NOTE: If this is your first Breadness Buzz, or if you've been part of our tribe but missed earlier posts, visit the Breadness Buzz Archive here and catch up on this content written especially for you. It's a great way to meet like-minded artisan sourdough aficionados and be part of this journey I started back in 2016. And now for this week's Buzz... 

Merry Crisp-mas!

What's this? It's Santa with a Chocolate Chill in one hand and a GingerBreadness Artisan Sourdough Crisp in the other! That's right... Santa's demanding schedule got even more so this year so we elevated the "milk & cookies" custom to another level! Our made-to-order Chocolate Chill is a sugar-free, dairy-free "chocolate milk" drink that customers tell us tastes like melted chocolate ice cream. And our wintertime classic GingerBreadness has been made into delicate flatbread Crisps for a healthy snack on the go. Come to the bakery this weekend and try the combo for yourself. There's only so many bags of GingerBreadness Crisps on the rack; when they're gone, they're gone until next December! And don't forget to share some with Santa Sunday night...

Healthy Holidays!

Winter holidays are great but it's so easy to to go overboard on all the party food, elaborate dinners, desserts and beverages. At Random Acts of Breadness, all of our offerings are made with the best ingredients and true dedication to the art of small-batch food. The result is food that tastes amazing and is nourishing as well. When food is nourishing, you eat less, you feel better, and you have more energy to play during this festive time of year! 

It all starts with our organic, artisan sourdough breads made the time-honored European way. Eaten with a healthy fat like raw butter, olive oil, avocado, NuttZo nut/seed butter, or cheeses from southern Europe, these breads become resistive starches that feed the friendly bacteria in your gut. Our Raw Butter is easier to digest than pasteurized butter (and you can taste the difference, too). Our Raw Honey Spreads from Napa not only taste great, but they're made on a bee farm powered entirely by solar power. We source our Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oils from Ojai Olive Oil Company, and they source their Balsamic Vinegars from Modena, Italy. We carry 3 additional Balsamics from Modena (via Seattle) and they are organic, thicker and packaged in artfully-designed bottles. Our Fresh Tapenades are made and delivered to us personally by Lisa in Pasadena. And you won't find a more diverse array of "jamazing" flavor combinations than Artisan Jams by Laura Ann.

Speaking of... Laura Ann brought us a NEW FLAVOR: Lo-Fi Cherry Chai! Come taste this holiday-inspired jam this weekend. 

When you give a Random Act of Breadness, you're also contributing to the longevity of your gift recipient. Pretty cool!

From Switzerland with Love...

We received an order from a lady in Switzerland! She found us by searching for sourdough bread gifts in Los Angeles. We were the first non-sponsored "organic" listing on the page ("organic" here means occurring naturally without paying for a better position in Google or other search engines). She had us ship a 3-loaf Breadness Box and a Signature Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil to her folks who live in the LA area. Initially I had a question about the order and e-mailed the customer for clarification. I ended up connecting with her sister who lives in Hawaii! From there I received an e-mail from the customer in Switzerland who shared some information about her grandmother, Lee, who set the land speed record for a woman at the Bonneville Salt Flats in 1965. And Lee's husband was Craig Breedlove, the worlds fastest land speed record holder!

Every Day with You (Is Christmas for Me)

Encore... Here's a song I wrote, arranged, recorded and produced for the holiday season. It's called Every Day with You (Is Christmas for Me). Tap/click the above image to listen to the song and enjoy the video I put together to bring a visual element to the message.  I think you'll fall in love with the amazing vocal by Amy ( and be transported to a world where people share a common wish for love all year round.
