The Model Bakery, the Napa Valley artisan bakery which is a favorite of media mogul Oprah Winfrey, has announced that several of its products will now be available through Goldbelly.
The online marketplace for regional and artisanal foods crafted by local food purveyors now features The Model Bakery’s famous English muffins, English muffin gift packs, select cookies and granola, as well as The Model Bakery Cookbook.
The Model Bakery gained national attention when its English muffins appeared on Oprah’s Favorite Things list in 2016 and 2017, and again for the 20th Anniversary List in 2020. Each Model Bakery English muffin is hand made in the Napa Valley, from the bakery's long-standing recipe using The Model Bakery focaccia bread dough, dusted in cornmeal and griddled in clarified butter to give it a crunchy exterior and moist and fluffy inside.
“Oprah had the chance to taste our English muffins while visiting the Napa Valley and really loved them,” says Model Bakery co-owner Sarah Mitchell Hansen. “We’ve been sending her special orders for years and are thrilled to have been featured as one of her Favorite Things three times.”
