BORN IN ARGENTINA, MADE IN OAKLAND
Wooden Table Baking Co. is an Oakland-based bakery, dedicated to crafting the finest Argentine treats. We live in Oakland, we work in Oakland and we invest in Oakland. Yes, we’ve got some Oakland pride going. That’s why we use brethren local suppliers whenever possible: Guittard Chocolate (Burlingame), Challenge Butter (Dublin), Due Torri Coffee (Oakland), and Guisto Flour (South San Francisco). Community tastes good too. Wooden Table Baking is a proud member of the following organizations:
Our recipes are based Andreas’ grandmother’s recipes. We honor her and Argentine tradition by baking our cookies from scratch using all natural ingredients. Real butter, eggs, milk and sugar, just like grandma did. Instead of using “natural flavorings,” we use actual vanilla, peppermint oil, cinnamon, 64% dark chocolate and lemon extract, because real ingredients translate into yummier cookies. We make our products without preservatives, because fresh is just how grandma rolled.
Wooden Table is owned and operated by the dynamic duo and couple - Andreas and Citabria Ozzuna. Our head baker, Andreas, grew up outside of Buenos Aires and learned to cook from their grandmother. “It is from her that I inherited my love of cooking. I remember being next to her at our wooden table making raviolis, gnochi, tarts every weekend! A whole spoonful of dulce de leche in my mouth as a reward when she wasn’t looking.”
We named our company after this shared wooden table - to honor the heritage on which our company’s recipes are founded as well as the shared experience of cooking and eating that fosters love and community.
