Laune Bread began in 2015 by Chris MacLeod as a bike delivered subscription micro-bakery. He realized that working solo was not for him, closed shop and moved to Switzerland. Returning to Minnesota in 2019, the oven turned back on with the addition of Tiff Singh.

Raised in northern California, Chris discovered bread while living abroad in Munich. Never anticipating a career in baking, Chris studied Rhetoric & German at Lewis & Clark College in Portland, OR. Only as a form of procrastination did his baking grow.

An accidental baker, Chris relies on the skills taught through his peers and mentors; american, swiss, german, french, dutch. With no formal training + no set tradition, he is fueled by the GOOD VIBES \ GUTE LAUNE that the dough prescribes. His techniques and values are rooted in his mentors, found in idyllic Pt. Reyes Station, CA, Portland, OR, Minneapolis, MN and rural Germany.
