Michelle Kovach has been baking for as long as she can remember. To her, sharing food is ritual. It’s love. It’s healing. It’s a way to take care of each other. Beyond baking, Michelle is passionate about permaculture and gardening; preserving and fermenting food; foraging and discovering wild edibles.

Crackling Crust Microbakery is located in the heart of Cincinnati, Ohio. Breads, bagels and other from-scratch baked products are made fresh-to-order and delivered to various markets and small stores within the Queen City as well as close, outlying areas. If you'd like to carry our products in your establishment, please get in touch. 

We're excited to announce six new classes starting Fall 2017! Click here to learn more about each class and reserve your spot.
