This Week’s Bakery Bulletin
Thursday, April 22, 2010
Wasn’t that a fun article about our bakery in the newspaper on Wednesday morning? If you haven’t seen it, you can click here to see the link. As advertised, we’re making the ever-popular SPENT GRAIN pan loaves, packed with barley groats from Midnight Sun Brewing Company’s beer-making process that make the bread healthy, moist, and flavorful. We’ll also be baking GOLDEN MAIZE pan loaves, with cornmeal fresh-ground in our bakery, and a touch of honey to take the edge off the sourdough’s tang.
Hearth loaves will include KALAMATA OLIVE and ALASKAN POTATO & CHIVE, both great with your pasta, soups and salads for dinner and lunches. And the dessert/snack/(not just for breakfast anymore) bread you chocolate fans have been waiting for: DARK CHOCOLATE & CHERRY again at last.
If you’ve never ordered bread through the website, you’ll click on the “register now” link, pick a username and password, and enter your information (name, email, and phone numbers). Then you can place your order!
If you’d like a weekly email reminder to order bread, and to know about the bread flavors we’ll be baking, sign up for my weekly bakery bulletin (see the sidebar on the left). Below, you’ll find a list of breads available for order this week, for pickup next Wednesday.
the bread ordering deadline
You’ll need to order your bread by MIDNIGHT on Sunday, so we have time to plan our bake, feed our sourdough, and pre-ferment the dough! When you order the bread, you can choose to “pay when you pick up your bread,” or you can pay via PayPal. By all means, use PayPal if you prefer—but I’m even happier to get your checks or cash when you come pick up your bread.
