“In Chile, fresh bread is part of everyday life, it’s involved in every meal and get-together” - Javiera.
Long story short...
Our Chilean heritage and bread tradition got us to move from a comfy corporate world into the bread baking craft. We realized that our love for bread should have a bigger role on our lives, for this, we had to break out of our molds and take a chance, so in 2017, we decided to sell everything, get on a plane, and move to Pennsylvania, USA.
Today, we decided to start Vituperio - a non traditional bakery experience - to share this love for bread with you, and to help everyone learn what made from scratch bread is all about.
For us bread is a revolution that is just starting, therefore we invite you to come and experience what authentic bread is supposed to taste, smell, and feel like.
Our goal is to have a fun and a hands on approach to baking, it’s about letting go of all preconceptions about this amazing and nutritious food so that we can bring together this old craft back to life!
