Making Chocolate Chip Challah this week (still not a fan, but happy to bake it for y’all ). Below is the Friday Oven Schedule: 7am: Croissants out of oven 8am: Sourdough out of oven 11am: Hummus ready 12pm: Challah out of oven 6pm: Closed 7:56pm: Shabbat Good Shabbas!


Our Thursday special sounds simple, I know, Sourdough Grilled Cheese with Tomato Bisque for $10, but damn is it good. Its just one of those timeless cravable combinations that’s crispy, and warm, and savory, and so satisfying. Chomp!

Beautiful crumb on our Sourdough Jewish Rye. It’s got flax, onion, & caraway inside, with corn grit on the outside. By far my favorite bread we make. Out of the oven at 8am. Or pick one up at your local South Florida Whole Foods.

They used to be addicted to the boob, then pacifiers, then bottles of warm oat milk and maple, and then blankets. Now it’s all about the Crunchy Granola 🤘

Here is what our bread looks like when the prep is right, the mother is right, the water meter is working, the mixer is working, the mix is right, the air conditioners are working, the fermentation is right, the shape is right, the air conditioner is still working, the cooler is working, the proof is right, the score is right, the loader is working, the steam injectors are working, the vent is working, the burner is working, and the bake is right. Wonders of Wonders.

Most Frequently Asked Questions about our bread at Whole Foods: Q ) Is everything in the case from Zak The Baker? A ) No! Even though my face and name is all over the case, only bread in a Zak The Baker bag is baked fresh at our bakery each morning. Everything else baked by Whole Foods. This is why we started putting our bread in bags to make sure people know for sure it’s our bread. Q ) Why is your bread always running out in the afternoon/evening? A ) Because we don’t sell day old bread, we bake enough for the day, and deliver a fresh batch the next morning. Q ) What about Pembroke Pines? A ) Whole Foods gave us the green light, ball is in our court. Should we come?

Throwback Thursday to the 3 deck manual steam oven in Ken Lyon’s Hialeah commissary. We could only bake 24 breads an hour, and the stone in the middle deck had a massive crack that normally swallowed a few loves; but this was still a major upgrade from the garage, and I’m totally grateful that Ken let me in 🙏 P.S. I was the one eating Drew’s ice cream in the walk in when I was alone doing the night bakes 🤗

Totally caught these guys fangirling at Whole Foods Boca. They zoomed by, head down, totally red, pure giggles. Regrouped near prepared foods, more giggles. Did a complete loop of the store, came by a second time, still red faced and paralyzed, finally called them out 😊 much love, Boca.

When I decided to make the bakery kosher, I really had no clue what I was getting into. One thing I quickly discovered was it’s really hard to find good kosher cheese in Miami, bummer. After 5 years of moaning about it, I finally figured out how to get a better variety of super duper kosher cheese (CY )! This one is a Ricotta Pecorino AKA Ricotta Salata. It’s made from re-cooking the whey from sheep milk, then pressed and salted for about 90 days. I’m thinking of shaving some over a chopped green salad. Maybe a special next week. 🤗 Fun.

Taught my baby girl how to ride a bike today. She may not remember this moment when she grows up, but I always will 😊

Working on a nova platter for the cafe. It works nicely with toasted Sourdough Jewish Rye. Maybe for the June menu?

I’m still fundamentally against putting chocolate in bread, but I have to admit, they look great. 👊 @wide_eyed_cat Good Shabbas

May 2019

Personally, I’m not a big fan of putting chocolate in bread, but it gives Adina ( @wide_eyed_cat )way too much joy to say no. Chocolate Chip Challah has been mixed, out of the oven tomorrow at NOON. Enjoy.

May 2019

Hopefully it rains today, would go nicely with today’s special - Tomato Bisque and Sourdough Grilled Cheese $10. So satisfying, think we might do this every Thursday. Chomp!
