Welcome to my kitchen
Well, more like two kitchens, one that we built in our pre-existing garage, converted into a catering studio, and one in our personal home space that you see above. We live in a geodesic dome we have always referred to as "the round house." The dome remodel is a long story I will write more about later.
Most of my life, I have been baking breads and pastries with organic and unbleached ingredients. I grew up in a big family that made everything fresh from scratch, gardened, farmed and traveled. I learned to enjoy cooking foods from every culture. Sweets were not something we ate a lot of but I loved the science of experimenting, creating and working together in the kitchen. We also explored natural alternatives for food causing allergies, food colors and flavors.
The Round House Bakery began as a fundraising street side bake sale and grew into a full time wedding and catering studio. As our business grew my vision also grew to reach bakers on a personal level, explore more recipes that I didn't have time for running a full time bakery.
I am excited to finally share from the bits of what I have learned in this journey of natural baking, uncover myths and secrets for some of my staple recipes. I truly believe "natural" baking is so much easier to grasp if you are fully equipped with the right recipes and directions. I will personally share some of my own methods that I've developed with moisture/flavor control in unbleached baking that brings back the lost flavors in baked goods that commonly made with bleached flour and sugar cane. I am inspired by both American and European recipes and developed my own hybrids that bring together the best of both methods. I am even more excited about our workshops that will bring our local community of bakers together regardless of your style so that you can take away whatever you want to learn and apply it to your home or bakery!
Love and peace,
Our website is currently under construction and being updated in the meantime. Our workshop studio is reopening in 2018! Dates to be announced.
