Sun and Sprouts: Day 33
This week again I was surprised with 2 boxes of sprouted bread from Alvarado St. Bakery. So I guess you’ll be hearing me talk a lot about them. The unique thing about Alvarado St. Bakery is that they sprout their grains and seeds all at the plant with the use of solar power. Solar powered sprouts? Yes, I’ve found another deeply passionate baking company!
I gave Michael Girkout, Director of Marketing, a call for an interview. I wanted to learn more about how they are depending on solar power, how the red kitty Greta was in charge of food safety, and most importantly, why they are not located on Alvarado St. Hear more about this interview on Podcast #5.
Least to say, I enjoyed their sprouted onion poppy seed bagel with ricotta cheese and pesto, and had a wonderful day eating their sprouted whole wheat bread.
