Wooden Table Baking Company
Wooden Table Baking Co. is an Oakland-based bakery, dedicated to crafting the finest Argentinian treats. We’ve been making our alfajores and bonbons from scratch with high quality, all natural ingredients since 2011.
The Makers and Their Production Spaces
Wooden Table is owned and operated by our head baker, Andrés Ozzuna, who grew up on the outskirts of Buenos Aires, Argentina and learned to cook from their grandmother. It is from her that they inherited the love of cooking. They spent the weekends together at a wooden table making raviolis, gnochi, tarts and sweet treats every weekend. We named our company after this shared wooden table – to honor the heritage on which our company’s recipes are founded as well as the shared experience of cooking and eating that fosters love and community.
At the Bakery in Oakland we work with a small team of immigrant employees and at the Café we offer our specialties of alfajores, dulce de leche cones, chocolate barks, submarino, coffee, bonbons, candy and more. Andrés is always creating new flavors and experimenting with original raw materials combining antique recipes with new trends.
Argentinians are lucky to have a sharing culture. We share yerba mate, food, music, close embraces and tight spaces. Nothing makes us happier than family and friends new and old eating, drinking and spending time together. We believe we are truly sweeter together.
And as an immigrant-owned, LGBTQ-certified business, we know from experience that together means all of us. We embrace, celebrate and support our Latinx, LGBTQ, and immigrant employees, customers and allies to make sure we all enjoy the sweetness.
The Making Process
Our recipes are based on Andrés’ grandmother’s recipes. We honor her and Argentine tradition by baking our cookies from scratch using all natural ingredients.
The Production Model
Our small business bakes everything handmade for our Café and shipping nationwide. We offer a special flavor of the month, which we change monthly depending on the season and holidays.
We use all natural ingredients. Real butter, eggs, milk, and sugar, just like grandma did. Instead of using “natural flavorings,” we use actual vanilla, peppermint oil, cinnamon, 64% dark chocolate and lemon extract, because real ingredients translate into yummier cookies. We make our products without preservatives, because fresh is just how grandma rolled.
