Pitching a Loaf: My Podcast is Live! Day 38

Yes, you read that correctly. Today, I dug into a whole loaf of Alvarado St. Bakery sprouted multi-grain bread, sat back, and listened to our Pitching a Loaf podcast. It’s taken us 6 weeks to produce and launch this new product of ours, and I was joyfully lavishing in the rewards of my team’s hard work. The best part of this podcast journey? Is getting the bakers I interviewed to share their passionate stories with me.

Today, on Episode 6 (coming soon!), I interviewed Arif, a wholesale baker from Canada, who has had issues with their artisan bread bursting on its sides. He complained that this issue has been causing a high waste issue for the past 2 years, and he used the recommended tools that I suggested on the podcast to solve his problems.

We managed to get him to reduce his waste by 12%, increased outputs and reduce energy consumption in the oven. Don’t believe in thermal profiling of your product? Listen to episode 6 and hear Arif’s testimonial.

Slices of hearty Alvarado St. Bakery Multi-grain bread with roasted vegetables on ricotta and with almond and cashew nut butter. Also, thanks to the American Society of Baking for this wonderful loaf of acknowledgment for my involvement as a session chair at this year’s Baking Tech.

Now, back to eating 14 slices of sprouted multi-grain bread. Honestly, this bread made me so full today, I could hardly finish all 14 slices. But I did it. I ate all 5 slices at once at dinner with chicken noodle soup (without the noodle – which got the disapproving nod from my mom)! And I will live to tell this story.
