Long time no post!
Just wanted to say hi and let you know how things have been going here in Kingston, On. Canada.
We had a very successful Hot Cross bun season this past Easter and did not suffer the same consistency issues as last year. Which was a huge releif for me!
It's been a while since I have tried out any new breads at work or at home. Mostly sourdough pizzas!
I was hiring recently, and was messaged by a member of this site "Khadija C", who had recently moved to Kingston and was looking to take on a career in baking. She bakes fequently at home, and will be starting her first shift tonight!
I also hired another frequent home baker, who is familiar with our products, through our cook book, as well as a regular customer in the stores cafe. Her name is Calantha and she had her first shift last night.
I am looking forward to working with the both of them, as they bring a passion and excitement to baking that is not often seen in applicants. It's nice to have staff who are interested in baking personally, rather than just doing it for a job.
