Amy’s Bread became 20 years old this past week! It warms my heart to celebrate this major milestone, which Baker, Entrpreneur and Author Amy Scherber and her team accomplished by following their passion, working incredibly hard, and making absolutely delicious breads, pastries, baked goods and sandwiches for New Yorkers and our visitors. The number of Amy’s warm baguettes that James and I have eaten straight out of her ovens in Chelsea Market could circle the earth at least
[nggallery id=133] I have admired the work of textile jewelry designer Paz Sintes for a long time. I ran into her recently Bedford Barrow Commerce Village Craft Fair recently, and she had many new designs to show me.
