ATLANTA -- Alon’s Bakery and Market in Atlanta is one of 55 bakeries participating in The Bread Bakers Guild of America’s 2nd Annual International Bakery Open House on Saturday, October 20. Guild member bakeries in 27 US states and 3 Canadian provinces will take part in the open house, which is part of The Guild’s 2012 event series, The Cereal Series: Going With the Grain.
The Guild-Wide Bakery Open House was conceived as a way to bring communities to their bakeries, as well as to champion the cause for locally made bread.
Both locations of Alo’s Bakery and Market are participating in the open house. From 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Dunwoody location, guests can watch as Owner Alon Balshan bakes flatbread and focaccia in the wood-burning oven and enjoy a tasting of flatbreads, cheese and hummus. Cookies and beverages will also be available to sample during the day. From 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
