Jennifer Behar founder/CEO
Before there was a Jennifer's Homemade there was a damn good breadstick
Jennifer made breadsticks for dinner parties and friends fell in love. After years of people telling her to sell her breadsticks, a marketing background and a divorce, Jennifer had an epiphany, create a business doing what she loved.
That was the beginning
In 2005, Jennifer was a single mother often cooking with her young daughter Stephanie. She started Jennifer’s Homemade out of her passion for baking and the inspiration to create delicious products with integrity and quality.
Our Unique Process
Our dough is made from scratch using an Italian biga and only a few natural ingredients. A biga is a pre-fermentation which gives our products delicious flavor, added texture, and makes them less perishable and easier to digest.
We made our original biga from scratch in 2019.
Added Flavor and Texture
Using a biga adds complexity to the flavor and texture of our breadsticks and flatbread
A biga also helps to naturally preserve our products by making them less perishable
Easy to Digest
One of the biggest benefits of a Biga is that our Breadsticks and Flatbread are easier to digest. Many of our customers with gluten sensitivities tell us they can easily (and happily) eat our products
(everything is made with unbleached/unbromated wheat flour)
We use extra virgin olive oil, kosher salt and fresh rosemary in our recipes
Vegan, all-natural, made with extra virgin olive oil
Jennifer’s Homemade has been featured in Food & Wine and Gourmet Magazines, The New York Times, The Miami Herald, The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch, The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer on CNN, National Public Radio, an American Express OPEN small business print advertising campaign and Jennifer baked with Martha Stewart on MARTHA, The Martha Stewart Show
Jennifer’s Homemade breadsticks and flatbread are sold in gourmet markets, hotels and restaurants nationwide
We hope you enjoy our products as much as we enjoy making them.
