Galveston Bread Selections 

I started baking bread a quarter of a century ago, using a recipe from a cookbook at the bookstore where I worked. They were “country loaves” made with milk and butter and baked in loaf pans.

It took a while but I eventually stumbled on a book called Bread Alone. If you want to get a serious understanding of why bread does what it does, and how you can affect that process, read the book. There are many others but that is what started it all for me.

Today I bake from a carefully nurtured starter. I bake different breads using different types of flour, winter and spring wheat, whole wheat and rye.

I use only organic flour from certified farms and mills.

When you open a bag of real flour, that hasn’t been bleached with chlorine like so much of what is sold today, you can smell the earth waiting for you.  I bake bread and sometimes Cinnamon Rolls simply because I like baking bread. I hope you will try my breads. I will only sell something I would serve to my family and my friends.

Although I do not bake cakes or tortes or Ladyfingers... my wife Helen does!

The right to bake and sell from home is part of the Texas Cottage Food law, passed in 2011 and updated for this September, 2013.

There are very specific ways that everything has to be done .

I will be happy to take your request but payment has to be made at my house. After payment delivery can be made, but probably limited to the East End of Galveston Island unless you are want a very large order and have some lead time.
