First Test Batch of Baguettes
April 14, 2015
A few more giant steps forward this weekend. With the plumbing finally completed and the sinks in place I was ready to put the bakery through its paces. The
maiden voyage of my spiral mixer
went smoothly, although I can tell it will get even better with larger batches. My work table is on backorder, so I had to divide and shape baguettes hunched over a folding table. Not ideal, but it worked. The new stones in the oven heated up nicely. The only piece still missing is the steam generator, hopefully shipping this week, so I am still manning the oven with a squirt bottle in hand just like I do at home. The end result was very respectable!
At the end of the day, Becky and I took a walk up Main Street with a basket of baguettes and shared them with everyone we passed. Hopefully we will see them again in a few weeks! We are gearing up for the first Community Market on Saturday May 2nd, then opening the bakery on the following week!

In the time you waste poking around your phone right now, you could have fresh bread for dinner.
