bread for july 30 + aug 3 ===== last bake for a bit

Hello!  Just to remind you that I'm moving house (and bakery), so next week will be my last week of baking for a little while (and also the last bake in Mission Hills). It may be a good time to stock up like mad.

Here's what I'll be making. Email if you have questions or want to order.  Many thank-yous!!! kyla



tuesday july 30  (order before 9pm on sunday)

country levain ($4): mostly-white loaf with some whole wheat & rye thrown in.
&
fruits+nuts bread (bread of the day, $5): with almonds, hazelnuts, raisins and figs. maybe even some pistachios.
&
auvergne-style rye ($5): rustic as hell rye. awesome with cheese.



friday august 3 (order before 9pm on wednesday)

country levain ($4).
&
tahini-sesame bread (bread of the day; $5): soft and nutty crumb; crunchy-sesame crust.
&
walnut brown ($5): whole grain loaf with lots of toasted walnuts. sounds boring and healthy, right? but it's possibly my favourite among every bread i've made.

bread for july 16 & 19 >>>>

Hi bread-friends,

First order of business: in August I will be moving house, which means moving my oven, which may be complicated. Even more complicated: the new house is in La Jolla, which is awesomely close to the beach but rather far from all of you bread-eating folks in Hillcrest/University Heights/North Park. All of which means that after Friday August 2 I will be on a bit of a hiatus while I sort things out.

But not to fear, I will be baking as usual for the next three weeks!  If there's a particular bread you've been hankering for, let me know and I'll do my best to make it before the move.

Here's the line-up for next week... send me an email if you'd like to order something (or have a request for the future).
Thanks!!!
kyla




tuesday july 16  (order before 9pm on sunday)

country levain ($4): mostly-white loaf with some whole wheat & rye thrown in.
&
pepita-sunflower (bread of the day; $5): full of crunchy-toasty seeds!
&
whole wheat & honey sandwich loaf ($5): 100% whole wheat flour, plus some oats and honey.
   

friday july 19 (order before 9pm on wednesday)

country levain ($4).
&
IPA-rye (bread of the day; $5): light rye made with my favourite beer. the hops flavour is subtle, but soooo good.
&
raisin & walnut levain ($5): sweet-sweet raisins, plus best-ever local walnuts from terra bella ranch.


here's a goopy-looking photo from this morning's bake..... rum-plum-apricot bread!

bread for july 2 & 5

Next week will be full of national holidays and delicious breads. Here's what I'll be baking:


tuesday july 2  (order before 9pm on sunday)

country levain ($4): mostly-white loaf with some whole wheat & rye thrown in.
&
light rye with sweet-roasted onion (bread of the day, $5).
&
rosemary & olive oil levain ($5).



  
friday july 5 (order before 9pm on wednesday)

country levain ($4).
&
fruits+nuts bread (bread of the day, $5): with almonds, hazelnuts, raisins and figs.
&
auvergne-style rye ($5): the auvergne region of france is known for it's hearty cheeses and strong rye breads, and doubtless some non-culinary things as well. this bread is quite different from a square-and-orderly german- or scandinavian-style rye... it's round and rustic and begs to be used to mop up what's left on your plate – or else toasted and eaten with blue cheese and cold wine..... check it out:





Please email me if you have questions or want to order. Thanks!!! Hope your weekend is awesome!

details:

where to get your bread

– Alternatively, I can deliver directly if you live in this area (10am or so).

subscriptions
– Avoid having to remember to order every week, and sign up for a subscription!  $20 gets you a "bread of the day" (either tuesday or friday) for the next four weeks.
– If you have a subscription and you change it up (e.g. you have a Tuesday subscription but want the Friday bread-of-the-day), it's no problem – just let me know before the order deadline.
– You can still order individual loaves if you aren't ready for a subscription just yet.

paying
– Payment can be made with cash/cheque or Paypal (use breadcanyon@gmail.com for paypal).
– If you plan on ordering bread often, you are welcome to just give me $20 in advance and I will keep track of your credit so you don't need to worry about paying each time.

Thanks! Have a radical weekend!

modern times bread: handsome, rugged, a little rough around the edges.
