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.

The week before finals is a dark time for us all, but fear not, there is light (and delicious sandwiches) at the end of the tunnel. The Mount Vernon News noted on their Facebook page today that construction has begun on the Panera Mount Vernon has been courting for a while. The News says you’ll be able to get your soup fix as early as this spring. What other restaurants/stores would you like to see come to our area?
