Its Sunday afternoon, I have to make 1800 brioche for Monday 6AM for Boston University, maybe I should take a nap....and dream of rack ovens and duchess machines (which I wish I had).

Cheers, Gerard

Gerard - I'm glad to hear that you survived the brioche---You da man!!!

Now you have a day to catch up. You're spoiling yourself.

Things were slow this Friday, we only made 3500 loaves of bread. Waiting for the summer rush.

To All,
I had Sunday off and slept in. How glorious.

Hi Matt 3500 loaves of bread and things are slow I could do with some of that if you new what I made Sat you would have finished early. I hope you did not hand mould them all. All the best from the Scotsman.

By Matt (Matt) on Wednesday, May 12, 1999 - 12:26 am: Edit

Yes most are hand molded. 3500 on a friday bake is almost all wholesale. We just pack in trays and they get loaded on a truck and head to New York City.

The rest of the week we are looking at 800-1500 loaves a day. 80% wholesale.

You Gentlemen are the greatest for doing what you do! I just sent my grandaughter a copy of "The Making of a Chef" to either encourage or discourage her in her ambition to become a chef. What would be your advice to a young lady of seventeen? I'll print it all and give it to her. I'm just a retired person who likes to cook in my kitchen and try out interesting recipes. B.G.

Matt, don't forget your airconditioner.
3500 loaves, thats nothing, I made 4000 last year.

Cheers, Gerard

I've been absent from this board for a while -- been starting a new venture. It's going well. I'm getting paid (well, not much, but we're not even a year old yet). Now I'm on vacation for a whole nine days. Doing what? Nothing!! My parents went to England for two weeks so my husband and I are just living in their house, enjoying the pool and the cable TV (we have neither at our place).

My partner told me I could call in to the shop as much as I want but I have to pay $5 for every time I go in. News flash. I'm not calling her either. Slept till 11:00 three days in a row now. I might make some muffins for breakfast tomorrow or I might not. Well, I'm off to play ball with my dogs!
