In 1989, Silverton ventured on her own and co-founded La Brea Bakery. The bakery, a small storefront on La Brea Avenue in Los Angeles, would go on to become one of the most influential artisanal bakeries in the United States. Silverton’s dedication to using the finest ingredients and time-honored baking methods resulted in bread that was not only delicious but celebrated for its craftsmanship. Her sourdough and baguettes quickly gained a loyal following among chefs and food enthusiasts.

It was at La Brea Bakery that Silverton’s commitment to perfection and her relentless pursuit of quality were most evident. The bakery’s success was unprecedented, and it played a pivotal role in the resurgence of artisanal bread-making in the United States.
