daily bread (gift-away)



I adore really good breads.
There is something sacred about baking bread and then breaking bread around the table.

In 1983, Daniel Leader put his life in his hands. He left his job in New York City and moved his family to the Catskill Mountains and started Bread Alone Bakery with one goal in mind:
To bake wholesome and organic bread on the hearth of a wood-fired brick oven.

Today Bread Alone is~
Handcrafted, organic, whole grains, local, healthy

How simple, creating each artisan loaf by hand every day from little more than organic whole grains, water and sea salt.

Wishing each of you a simple Thanksgiving with bread on your table for breaking, and sharing.
Today, my gift-away is from Bread Alone, Two Books by Daniel Leader, and 3 bags of flour.
( a fifty dollar value)

Follow me, leave a comment, and promise me you will break bread on Thanksgiving Day.

breaking bread is the easy part... I am terrified of trying to bake my own. it is on my short list, but I might need a tranquilizer to get started... standing in front of the yeast at the grocery makes my palms sweat.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I agree that baking bread is a sacred act. It connects us to our past and the fragrance of baking bread is a gift from the gods. Wishing you a well bread thanksgiving.

Our son-in-law will be making our bread. It is always so good and nourishing.

I adore the turkey.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

We eat bread every day! I made baguettes last week which turned out great. My family devoured them!

Hope you and your family had an awesome Thanksgiving!
