Huston, we have a name for the bakery!
No where near anything that i or anyone has thought of. i was at work a week ago, and looked at a pile of work orders that needed closed and processed. 433 of them. i sighed and said, itsalotta work. the light bulb came on.
texted itsalotta to my son, he like it only played with it, and sent me esalota. which if you put an a where the "o" is, is an italian word for breathe or exhale.
so is the story of the name. pronounced E so lata (long e as in see, long o as in so the lah tah)
now i have to come up with a font to put it in, and the kid is talking they will be building the area that the bakery will go in in a year, or is that be completed in a year. either way time is flying by.
oh yeah, and we plan to exhibit local artist and crfters work, for sale of course.
Cant wait to see progress on your bakery. I just hope its a REAL bakery. I went out to a "bakery" that just opened by my house. I was SOOOOO excited. When I got there. Incredibly disappointing. It looked like a coffee shop, had maybe 5 baked goods (none of which were on the menu board) and was more of a sandwich place with a bad variety of bread. They didn't even have croissants.
ah, we plan on having several feature favorites, like soft chocolate chip cookies, shortbread (real scottish recipe according to granny) cupcakes, some decorated some just plain, hungarian white braided bread, tons of chocolate stuff (i am a chocolate fiend and love making stuff out of chocolate, and every week offer a customer's favorite, have a contest where they enter their favorite recipe, and they get to have theirs for free that week.
a hot chocolate bar, where we'll make you REAL hot chocolate, and i have some interesting recipes i've been working on. i plan on offering limited fresh roasted coffee, roasted that morning and fresh ground.
lots of baked goods, some coffee, hot chocolate, tea just so folks come in and look at the local art/craft items on display.
oh yeah, i make choclate candy too. and decorate cakes, and make hungarian dobos torte that taste just like it does in hungary. at least that is what my husband's mom says, and she is "off the boat".
ooo good luck! The only bakers here are all chain ones, the best bakers are actually in supermarkets! it sounds amazing.
