Will Bake for Food - 2011
Last year, sometime mid-October, my friend Jenny Miller (of Rainy Day Gal) called me up and asked if I thought we could pull off a little fundraiser. We'd only met a couple of months earlier at a food blogging event, and even though we didn't spend a lot of time together, I knew she was a smart cookie. I liked her, she's cool. When she pitched the idea of a bake sale, I knew I was in.
Will Bake for Food was born - a frantic dash to a finish line in just 3 short weeks, we sold and collected and raised enough to surprise even the nonprofit we were supporting. And then we went into hibernation until a couple of months ago.
Here it is, a few days until our second Will Bake for Food event, and it's a little less frantic but no less scary. Still happy to have my partner in crime, and now surrounded by both alumni from last year's sale and a ton of new faces (check them out!!) who I can't wait to meet.
This year promises to be bigger than last year. Even I'm taking time off from logistics to bake - always a savory fool, I'll be making bacon scallion biscuits from some lovely home-cured pork belly, courtesy of Larry (@djpegleg) and Kristen (@ramerliang).
Please join us for this remarkable event and help us make it bigger and better than last year!
