Callie (calliekoch) came from Fort Collins, Colorado to the Back Home Bakery last week (Sept 5-13) for her one week internship.  Although new to sourdoughs, Callie's been baking and cooking for a while, and it showed in her meticulous work and attention to detail.

I'm sure you'll agree everything looks absolutely perfect!

Thanks for all of the help Callie, hope to see you again up here.

5 minutes at The Back Home Bakery

September 13, 2009 - 8:31pm -- mcs

This is a five minute snapshot from last Saturday at our bakery.  We were fortunate to have Paul and his wife visiting at the time, so you'll catch a glimpse of Paul (PMcCool) doing his thing.  Enjoy.

If you'd like to read a detailed account of Paul's internship, check out his blog entry here.


PS Thanks a bunch Paul for all of your help.

At the end of August, Diane came from Vancouver Island, BC for a week long internship at the Back Home Bakery.  During her stay we made everything from puff pastry dough to baguettes with everything in between.  Although both she and Sharon (aka 'the wife') are a bit camera shy, I did manage to snap a couple of photos of the elusive two during the course of the week.
Thanks a bunch Diane for helping out with the farmers' markets, daily deliveries, wholesale accounts and even dinner too.  Hope to see you again next time around.
