I bake bread, farm and sell organic vegetables, host dinners, and believe eating well is an artform.

The Good, the bad and the dusty

It has been a very interesting few weeks. The construction that they said would take 3 weeks is nowhere near finished … with no real end in site.  I’ve always thought that assistant directors should run all projects. Things would be done on time, on budget and run super smoothly. That said, the construction crew has been super friendly and really great with helping our customers to get themselves, strollers, and bikes into the shop. One bonus is that all the kids reeeeeally love all the construction so feel free to come sit in the window and watch the snails pace progress happen. It’s kinda like a built-in babysitter. Just saying.

Our new pastry chef Corey Chin-Yick has been hard at work developing and baking new delicious summer treats for everyone. Welcome aboard Corey, we are so happy to have you on the team.

We want to continue to thank everyone from the bottom of our hearts for braving the fences, trucks, caution tape and at times noise and dust to come grab bread, coffees and other staples. Please remember we are here every day baking delicious bread. Thank you so much for your continued support and patronage. We are so lucky to have the best customers.

Despite being in the epicentre of construction, we got a great mention in the “Best of the City” Bakeries in Toronto Life. What fantastic company to be in! We are so proud and thankful to be noticed. We swear we did not pay or sleep with anyone to get it. So that must mean YOU are talking about it and loving what we are doing so thanks for that. Let’s all keep up the great work – baking and enjoying delicious bread!

We hope everyone is having a fantastic summer. There are so many beautiful and fun things to do in Southern Ontario. We are truly blessed to live in such a wonderful part of the world.

Attached is a slideshow of whats been happening this July

Peace Out

 

 

An Italian Garden

One of our lovely customers, Diane Bruni, connected us with her parents, Gina and Pasquale who have been gardening this plot of land for 60! years. We have the incredible fortune of planting a rather giant garden this summer in the most beautiful soil and dreamy space. We’ve somehow managed to get almost everything in the ground – here are a few pics.

Bread School

Last week our local Montessori elementary class came to the bakery for a sourdough bread workshop. Every year the elementary students work on a “Cosmic Plan” that helps them understand a topic and it’s myriad connections to the world. This year their topic is Bread. The kids were so curious and interested in what we do. We talked about agriculture, culture, sciences, math, history, and had tactile experiences making, shaping and eating the bread. They were excellent students and made the most beautiful loaves of bread to take home. Thanks everyone for coming to visit and to learn about how Real Bread is made. Hope to see you soon!
