Winter update

Dear Friends and Shareholders:

After much deliberation, the baking and working crew of Fancy and Delicious has decided to postpone the winter share. We have not come to this decision lightly. We feel that in order to sustain long term success, we need to take pause to troubleshoot, and strengthen our base as a collective. We are now gearing towards a share that will begin in a couple of months, when the winter starts cracking. We will be using this time to further renovate the community space at Eaton Street, refine and develop new recipes, and work towards vendorship at Farmer's Markets in the spring, among other tasks.  Although we are not going to be baking your weekly bread for another couple of months yet, there is still a lot going on behind the scenes, and it is never too late to get involved. If you're interested in helping out on any level (no experience necessary), email us at fancyanddelicious@gmail.com, or call Maura (994-8340), Matt (307-7726), or Tori (585-766-3195).

We also encourage you to join us at our monthly bread baking workshops. The next one is on Saturday, February 19th, from noon to 4, at the Nickel City Coop (208 North Street). At a typical workshop, we discuss a specific type of bread, and then practice the techniques that go into making that bread. While our loaves are rising and baking, we have a chance to drink tea or coffee, and enjoy one another's good company. All skill levels are welcome. Ingredients and equipment are provided. The workshops are donation based.

On March 18th, we will be hosting a bread tasting fundraiser extravaganza at the Nickel City Coop. The evening will be a casual, but elegant affair that will include a pyromancy show, live music, home brewed beer, and of course, bread. Both new and classic recipes will be present--cinnamon-raisin, anybody? 

Stay posted for details about this event, and other upcoming events. Contact us, as always, with questions and suggestions. If you have already paid for your winter share, you will be given the option of a full refund. Alternatively, we can hold onto your money to reserve your spot in the spring, when we resume the share.

In solidarity,
The Fancy and Delicious Baking Company Collective.
