About A Bread Affair
A Bread Affair was conceived by a passion for great bread. Tanya Belanger, master baker, wanted to create bread with honest ingredients and phenomenal flavour. Studying under 4th generation master American baker Keith Guisto, Belanger worked to perfect her craft in the SanFrancisco area of California. In 2006, with the approval of her mentor, she opened up her own bakery in the heart of Langley with the intent to create the best bread you will ever have.
A Bread Affair is BC’s only certified organic artisan bakery and their products can be found in their Langley location, Whole Foods, Choices, Fresh St. Market, and various farmers markets in the Greater Vancouver Regional District. For exact locations, please visit www.abreadaffair.com
