Dispatch from Jen Abroad
I have added a few pics down below from my trip. Jet-lagged for sure, but being here with my older daughter, Mariah, and son-in-law, Nick, is a wonderful treat. As my mind clears I will make notes on the bread and bakery items I encounter. We are already off to a wonderful start in that regard.
I really appreciate the talents of the MWIB Crew back home who are making it possible to keep the bakery open while I am gone–Wonderful Bakery Chefs!
While I am gone here are some contact numbers.

Dispatch from Susannah & Kelsey, the MWIB Crew
As Jen is celebrating the longest day of the year in Bath, we (Susannah and Kelsey) are already talking about next week’s offerings, including our respective techniques for making a perfect, pillowy ciabatta. A friendship forged while studying abroad in Paris translates well to this beautiful, sunny bakeshop in Southern Appalachia! Next week, we’ll merge the two worlds by making classic French croissants with local Carolina Ground flour.
This Week’s Offerings
The MWIB uses organically grown flour from Carolina Ground (grown in the region and milled here in Asheville) and Lindley Mills (Graham, NC)
