Holiday Menu

Greetings from the Bakery!

Bread Classes have officially started and I couldn't be happier about teaching! Making bread in the summer is just as rewarding, but for different reasons. Teaching folks how to make their own bread is something that I'm truly passionate about. Some folks have sent messages that they heard the spot on NPR over the weekend - I swear I'm the only one who DIDN'T hear it! That being said, classes are filling up so don't hesitate on reserving a spot soon! If you'd like to purchase a class as a gift (or give someone a HINT to purchase a class for YOU), now's the time! I can also provide a card for gifting - just shoot me an email for more information!

Fresh-Milled & Organic

...an update to last week's installment...
Tomorrow I'm headed up to a farm, about an hour north of Cincinnati, to meet a farmer who grows organic spelt. Spelt is one of my favorite grains (second only to rye) that is so satisfying to work with. The flavor is earthy and balanced, the dough is stretchy and strong, the gluten is minimal. We eat a lot of spelt around here, and I've been looking for a local source of organic spelt so I can start milling my own. Stay tuned to see how it goes - I'm coming home with a bag to test out!

Deerfield is ON this week!

Saturday I'll be at Deerfield from 10-11am, slinging loaves and a few pastries. Come out and say hi, grab some bread and cinnamon rolls, and head back home for some hot chocolate and holiday movies. Menu is posted below...

December 4 Menu & Schedule // Going Organic & Milling Flour

Greetings from the Bakery!

We're in the middle of what seems to be the most stressful time of year for a lot of folks. I'm just as guilty as the next person in finding myself sleeping less, worrying more, eating more, and just generally giving in to bad habits during the month of December. When things seem overwhelming, it's always helpful for me schedule time for activities that bring me peace, and this past week it was planting a few perennials in the ground (as well as ripping up some honeysuckle!). Amongst all the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, don't forget to take care of YOU as well!

Fresh-Milled & Organic

During these slower months, I have time to experiment with new products and ingredients. In past years, I've used this time to come up with new loaves. This year, I'm using this time to switch all my flours over to ORGANIC, and with the einkorn, rye, spelt, and heritage wheat flours, I'll also be milling all of those myself. More and more I find myself choosing organic over conventional when it comes to my own food, and I've decided to move my breads over that way as well. And when it come to fresh-milled flour, there really is no comparison in flavor and health benefits to bagged flour. 

Wyoming & Montgomery are ON this week!

Montgomery Farmers Market: Saturday, 9:30-12:30pm

Bread Classes are Filling Up!

Bread Classes are up and running for this winter! I'm so excited to share my love of making bread with everyone. There are still a handful of classes in December (see note about about taking care of yourself - take a bread class for some stress relief!) if you'd like to still sign up. And of course there are classes all throughout January and February on the calendar.
