many of us in the space Lauren Ritiche has been in the hospitality space but it wasn’t always in the kitchen. Starting out and then spending most of her time in the front of the restaurant she had a knack for working with the public yet she was always drawn to the buzz of the kitchen.
Lauren’s interest took her down the path of pastries and that has lead to the seamless segway into bread, which I have to admit Lauren does exceptionally well. Lauren like most makers, and artists, takes a sincere interest in the production of her breads and that interest turns into a pretty phenomenal product.
While Ritchies Bakery is a farmers market vendor at the moment, don’t be surprised if you see Lauren rubbing elbows with some pretty epic company through her growth. The likes of the dynamic team from Flourist and the newest addition to the physical bakery address scene, Claire Livia as there’s no doubt Lauren is set along the same path of these other incredible local female lead businesses who just happen to make phenomenal bread.
Lauren shares a lot on this podcast and I know you will all enjoy it. If you’re local be sure to reach out to Lauren and get some of her awesome products as soon as you can!
