For those of you who love fresh bread, have you ever considered trying a bread share? Every week you get to try something different, all made with local and organic ingredients. Sasha Coben recently started New Rome Breads, a Nevada City bread share based out of Gaia’s Hearth Kitchen, and every week my family eagerly awaits for our Monday delivery of goodies. The subscription offers a variety of delicious baked goods such as soft sandwich bread, sesame egg bagels, almond flax loaves, challah, potato garlic rolls, spicy herb crackers, plus gluten/dairy free dinner rolls and loaves. The bread share occasionally includes sweet treats as well such as lemon squares, cookies, and baklava. Local and organic ingredients are sourced as much as possible including eggs, grains, and herbs. New Rome Breads also has options for those with dietary restrictions such as gluten-free and dairy free, but please note there is currently a waiting list and the cost does vary. To try the bread share subscription, choosing either a full or half-share ($4/week or $8/week, price varying from $16 or $20 to $32 or 40/month depending on how many weeks), or for more info, contact Sasha at NewRomeBreads@gmail.com. Breads are delivered within Nevada City and Grass Valley only. So, now I’m guessing you’re hungry? Well good thing, because Sasha has offered up one free half-share for the month of September for one lucky Outside Inn blog reader, please post a comment on this blog post on your favorite type of bread and I’ll draw the winner on Friday, August 30th. And the winners from last week’s giveaways…. drum roll please… the Community Canvas winner is Patrick, the Fable Coffee winner is Judy Madden and the Peaceful Valley seed packets go to Cheryl.
