You know what the the 1st of October means?!?  Time to dial up that spirit, beginning with the fall variety and quickly followed by the holiday variety.  We’ve got just the thing to help!

Join us for an evening of spiced cake with pumpkin buttercream frosting, a plethora of decorating tools, plus our expert tutelage…not to mention old friends, new friends, bubbly, cheese and crackers.  We’re thinking we’ll be ready to face the end of 2016 after a night like this!

$130 is your ticket to fall spirit (all included), so RSVP now to reserve a spot.  Tell all of your friends too!  We’re hosting a class in San Francisco on October 9th and Berkeley on October 15th, so the bay can’t keep you from spirit!!  Note: this is a basics class, so if you can’t begin to decorate a cake, but would like to learn, this is the class for you!  Here are the details:

The Bakery Life: Countdown to Thanksgiving

10 Nov

Happy November!  We’ve been getting in to the holiday spirit via smells of baking pumpkin, apples, and butternut squash.  The weather helps too with it dipping into the blustery 50’s at night!

If you want to leave dessert to us, we highly suggest that you pre-order your goodies for pick up the two days before Thanksgiving.  The earlier the better!  While we plan to have desserts on hand these two days for last minute grabs, they may go quickly.

If you plan on doing it all yourself, we can help with frozen bake-at-home helpers, such as pie shells, pie dough, and unbaked buttermilk biscuits.  Shhhh…we won’t tell.

Here’s our lineup:

Raising Dough: Girls on the Run, September 2015

1 Sep

We’re excited to get movin’ this month by featuring Girls on the Run as our September Raising Dough organization.  Each month our Raising Dough Campaign brings a collaborative, neighborhood approach to raising a little money and awareness for a great, locally represented organization.  Our friends and neighbors drop their change in our donation box, we match the donations, and we plan a group volunteer event (whenever possible) so that we can experience the organization beyond handing over a check.

Girls on the Run is focused on inspiring adolescent girls to live a ‘joyful, healthy, and confident’ life.  It’s about living without boundaries and going after dreams.  Running plays a big role in teaching these life skills.

Let’s Raise Dough for this wonderful cause – even pennies count in our donation box!  If you’d like to get involved in a bigger way, here’s a blog post about how one person did just that.  Start running!!!

 

The Bakery Life: It’s Starting to Look Like Flour & Co!

26 Aug

The construction sight at 1398 University Avenue in Berkeley is soon going to undeniably look and feel like Flour & Co.  We were seeing major hints of the warm colors and earthy tones this past week.  Wood seemed to be the week’s theme.

Our wood tables, bread shelves, and baked goods case were delivered by our carpenter extraordinaire, Pascal’s Workshop.

Bread shelves minus warm out of the oven bread

Picture it filled monkey bread, toasty tarts, and good old buttermilk biscuits

Ryan spent the majority of the weekend refurbishing wood tables.  We also sanded and sealed some long wood planks for a dining room design element (you won’t be able to miss it!).

Sanded, oiled, and ready for dough

you will have to wait and see

Garret at California Epoxy spent the last few weeks refinishing the floors.  They are looking dynamite!

2015-08-21 15.43.41

Oh, but that’s not all.  Lights are coming on, water is being plumbed, walls are being painted, the credit card is getting more exercise than it can handle, and we started interviewing our future teammates today.

With September approaching, we’re going to be intensely working the next few weeks to ready the space, people, and baked goodies.  Before you know it, you’ll smell cinnamon swirl bread baking in our ovens!  Can’t wait to share it.

The Bakery Life: Cool Caffeination on Tap at Flour & Co Berkeley

23 Aug

Does this not make you want to drink cold brew by the gallon??

The Growler of Cold Brew available in the near future at Flour & Co Berkeley

The Growler of Cold Brew available in the near future at Flour & Co Berkeley

I was excited when I opened the mail yesterday to find these.  We’ll fill them and refill them, on demand, with our oh-so-smooth Stumptown Cold Brew.  Okay — we have a ways to go before you can fill ‘er up, but when you can, it will be a beautiful thing.

Cold Brew

Need I say more??  Coming this fall at Flour & Co Berkeley.

Progress pictures coming next!
