It is with mixed emotions that I announce the end of the experiment that was Jeff's Artisan Bakeshop.
Last year when I decided to open a bakery, I wasn't sure how it would pan out, or how long I could keep it up. With minimal culinary experience beyond home cooking, I knew I had a lot to learn. And learn I did!
The truth is, I never really saw this business as a business. It was always a way to connect with friends and neighbors, learn new kitchen skills, and grow professionally. By these measures, my bakery was a tremendous success, and that is largely thanks to you, my loyal customers.
Who knows what the future holds? Maybe one day I will start a new venture. But for now, I'll be focusing my efforts elsewhere.
Thank you! I couldn't have done this without you.
