THE winter CSA for your bread box is BACK with Scratch Baking's Loaf of the Week club. Beginning on January 9, 2015 for 8 carb-filled weeks, Scratch Baking in Milford is kicking-off their third annual "Loaf of the Week" club. Participants, or "loafers," receive a surprise bread and spread each week, paired with a recipe.
Scratch Baking's manager Alex Malaspinas chalked the success of the program up to Scratch's community-minded approach:
As we are all gearing up for another healthful year, most of us attempt to do ourselves better through nutrition and better living in resolutions for the upcoming year. Scratch Baking takes some of the guesswork out of the equation by offering a fun and conscious community enrichment program. Each new year we offer 8 weeks of bread accompanied by a paired spread to really annunciate flavors in every loaf as well as incite new ideas in all bread and food lovers.
In years past, Scratch's Loaf of the Week baked fresh loaves of brioche paired with a cinnamon raisin butter, ciabatta with pesto, and rosemary focaccia with a lemon curd. The cost to become a Loafer is $100 for 8 weeks of breads and spreads.
To sign up for Scratch's Loaf of the Week club, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 203.301.4396 and specify Friday or Saturday pick-up along with your name, phone number, and email address.
