David Morris, longtime Berkeley resident and founder of The Bread Garden bakery of Berkeley, has passed away at his new home in Paso Robles, CA.
Two years ago, David decided to relocate and purchased a store front in the old downtown district of Paso Robles in the heart of northern San Luis Obispo County wine country. After securing the building, it was discovered to have been the home of Paso Robles' original bakery. David brought some of his longtime staff to Paso with him and had been open for business since last fall. His bakery passes to longtime manager Sandy Luong, who will continue to operate the PRB.
David was a kind man of many interests and was a dedicated baker. Long before Continental style bakeries became the rage, this poster remembers being treated to David's "real bread" baked in a full size antique woodburning kitchen range. He realized his dream of sharing his breads with a wider audience through hard work and ingenuity, and passed on his love of good bread to many at home and around the world.
