How do the French say that something is dreadfully long? They say it’s like “un jour sans pain”, like a day without bread (pain doesn’t mean pain, it means bread). And if you’re going to make or eat bread, make it darn good bread. We’re here to give you a hot tip! Did you know that Bloomington is home to Indiana’s only wood-fired brick-oven bakery? Every Saturday, Muddy Fork Bakery loads up a truck of beautiful loaves and croissants made with organic grains, including wheat, rye, kamut and spelt. These warm loaves then get to the consumer via either local grocer, Bloomingfoods or at the Bloomington Farmers Market. We chat with co-owner Katie Zukof about the weekly rhythm of baking breads and granola in a wood fired oven, as well as the offering of classes to teach you the art of bread making. We also learn how the desire to have a sustainable, family business and years of hard work led them to create Muddy Fork Bakery. It’s another inspiring and satisfying (in your tummy) episode! Don’t skip At Home in Bloomington. It will make your day feel like “un jour sans pain”.
Also, we throw back, way back to At Home in Bloomington Episode 1, Switchyard Park. By the time you read this, Switchyard Park has been opened! While there is still a lot of work ahead, one of the first uses of the park will be the Winter Farmer’s Market starting in December 2019. Today’s guest, Muddy Fork Bakery will be there. Will you? (Yes, it’s indoors!) And in our REAL-List segment, stressed out by your credit score? We offer some tips on the best resources to turn to for straightening out credit woes.
