Savory Treats And A New Demo Kitchen at Amy’s Bread
Since I moved to New York City, Amy’s Bread has been everywhere I need it to be. Our first apartment in the city was near the Hell’s Kitchen location, where we first fell in love with Amy’s white bean purée sandwich. We often do our food shopping on Bleecker Street, stopping for a pick-me-up chocolate twist and a cup of tea at Amy’s on the corner with Leroy. Most often, however, we pick up a baguette or cupcakes for Sunday Family Dinner at Amy’s Chelsea Market location.
I spoke with Amy last week, and it was exciting to learn about all the innovations that have sprung up from the new configuration of her facilities. Founded in 1992, Amy’s Bread has long been known for luscious cakes, cupcakes, scones, and other sweet treats. Now we can also enjoy small savory snacks in the bakery.
Spring is a particularly fun time at Amy’s Bread. Easter and Passover provide Amy and her team ample opportunity to make special holiday treats. Hot cross buns and bunny shaped breads fill baskets in the bakeries. Amy employs two cookie decorators during the season to make beautiful Easter cookies. Amy’s almond and chocolate macaroons, along with a flourless chocolate nut torte, are gobbled up during Passover. And the best part is that everyone can enjoy all of these freshly made products regardless of our religious beliefs.
“Making bread is a fascinating process,” Amy said. “So while you may not want to bake bread every day, there is something very wonderful about learning how it is made and being able to feed your family and friends with something you made with your own hands.” This reason is the very idea behind the Amy’s Bread demo kitchen and bread making classes. The lucky part is that if your bread turns out like mine, you can just bring home a loaf from Amy’s, and your friends and family, none the wiser, will be mightily impressed by your new found skill.
Visit Amy’s Bread this weekend to pick up seasonal favorites, and any other time for fresh artisanal breads, pastries and savory snacks.
