Now Available for Pre-Order: The Hot Bread Kitchen Cookbook

9780804186179

Click on the cover to peek inside the cookbook!

After many requests for our unique recipes, we are thrilled to announce The Hot Bread Kitchen Cookbook is on its way! At first glance Hot Bread Kitchen may look like many other bakeries. Multigrain sandwich loaves, sourdough batards, baguettes, and Parker House rolls line the glass case up front in the small shop. But so, too, do sweet Mexican conchas, rich m’smen flatbreads, mini bialys sporting a filling of caramelized onion, and chewy Indian naan. In fact, the breads are as diverse as the women who bake them—because the recipes come from their homelands.

Hot Bread Kitchen is a bakery that employs and empowers immigrant women, providing them with the skills to succeed in the culinary industry. The tasty corollary of this social enterprise is a line of authentic breads you won’t find anywhere else. Featured in some of New York City’s best restaurants and carried in dozens of retail outlets across the country, these ethnic gems can now be made at home with The Hot Bread Kitchen Cookbook.

Pre-order your copy from IndieBoundAmazon, Barnes & Noble or your local independent retailer, and be the first to enjoy our favorite breads from your home oven in October.

Update on East Harlem

Yesterday’s explosion shook our community in East Harlem both literally and figuratively. Our bakery and incubator were no exception.

At 9:31am, an explosion destroyed two apartment buildings less than 500 feet from our bakery. We felt the blast shake our facility underneath the Metro North tracks and feared that there had been a trail derailment. Our staff and the staff of La Marqueta were the first on the scene; they arrived before the fire department to assist rubble-covered victims escape further harm.

Throughout the day our staff worked to support rescue efforts: giving out particle masks, helping disseminate information, and anything else that the community needed. In the bakery, the staff prepared for utility shutdowns and delivery contingencies. By 3:00pm, with everyone accounted for, we closed the bakery.

You don’t hire staff because of their courage or deep humanity–it already takes a special team to do what we do–but I learned yesterday that we have some incredibly heroic individuals on staff and am proud of how they responded.

Today our heart goes out to the East Harlem community. Many of us live in the neighborhood and all of us are friends with those who do. Hot Bread Kitchen will continue to support our neighbors and first responders that will be working here in the weeks and months ahead.

At 6:00am this morning we started baking again; fresh breads were delivered at 10:15am. The bread doesn’t wait, and, in light of disaster, sometimes continuing as normal is the only choice.

Our admin offices are closed today, Thursday, March 13, as is Hot Bread Almacen. While we return to normal after yesterday’s events, please reach out to staff by email and stay apprised of new developments by following us on Facebook or Twitter. We anticipate reopening tomorrow, Friday, March 14th.

Thank you to our friends, supports, and customers for the outpouring of support.

With a heavy heart,

Jessamyn
