Kashew Bakery was formed out of our passion for artisan baking
and a deep belief in the ethical treatment of all animals.
Our desire is to show the world that quality, taste, and absolutely deliciously baked goods are never compromised when love and compassion is at the heart of our creations.
PETER WEGMANN, MASTER BREAD BAKER & OWNER
Peter began his career over 30 years ago at Technische Universität Kaiserslautern in Germany,
where he obtained his Master Bakers degree
You can tell within minutes of talking to Peter that he is absolutely consumed by passion
(obsessed) with artisan bread... it's the reason he gets out of bed every morning (often bellowing, "Boomshakalaka, I'm feeling this, baby!"), nearly startling anyone within earshot distance. Given the slightest window, you will witness the light in his eyes, smile on his lips, and hear the pure excitement in his voice as he speaks about the history, process and methods, product qualities, etc. of breads and baking.
Transitioning to a compassionate, vegan lifestyle motivated Peter to create plant-based artisan baking recipes, bringing all his love, knowledge, experience, skills and excitement for traditional European baking to the vegan world.
