Gourmalicious- My very own little home bakery

October 22, 2014 - 2:43am -- Farahkamal23@gm...

Hi all, I am very excited to share that I have finally started selling my baked products to a select group of customers and got extremely flattering reviews. I bake before leaving home on 1-2 workdays  and then half day over weekends with a full time job I only bake as hobby. Some of the things that really picked up and people loved them include: 1-Garlic Knots 2-Pleated bread with different fillings 3- Cheese and herb loaf. I am sharing the images here.

Couple of good bakeries in Italy

What a nice country and, though wine and other foods are generally touted, there is fine bread in Italy. Here are my recommendations. A dream job would be to travel around tasting bread and writing about bakeries. Maybe a glass or two of wine to accompany the bread would be nice, especially in Italy.

We had lunch on Saturday at this fine bakery that is more of the breakfast, lunch and buffet place.  The only SD bread they made was a Deli Rye but they also made Focaccia (their most expensive bread at $5 a loaf), 7 grain, 2 kings of challah, jalapeno and cheddar, white, honey wheat, pumpernickel (all $4 a loaf) and croissants -  and the winner is....... jalapeno and cheddar.  All of them were fine tasting though and the price is more than right.

Hi! I'm interested in starting up a bakery in my home town. I've done extensive research on the bread making process and I lean towards the traditional bread making process, what many refer to as artisan bread making. My interests lie in selling sourdough and a variety of southern European breads as well as some hardy Nordic and Germanic rye breads. The trick with running a profitable bakery is that it can't be all old school as it needs to be efficient enough to keep up with a market demand, and thus I find myself seeking out equipment and methods that modernize baking.
