Harbord Bakery Challah

Harbord Bakery Challah

Open since 1945, Harbord Bakery has become a Toronto legend—namely because of its hand-baked, classic Jewish challah bread, otherwise known as “egg bread.” Is challah “egg bread”? Yes, and this is because the recipe calls for more eggs that you’d normally see in a loaf of bread. That said, not all challah contains eggs.

Chef’s Recommendation

Fresh bread is best stored in a paper bag, never plastic. To keep bread fresh longer, store in a dark place, such as a breadbox or cupboard.
