Little Wildbranch Bakery! A formal Introduction!
« on: March 02, 2019, 07:00:30 PM »
Hello JH neighbors!
I'd like to properly introduce myself and the work that I do!
My name is Kim Joseph, and I have a small (steadily growing) baking business in JH called Little Wildbranch Bakery. I specialize in sourdough bread, and I also bake cookies, cakes, bars and those are sometimes sourdough too! I'm also teaching monthly workshops on Intro to Sourdough Baking!
My bread leans heavily on whole grains, which helps to achieve that intense sour flavor that many folks love!
Every week I bake two types of sourdough bread: one is a plain multigrain and the other is baker's choice. Baker's choice is dependent upon my infinite list of recipes that I desire to bake, inspiration, seasonal ingredients and allows me to be creative with my bakes.
The multigrain is about 60-65% whole grains, which includes whole wheat, spelt, barley, einkorn, buckwheat and the remainder is bread flour.  I choose to serve multigrain because its better to eat a diverse variety of grains because more grains feed more micro flora in our gut, and as well are high in nutrients and minerals. I want that for myself, so I want that for you! My intent is to create the most nourishing, healthy and delicious bread possible!

Healthy? Bread? YES! Sourdough is easier to digest because it is made with wild yeast, so this means that the sourdough starter/levain/wild yeast has live good for you bacteria in it! (similar to yogurt) During the process of fermentation, the wild yeast breaks down/"eats" some of the gluten, so when you eat the bread some of the work has already been done!This makes digestion easier. It is not gluten free! I do have regular customers who haven't eaten bread in 10 years and joyously eat my bread without any digestive difficulties. Actually, I have difficulty digesting wheat, which is why I began baking sourdough!

I rent space at The Queensboro to do my production! So cool, right?! The Queensboro is teaching me what community really feels like. Their generosity and kindness is humbling, and I couldn't be more pleased to be a part of their space.
I use the prep space when the restaurant opens for dinner service, and I bake the bread in the pizza oven after the kitchen closes.

You can find me at The Queensboro restaurant selling bread on Thursday evenings from 5-8 pm. I always make extra loaves, but they go quickly! It's best to pre-order your loaf to guarantee that you will receive it. You can do that my texting me at 347 553-7708, email me at littlewildbranchbakery@gmail.com or message me on IG or Fb.
I am increasing my production as I can, and will continue to do so as needed. Once Farmspot CSA begins in June, you can find me there with bread and sweet treats on Thursday evenings at St. Marks church on 82nd and 34th ave from 530-815 pm.
The best way to stay up to date is to follow me on Instagram (Little Wildbranch Bakery) and Fb.

I am delighted, humbled and so grateful to be able to provide this beautiful bread to you and your families! I'm looking forward to meeting and getting to know you and bake the world a better place!

Warmly,
Kim Joseph

1) It's so cool that you bake at Queensboro
2) Your breads look INCREDIBLE
3) A bread subscription service is genius

I'm trying to cut down on bread (but mostly likely won't!) but I'll definitely have to get to the Queensboro to try a loaf. Sourdough is a weakness of mine after living in San Francisco!
