Another Big Food etailer posing as down home folks

Hi all,

FYI, just got an email inviting me to a new online site called bakersbodega. What they don't tell you is that it's run by BakeMark, which owns Duncan Hines, among other brands, and sells flours under a dozen different brand names ... same wine, different bottle. Let them at least be honest about who they are.

around for thousands of years.  I mean something native to CA and grown as crops:

Buckwheat was the only thing I recognized (ignoring chia) related to breads. It was of course introduced, not native. Should be a good crop for northern CA and higher elevations, not otherwise suited to cereals.

cheers,
