Who sparked your love of making?
My mother inspired my love of baking. I grew up in a home that always smelled of fresh-baked bread!
What is your favorite product or piece you’ve made lately?
Most recently I’ve made a German style vollkornbröt from 100% wholegrain spelt that has a wonderfully complex flavor. Also, my pumpkin tea cake has been a hit in my own home and around my customers’ tables.
What inspires you during the holiday season?
I enjoy all the sights and scents of the season. Time with family in front of the fire is my favorite way to spend the holidays. I love to make bread and other baked goods that I envision help to bring people together around a shared table.
What other vendor are you excited to see/shop this season?
I’m excited to visit the Fino Artisan Chocolate booth this year! They’re the only bean-to-bar chocolate handcrafted in Sacramento. Perfect for gifts.
What is your favorite holiday food or recipe and why?
Favorite foods are often linked to cherished memories. I’ve always loved the Bûche de Noël (Yule log) that my mother made for many years. Our family first enjoyed this holiday tradition in Brussels, Belgium, one very special Christmas in my childhood. Scottish shortbread is another holiday favorite for me. I look forward to offering a very special fresh-milled whole grain version of this buttery treat this season.
