Recently named "one of America's best bread wizards" by Esquire Magazine, bakery owner Ryan Morgan knows his way around a ball of dough.

And while he doesn't have a bakery shop that you can visit in person to enjoy his finely crafted breads, you most likely have had a taste at a number of different local markets and restaurants. 

Finding your favorite Sixteen Bricks baked goods may have become a little more challenging after coronavirus restrictions have been mandated, but the bakery still wants to make sure you're getting the crusty, carby, buttery, flakey tastebud love that you deserve. 

Sixteen Bricks is hosting weekly Saturday bake sales, where you can pick up your pre-ordered selections and enjoy them at home. Or in the car, or perhaps a park, etc. 

The menu changes slightly each week, but typically includes a selection of breads like baguettes and ciabatta, along with a variety of other delicious baked goods and pastries ranging from brown butter cookies or banana bread to ham and cheese croissants and savory danishes.

Pastries come in either six or 12 packs, but if you're in the mood to try a little bit of everything, the bakery offers assorted pastry boxes. The bake sale also has bread starter kits available if you'd like to bake your own bread at home — visit their Facebook page for videos of the steps involved. 

To reserve your order for this weekend's bake sale pick-up (April 11), have your order emailed to [email protected] by noon on Thursday, April 9. After sending your order email, they will respond with payment guidelines. Pick-up is at 10 a.m. Saturday morning at 4760 paddock Road in Bond Hill.
