Are you ready for the bake sale of the year?
Yesterday I refreshed my sourdough starter. After some (who’s counting) weeks of negligence it looked pretty sad. But this morning it was awake, puffy, full of life, ready for work. So I took the very few minutes needed to mix up batches of no-knead bread destined for the San Francisco Food Blogger’s Bake Sale tomorrow, Saturday 14 May at 18 Reasons on Valencia St from 10 am to 6 pm. I’ll take 2 loaves each of Meyer Lemon-Rosemary and Fennel No-Knead Sourdough Breads. Both are variations on my multigrain sourdough no-knead recipe. But I can hardly wait to see what everyone else brings. Scenes from last year’s sale still dance like sugar plum fairies in my memory. For a few hours the sale tables will be, I would bet, the best bakery with the widest, most colorful, and creative offerings in San Francisco. And rivaled perhaps only by the simultaneous food bloggers’ bake sales going on in other cities to benefit Share Our Strength‘s programs to end childhood hunger. Hope to see you there.
