Rustic Bakery gives traditional shortbread a bittersweet twist. Made with chocolate and cacao nibs, these shortbread cookies have a rich, chocolatey flavor, while the addition of fleur de sel (sea salt) prevents them from being cloyingly sweet. Pair with Highwire coffee or your favorite cup of Mariage Frères tea.
About the producer
Carol LeValley and Josh Harris had been baking sourdough crackers in their home kitchen for years, but it wasn’t until the pair reached out to local Bay Area cheese artisans that the business started to take shape. In 2005, their first client was famed Cowgirl Creamery and ever since, Rustic Bakery has remained the preeminent choice for cheese shops and restaurants in the Bay Area and beyond.
