Wild Yeast Kitchen
Cottage Food Business
- Montgomery, AL
Artisan bread baking tradition in the heart of Alabama
Wild Yeast Kitchen, is a cottage food bakery established in June of 2016. The bakery focuses on traditional methods of artisan bread making. It offers bread subscriptions, online ordering, and sells at the Montgomery Curb Market – a historic landmark.
Wild Yeast Kitchen offers a broad variety of loaves and pastries made in the tradition of breads from around the world. The bakery features organic and clean label ingredients whenever possible. Eventually it will transition to all-organic label.
The owner, Yuliya Childers, a.k.a. “The Bread Lady of Prattville”, is a native of Ukraine. She became interested in bread making after her move to the US. Disappointed with the grocery store offering, she started dabbling in bread making out of nostalgia. Eventually, the hobby turned into obsession, and resulted in opening a cottage food bakery.
The initial idea was to bake for sale at a local market to save away for baking school. The bakery quickly gained popularity and sizable social media following. Since the completion of San Francisco Baking Institute Artisan Bread and Pastry course in 2018, Yuliya expanded her offering further.
In 2018, Montgomery Advertiser published an article about Yuliya’s baking adventures on its front page. In 2019, Alabama Living magazine featured Wild Yeast Kitchen on the cover of its December issue.
