After learning to make bread at Chestnut in Carroll Gardens, Matthew Tilden decided he wanted to leave the traditional café setting and launched SCRATCHbread with only $5,000, peddling his loaves of cracked fennel, Brownstone focaccia, and scones at shops around Brooklyn. After seventeen months flitting from oven to oven trying to get SCRATCHbread out to the masses, he finally found a production spot in Bed-Stuy.
