Issue #78

We have shifted to our wintertime routine! Starting in mid-October, you’ll be able to order bread here, on the website, and pick it up at a couple different locations around town on Wednesdays. We will bake once or twice a month during the winter. Subscribe to our email newsletter on the left margin, and I will notify you before we bake each month, as a reminder to order. The first wintertime bake will be for Wednesday, October 23rd, and you can start ordering for that pickup date on Thursday, October 17th.

We will be baking once or twice a month through the winter. The loaves really do freeze and thaw nicely because of their three-day fermentation, so it’s not a problem to stock up and freeze your bread for later.

A WORD ABOUT GLUTEN-FREE BREAD. We’ve had a lot of questions about making gluten-free breads lately, and while the bread is made with wheat, and therefore contains gluten, the long action of the sourdough on the dough consumes a lot of the glutens that people can be sensitive to. So if you’re celiac, you won’t be able to eat the bread. But if you’re just looking to cut down on gluten in your diet, our whole grain sourdough offers a healthy, whole-grain alternative to regular bread. 

If you’d like to know what bread we’re baking each week through the winter, please see our long term baking schedule.

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).

the bread ordering deadline

You’ll need to order your bread by MIDNIGHT on Sunday before we bake, so we have time to plan our bake, feed our sourdough, and pre-ferment the dough!  You will pay for the bread when you come to pick it up—either by cash or check.

1.  Side Street Espresso, 412 G Street, downtown: 8-10am
