Today’s Bread is a cracked grain soaker with Sonora white wheat, rye, and barley from Grass Valley Grains.  Grass Valley Grains is a one man operation, Reed Hamilton is growing grain in Placerville and milling at his mill in Grass Valley. Reed mills with a stone mill and all flours are 100% intact meaning that the whole grain is milled together rather than milled separate and recombined later.  This makes his flour very nutritious and flavorful.  Sonora white wheat is oldest type of wheat grown in the bay area and is making a comeback with this loaf! I am soaking the rough bran that I have sifted out when milling for the days bake and adding that mixture back to the dough.  This way all of the grain is complete but the sharp edges of the bran don’t cut the dough preventing the final rise in the oven.

New Pick up location! Visit and let your friends know about my new location at Cafe St. Jorge at the crossroads of Mission and Bernal Heights. Get a great coffee from Stumptown and delicious Portuguese style pastries!

Here is the Daily Candy article that came out last Friday!
In a couple of weeks I plan to open a concept store called Bread Box within Merch at 629 Haight St. SF. The Bread Box will be able to hold all of the subscription breads as well as hold a good amount of bread for retail. I will be at the Box doing bread tastings in the afternoons so stay tuned for updates. Here is a picture of one of my drawings for the Bread Box.

This week will be the first week of my second month! How time flies and also feels like an eternity at the same time.

Thank you to all the subscribers and bread purchasers, I obviously couldn’t do it without you!  Thank you to  everyone who liked my Facebook page or responded to Twitter and Instagram.  This helps tremendously as well as keeps me entertained while I am baking throughout the night.

The month of April is going to be very busy.  Starting with Dogfest 2013 in Duboce Park, San Francisco Saturday April 13. This is the big fundraiser for Mckinley Elementary and I will have a table set up for bread tasting and bread sales.  All the proceeds will go to the school PTA which helps fund many of the school programs as well as the afterschool programs. This is a great opportunity to stop by and say hello and buy some breads!

Here is the packaging that I have been working on.  Kristen Haff and I designed the logo over the course of two years. Kristen is awesome and the packaging is still evolving with each week.
