Although you can buy a single loaf it seems he does CSB (Community Supported Bread). You pay $20 a month and get a loaf a week. There's a Josey Baker's dozen if you sign up for 13 weeks ($60)

I'm not sure how often he does this, but recently he used the wood fired oven at bake a batch. He seems to bake some bread using the ovens at Mission Bread on Wednesday.

Tonight he is giving away 100 loaves of bread from 5-8 pm (or as long as they last) at Mission Pie

black pepper parmesan
olive levain
seed feast levain
cinnamon raisin
whole wheat levain

I am really digging the blog. He seems ... dare I say it ... old school Chowhound. It was a joy to read his visit to a great bread baker in Vermont where he downs half of a one pound loaf in the drive way of the bakery. He photos the bread baking and writes "look at these gorgeous chubby beauties in the oven, just getting all hot and excited"

If his bread matches his passion, I see a real bakery in his future.

The photos look good on the website. Anyone tried it?
