I took a class, together with my 11 year old daughter and my father, from Morton last week. We did the baguette basics class and Morton's Bakehouse has new kitchen space that is perfect for classes! Morton, AKA the Rye Guy, is a knowledgeable instructor and we learned a lot about how to bake bread. At the end of the... More

A friend signed us up for this class and I wasn't sure that's what I wanted to do on my vacation, but we ended up having a great time and going home with some first class baguettes. Mort is a charming host, an experienced baker and a great teacher. His kitchen is large and well equipped, and he was well... More

I can't say enough about the delicious freshly baked artisan breads that come out of this bakery. It's worth the journey from the U.S. for the bread alone.

My husband and I stayed in Mort and Barbara's Casita by the River, that could rightfully be called Sangri La. The beauty, comfort and the artisan bread made it so. Mort gave us the best rye bread I have had in years. He genuinely likes teaching, he is a natural and when you blend this with his passion for making... More

It's impossible not to fall in love with Mort Rabkin (and his lovely wife Barb). A warm welcome, a leisurely day of bread-making, and then, of course, the delicious bread itself. Mort brings a real sense of passion and fun to his baking that you can taste in every loaf. Boquete has so many wonderful gems, and this experience is... More

I took several of Mort's bread making classes and they were so much fun AND I got to leave with some DE-licious bread! I would recommend taking his class to anyone of any age. He is a funny and genuinely nice guy, who truly loves making bread and sharing his knowledge with others. If you find yourself in Boquette don't... More

I haven't tasted bread this good since I left New Jersey where my family owned bakeries. Mort Rabkin, The Rye Guy, aside from being a master baker is one heck of a teacher as well. If you're looking for a vacation in a tropical paradise and you want to come away with the knowledge and skill to make great artisan... More

I've known Mort Rabkin and his wife Barbara since they first moved to Boquete and Mort began tinkering with the outdoor clay oven at their beautiful home in downtown Boquete. He soon started producing bread that rivals the baguettes, batards, pains de campagne and croissants I remember from my years in France. And then there's the rye bread and bagels.... More
