I wanted to open a sandwich shop. (Actually, I still do). When I told my wife that, though, she was questioning in a way only someone who truly knows you can.
"You're going to get bored"
OK. So I scaled it back. What's the smallest step I can take, that doesn't completely alter my life but allows me to start something and start making food for other people regularly.
Kingston Bread Lab was born.
I wasn't sure how it would go - if anyone would sign up - if people would like the bread that I was working so hard on. Wonderful people signed up and they liked the bread! I had two really successful pop-ups and even taught a bread workshop. 10 weeks went by really quickly.
Most importantly, I didn't get bored.
Bread is still magic.
So I'm starting the next chapter of Kingston Bread Lab with a couple small changes but nothing too crazy (yet!).
Instead of setting the window with a specific time-frame, you can pre-pay for a number of weeks of bread (with a bigger discount for more weeks up front). If you miss a week, no big deal, I'll be sending out a simple message each week ahead of time asking if you're planning on getting bread that week.
Every week I'll also be putting up a number of loaves to pre-order on Thursday for the weekend bake. This will hopefully let more people try the bread before they commit to longer periods. This also means you can pick up more than one loaf a weekend if you want to.
Pickups are Saturday in Uptown Kingston. I'm looking into doing pickups on other days as well, but just need to get the demand there first.
I'm really excited to start baking again for all of you and hope to see some new faces soon.
