Fresh Bread on Campus

Fresh Bread on Campus

Fresh from an NCA kitchen, senior Charlotte Benz is baking her own bread — and it could be yours! After studying abroad in Copenhagen last semester, Charlotte was inspired by her host mother who baked at least twice a week. She loved it while she was there and has adopted the practice here at school.

The bread Charlotte is making is influenced by Danish sourdough. It is a rustic, crusty loaf, as you can see in this picture.


She charges $9 a boule, $5 a half boule and sells rolls (plain & raisin) for $1.50 a piece or 3 for $4.

You can find her next to the bookstore this Sunday selling a selection of breads and homemade scones from around 10:30-12:30pm! Don’t miss it.
