Rob Brigati’s passion for bread started at a young age. His grandmother, who lived on the family farm, would make breads at home and sell them fresh from her kitchen. The variety of flavors she produced was modest, but the consistent quality of every loaf was a testament to her skill. Rich, moist, and delicious, one slice was never enough. It was through his grandmother’s example that Rob gained an appreciation for the art of bread making and a taste of the flavorful possibilities.
Today, Rob continues the Banana Breads tradition of handmade breads by building upon what his grandmother did so well. The process and attention to detail remain the same, but the scale has significantly widened. Over 30 varieties of breads and pound cakes, and counting, are now sold every day at White Post Farms. The list continues to grow because Rob, who studied at the Culinary Institute of America, is constantly looking to meet and exceed the demands of his customers. When they suggest new flavor combinations, he and his staff listen. Every new bread or pound cake is the result of endless hours spent in the kitchen mixing ingredients, taste testing, and perfecting recipes. Anything less than excellent is scratched because Rob believes in making and serving only the best. A lofty ambition? Perhaps. But Rob would have it no other way, and his customers have come to expect nothing less.
