Relax and Eat Bread is a start up business by couple, Ian and Tara Conover.

We make our bread in small batches, it is naturally leavened using a long fermentation process to guarantee taste and texture. 

We believe bread is a daily essential and should be made of the highest quality ingredients, handmade and fresh. 

We want you to simply RELAX and EAT BREAD



Ian Conover is a San Francisco native.  From a young age his mother taught him how to bake with sourdough using her 20 year old starter. In 2016 Ian decided to leave his career in the cycling industry to go to culinary school at Santa Rosa Junior College.  Now baking in Petaluma, you might spot Ian delivering fresh bread with his delivery van to your friends and neighbors.

Ian's favorite bread is the Rye with a smear of maple butter.
