About Us

Ari Hoffnung and Eric Greenbaum, NY-based bakers and noshers, have been friends and co-workers for many years. In the COVID pandemic, like many families, they relied on baking with their families for comfort. They started wondering if it was possible for talented home bakers to connect to a wider community without retail stores or shipping across the country. Thus, Cottage Nosh was born. Please meet our amazing team of people deeply dedicated to the success of home bakers.
