Issue #57, Fall 2011


We have finished our summer at the Farmers Market, and now we’ve switched to our wintertime routine, where you can order the bread here on our website and we will bake your loaves for pickup on alternate Wednesdays. Please sign up for our email newsletters (see the sidebar on the left)! The newsletters will remind you when we are baking, when you can order, and let you know what flavors of bread we’ll be baking .

After you order the bread, you can pick up your loaves on Wednesday evenings (4-6pm) at Summit Spice & Tea on Huffman Road or on Wednesday mornings (8-10am) downtown at Side Street Espresso (412 G Street). PLEASE NOTE: We are now delivering to Summit Spice & Tea now, instead of Over the Rainbow Toys. Summit’s South Anchorage location is located across Huffman Road from the toy store, in the little mall at Huffman and Old Seward, at 1120 Huffman Rd, Suite 1. They have all kinds of great teas, jams, olive and nut oils, preserves, chocolates, and other goodies.

Before we start baking for our wintertime schedule, we are taking a couple of weeks off to visit family. Then we’ll be back to bake bread for Wednesday, October 26. If you sign up for the email newsletter (see the sidebar at left), I’ll send a reminder to you on Thursday, October 20.

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! In case you can’t make the website work, you can always email me at: .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address), or call me at 677-3712.

If you’ve ordered bread before, but you are having trouble remembering your login name or password, you can email me .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address), or call me at 677-3712.

We’ll be baking about every other week, always skipping the first Wednesday of the month. The schedule will vary a little, though, to accommodate the holidays, to make sure you’ll have plenty of opportunities to order bread for gifts, if you need to.

the bread ordering deadline

You’ll need to order your bread by MIDNIGHT on Sunday (starting on October 20), 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.

bread pickup locations

Pick-up locations for Wednesdays:
1.  Side Street Espresso, 412 G Street, downtown: 8-10am
2.  Summit Spice & Tea, at 1120 Huffman Rd, Suite 1 (in the mall at Huffman and Old Seward): 4-6pm

If you need to call me during a pick-up time, you can reach me on my cell phone at 748-3712. At other times, please call me at home/the bakery: 677-3712.

Would you like to see a video of us baking your bread? Our bakery is a small commercial kitchen attached to our house on the lower Anchorage Hillside.
