The word "hewn" is a way to connect the past with the future. Everything at Hewn is made in-house, from scratch daily. We source our grains from local, organic farms, and all of our breads are hand-mixed, hand-shaped and naturally fermented without commercial yeast. We appreciate our partnerships with local farmers, and we enjoy creating new items using heritage flours.
Regardless of experience, every new baker hired at Hewn goes through our extensive training program. Each staff person is provided with opportunities for professional growth. We have a wonderful team of people who share our commitment to making the best possible products.
Hewn has been recognized in the New York Times, Chicago Magazine, the Chicago Tribune, Saveur magazine and many other local and national publications for our commitment to making naturally fermented artisan breads and pastries. We are a part of Evanston's burgeoning food and drink scene, and we appreciate being in a diverse community.
