Local love in every loaf.

The gods must be smiling II

The rain stopped just as it was time to get baking yesterday, so we were able to hold the entirety of the workshop in the garden again. Megan and I realized that as the monthly workshops continue, workshop regulars will get to see the steady improvement on the state of the house. Last month, the kitchen was looking about 40% more drab than it does now. This month, we have a beautifully tiled floor and a crazy orange sink!

For me, everything becomes clear when I'm teaching, and it's nice to be able to share something as practical as bread-baking. As lovely as the purpose for our gathering is, the really special part of the baking workshops is the down time. Everyone had something to share--music, ideas, stories, recipes, unusual perspectives.  No energy is lost or gained. Everyone brought something to share and went home a little brighter, and a little sleepier.
