Rize Up Sourdough at Luke's Local

"I've never seen a Black baker in my entire life. There are certain things that people don't equate with Blackness. I definitely want people to see me as this is what I am, and this is what I do."

- Azikiwee Anderson, owner

 

This incredible, pandemic-born business came to be in response to social unrest and the disparate impact of the pandemic experienced by the Black community. The name "Rize Up" has a dual meaning that represents both the nature of dough as well as a need to stand up for justice.

Azikiwee discovered his passion for baking bread during quarantine and transformed his home into a micro-bakery focused on giving back and changing the world one homemade loaf at a time.

We couldn't be more honored to be carrying his loaves at Luke's Local!

 

Available at our Cole Valley & Cow Hollow markets, as well as on the Luke's Local App.

"I love making a bibimbap style meal since you can use up whatever you have in your fridge and can customize each bowl to the different preferences of your family. The Wynn’s Sate Sauce makes a great and easy marinade for flank steak but this would also be great with tofu. Feel free to substitute different veggies based on what you have and like." - Chef Nicolette
