awesome market; goodbye thursday; JBB wonderbread?!?

what up sweetie pies

awesome market

first of all – HOLY CRAP THE MARKET ON SATURDAY WAS AWESOME. i sold over 100 loaves in just over 4 hours. ya’ll made me feel like a total rock star. hopefully i’ll see some of you dudes that i met there at Mission Pie.

just to remind ya – i’m @ Mission Pie every Wednesday & Thursday, bread ready @ 5pm. check the bread schedule to see what i’m whippin up.

goodbye thursday
i am happy and sad to tell you that i won’t be working the bar on thursday nights any more. happy cuz this means i can do other things, sad because it probably means i won’t see some of you much. (you drunkards)

i’m still there on tuesday nights from 6pm-2am, so if you have a hankering for some fermented grains, you know where to find me.

JBB wonderbread?!?
“josey, what in the ef?? i’m all about your fancy bread that is so super yummy, and has all sorts of awesome $hit in it, but what about a loaf for the people, a nice sandwich loaf like wonder bread, that i can use for sandwiches and is just some good ol fashioned sandwich bread… how about that you big jerk??”

the rumors are true. and these babies are only $3.50 apiece. i ain’t effin around here dogs – this one is for the people. first run of the jbbwonderbread – this Wednesday @ Mission Pie.
ta ta ta

safe and sound and ready for action

i’m back. did you miss me?

awww, you are so sweet. i missed you too. like, i really missed you.
i thought about you every day. and i cried, cuz i missed you so hard. it was beautiful. and pathetic.
i’m just kidding, don’t flatter yourself, i’m a strong boy, and while i might have missed you a little, i mostly had a totally awesome time doing things like this…
snowboarding for the first time in 10 frikkin years -

riding around totally totally gorgeous idaho on an ATV (it did flip and land on my leg but i’m fine don’t worry about it) -
becoming an “expert sharpener” in SLC –

finding this super spooky cabin in the hills around inverness –

and sighting the most spectacular wild elk in all the land –

now i’m back in sf and ready to party with you dudes. hope to see you soon.

5 loaves, 3 bakeries

i dare you to name them all.

what can i say? i love the $hit out of bread.

<3 josey

p.s. here’s the answer key…

center loaf: Outerlands levain
lower left: sesame levain from Brick Maiden in Pt. Reyes
upper left: 100% spelt from Full Circle in Penngrove
upper right: Power Bread from Full Circle
lower right: sourdough from Full Circle

wednesdays AND thursdays at Mission Pie?!? are you effing crazy?????

no, i ain’t crazy.

i’m pumped. like jump naked-off-a-big-cliff-into-a-river pumped.

and so are you. cuz this means way more delicious bread for you bread eating crazies.
for real, i’m all worked up over this, and i’d love for you to get worked up with me.
is it happening yet?
what about now???
also, check this out – you can just walk your pretty little @ss into Mission Pie any Wednesday or Thursday at 5pm and just pick up that bread – without pre-ordering. check the bread sched to know what you’re getting yourself into.
just to let you know – the past few weeks i’ve sold out of bread by 7:30… but you’re the type of person that likes to take risks like this, am i right?
yeah, that’s right, you’re a crazy risk-taking bread-loving back-flipping mama jama:

and ain’t nothing gonna stop you from getting that bread, if you so desire.
also, one other thing that is gettin baked up that i’d like to alert your sweet sweet attention to – a collaboration between Josey Baker Bread and Bi-Rite Market as part of Meatpaper’s spring event series on the SFMOMA rooftop.
ohhh yes.
anyway, i’ll definitely see some of you beautiful folks in the coming wednesday and thursday evenings at Mission Pie, and i can’t wait for it.
as always, THANK YOU for believing in me, and for eating my bread. i couldn’t do it without you all.


p.s. this is what we do to our friends on their birthdays:

a glimpse into the early morning session (plus a halloween bonus)

ya give a few boys a sewing machine and a halloween and this is what you get…

anyway -

monday nights and tuesday mornings are some of my favorites. i drive over to oakland monday night with a bunch of tubs full of dough, such as these:

amazingly i always find a parking spot right in front of pizzaiolo, lug the dough tubs in, and get to work shaping the loaves. if i’m good and hungry, the cool kind folks gimme some super delectable grub, usually a badass pizza.

once i’ve done my work and the little chubby bread loaves are all good and in tip top shape, i stick em in the fridge, and go sleep on a friend’s couch. come 5 am my silly little cell phone alarm clock is waking me up, and i’m back at pizzaiolo, cooling down the oven to get it ready for the breadsies.

this last tuesday mr. scott kline came along to snap some photos. he set up lights and everything, and it made me feel kind of like a movie star. here are a few of the shots he snapped:

o yea, we got cinnamon raisin craziness comin outta the oven at Mission Pie at 5 pm tonight. come come come along if you’re lookin for a good time.

two rumors

rumor one: i just want to be sure ya’ll know that i’m not going to be around the week of March 14.

where will you be mr josey baker?

very good question!

first i’ll be roadtrippin with my homies brendan and lana…

to utah for some snowy spring time adventures. o hell yes.
then i’m gonna wander off into the woods for a little cabin getaway with my sweet sweet sweet lady…
oooooooh baby baby baby.

rumor two: rumor has it that i might start baking at mission pie two days a week… this is just a rumor for now though, so don’t you dare go tellin everybody about it.

and those are the two rumors.

rumor three: HA! I SAID TWO RUMORS AND NOW I’M WRITING THREE I AM A SNEAKY LITTLE BAKER! anyway, this is just another rumor… josey baker bread might be experimenting with some new baked goods for you all. again, just a rumor, so don’t go tweeting or facebooking about it, cuz i don’t want people to get all excited before the hen has laid it’s egg, before the ship has sailed the sea, before the bagel has been baked.


kisses sexy babies.

<3 josey

p.s. food coloring can do strange things to a man…
