San Francisco Food Blogger Bake Sale 2012

    Get ready, get set. Bring a full wallet

and an empty stomach to Omnivore Books, 27th and Church, San Francisco between 11 am and 4 pm Saturday, 28 April.

There you will find one of the most eclectic and amazing bakeries ever. You can feel good about indulging, too, since the proceeds go to Share Our Strength, a nonprofit dedicated to ending childhood hunger.

“No kid hungry. We share our strengths of baking to help end childhood hunger. It’s that simple,” said Annelies Zijderveld, a food blogger who with Shauna Sever and Anita Chu are organizing the SF Food Bloggers’ Bake Sale for the third year in a row. Anita began the effort and the first sale raised about $1500. The second year we raised $2500. And the 28th will be the third.

I’ll contribute several large loaves of no-knead bread: fennel-fig? or the apricot-anise I just baked for the first time this morning? Pull-apart oatmeal rolls? Definitely Meyer Lemon-Rosemary.

As for the rest, well! San Francisco Food Bloggers from around the city bring multi-layered cakes, pies of all sorts, gluten-free goodies, and I am hoping Shauna brings a collection of her marshmallows from her new Marshmallow Madness cookbook (Quirk, 2012).

Come and feast your eyes on the abundant goods and drink in the festive atmosphere. You will be amazed at the many, many, many offerings almost none of which you will ever find anywhere else except for this one day in this one location. Come and take home a treat. Or two. Or more.
