Uri Scheft

Master baker Uri Scheft is the owner of Breads Bakery, which had an immediate cult following when it opened in New York City’s Union Square in 2014. Scheft also owns Tel Aviv’s Lehamim Bakery, which has been open since 2001. Born in Israel to Danish parents, Scheft grew up in both Israel and Denmark and both of those influences—along with his training in Europe—show up in all that he bakes, including Scandinavian dark rye and marzipan-filled croissants and Jewish staples like challah and babka. Scheft divides his time between Israel and the United States.
