010 – Gerry Newman, Albemarle Baking Company


11295919_10205311516441112_6644931381684364286_n Welcome to Episode 10. I’m talking with Gerry Newman of Albemarle Baking Company, and I’m not sure who got more out of this conversation, him or me! I’m an amateur bread baker from way back, no-knead method, but of late my anxiety over fallen dough has kept me from this worthwhile past time. Gerry gave me tips on overcoming this, in addition to regaling me with stories of his apprenticeship, his passion for baking, and his love of Limpa. What is Limpa? You’ll have to listen to find out. Gerry has been at the helm of ABC for almost 20 years, and there’s good reason why you can find his baguettes on almost every restaurant table in town. He’s a fantastic storyteller, a sweet man, and a Charlottesville treasure. Hope you’ll listen. This one is great folks!
