WYB is back at the Sidewalk Cafe!
We will be delivering as usual this weekend, September 9-12. I’m not baking next Thursday and Friday to do some long term planning for the bakery. That means no WYB deliveries September 16 and 17. So it’s a good time to stock up. Frozen bread can be thawed at room temperature, then just popped in a hot oven for a few minutes to crisp the crust.

Oops, I realized both Coops are closed tomorrow, Saturday, May 1, after I prepped my bread dough! So my husband is going to sell bread near the Eastside Coop parking lot from around 11 to noon tomorrow (or until bread runs out). Look for the handsome silver-haired man and a silver Prius.☺️ The wonderful people at Delmonico’s will help pick up the slack and sell extra as well.

Hello! Sorry to report I have a broken oven and won’t be delivering tomorrow, Thursday April 29. The oven was supposed to be fixed in time to bake Friday, but the part I need is now delayed until Monday 🤯 I’ve got one working oven and am going to get as much bread out the door Friday thru Sunday as possible, but it may mean slightly later delivery times. It also means I can’t make the sourdough challah this weekend, since it bakes at a significantly lower temp than my other breads. Hope to be back on track next week 🤞

Sorry, no bread tomorrow (Thursday April 22). Back as usual on Friday.
Thanks for everyone’s support about my need to take a break and rethink things ❤️ I’ve got a couple of ideas brewing. One is to shift my schedule to start work at 4:30 am instead of 2:30. (Just writing that drains some tension from my shoulders, ha ha.) This would mean my deliveries wouldn’t start until midday. The other idea is to add an online site to preorder bread with pick ups at Delmonico’s Heritage Butcher on 4th Avenue. This would ensure you get the bread you want and also give me more flexibility. Please let me know what you think about preordering!

I’m taking next week off! After years of solo baking, with no plan other than to make the best bread I can for the most people, it’s starting to feel unsustainable. Since I don’t have time during my baking weeks to think about the future, I’m taking time off to reflect and plan. Delivering today (Sunday) and then back at the usual locations on Thursday, April 15. Thanks for your understanding!❤️

Bread is the star of any bread stuffing, so use bread you love! Over the years I’ve used WYB Country Levain, Salted Rosemary and Walnut Raisin Wheat in this rustic stuffing recipe:
https://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/rustic-bread-stuffing-with-bell-pepper-and-fresh-thyme-236496. When doubling the recipe, I use most of an entire bunch of parsley, most of a bunch of thyme, and fresh sage to taste (add it when you add the parsley). Happy eating! #stuffing #thanksgiving #sourdoughbread #localbusiness #bread #organicfood #artisanbread

About WYB

Thanks for your interest in Wild Yeast Breads, a traditional artisan bakery started in 2015. I create delicious, healthful breads using the best ingredients, including Central Milling organic flour. I mix and shape the breads by hand, using traditional methods and wild yeast (sour dough) starter when appropriate. All my doughs (except the rye) go through long, slow fermentation to improve the flavor and quality.

I deliver bread fresh from my imported French deck ovens between 10 and 11 am Tuesdays-Saturdays. My outlets are Olympia Seafood, Spuds Produce, the Eastside Coop and Yelm Coop.

In addition to traditional French baguettes, I offer a variety of breads, including Country Levain; New York Rye; Sourdough Challah; Focaccia (topped with organic EVOO, onions and rosemary); Broa (a Portuguese-style cornmeal loaf); and Toasted Sesame Wheat.

And here is a link to a profile of Wild Yeast Breads from The Olympian: https://www.theolympian.com/news/business/article182393416.html

When and where can I find your incredible bread with olives?
Hi - do you have any Rye out somewhere? Time for a Reuben with all this corned beef!
I was lucky enough to stumble upon a WYB baguette at Co-op west. It was the best baguette I've ever had. This bread is wildly delicious! Thank you!
Any chance you'll have a spot in Lacey? I love your bread but Oly is out of my way ( I live in Hawks Prarie ) Keep doing what you're doing it's delicious.
Your sesame pita bread was a delicious accompaniment to Merry Wives of Windsor! #wildyeast #animalfire
Great rye bread
Best bread in town.
I'm eating your New York rye right now. Love this bread!
Dear WYB - what days & locations for focaccia?
Is your challah available at Spud's every Friday?
Where to pick up a baguette today? Thx
Praises for your sesame bread. Utterly lust inducing, slathered thickly with good, organic, grass-fed butter!
