The big news over here is that we finally got our approval letter to begin building the bakery! I picked it up yesterday and we will begin construction this week. One thing this means is there will likely be a week or two in late October or early November when I cannot make bread because the oven will be at the new location awaiting an inspection from the County. I am trying to keep this period as brief as possible, but there are many unknowns. Just moving the oven is going to be a terrible ordeal because it won't fit through the door without being tipped on its sides and partially disassembled. Oh and it weighs 1,600 lbs.
This week I'll have the long-awaited Parmesan Pepper, along with Country French, semolina, sprouted grain, and probably a rye sandwich loaf. I'll have plenty of sweets too. My friend Jill gave me the flu for my birthday and it kept me from the Farmer's Market this week, so I have lots of sweets ready to go. I sure hope somebody buys them.
See you on Thursday from 5-7 on Main Street!
