Support your local baker

Nashville has its share of farm shares, in which folks subscribe to get a box of produce from their regional farmer once a week or so.  But now local baker Lisa Donovan is introducing a bake share, full of breads, sweets, and other delicious things.  For those who want a little less, there’s the donut share.  She writes,

In the same style of a farmer’s CSA share, we are looking to provide Nashville with the opportunity to purchase a weekly BakeShare that will provide it’s customer’s [sic] with a loaf of daily bread (anything from rustic baguettes to pan de mie to traditional po-boy rolls), one sweet baked item (cakes, tart, strudel, cookies, pudding pies!), one pantry item (cocktail syrups, caramel sauce, granola, jams, preserves, vanilla extract), and one recipe card.

Per the request of several pals, our sideline BakeShare, beginning in the Spring of 2016, is a DonutShare, which will be a bi-weekly (every other week) donut party for you and how ever many friends you want to share your baker’s dozen (and holes!) with. Donut options will range from filled to brioche to croissant-style – the sky is the limit and will be based on the baker’s whims! I’ll be testing some very traditional recipes, making them new again. You will get two flavors in each pickup (half a dozen of each with an extra of which ever one I choose to make up your baker’s dozen), lest you get bored munching on one kind.

There are only 10 spots for each type of share, which run for 6 weeks.
