Orwasher’s Bakery was established in 1916 and has been listed among the top ten bakeries in America.  Abraham Orwasher baked Eastern European / Jewish style loaves of challah and pumpernickel.  It is claimed that Abraham’s son, Louis, invented Raisin Pumpernickel bread at Orwasher’s during World War II.  The bakery is currently under the ownership of Keith Cohen, who launched a new line of Artisan Wine Breads, which use a wine grape starter in collaboration with Channing Daughters Vineyard in Long Island.
