Tartine Bakery was the first place we went just after landing in San Francisco three and a half years ago and chocolate croissant was the first thing I ever tried there. So It's pretty symbolic to me, that my very last stage in San Francisco was at Tartine's croissants station. Learning about those amazing pastries was beyond my dreams and Caroline took me really deep into this subject, allowed to do some work and provided great feedback. Thank you Fausto @echeverriacroix for this amazing oportunity and letting me learn. #tartinemoments #tartinemornings #croissants #bbga #thebakefeed

My vienoiserie teacher, sweetest @sabethburad . Her magic hands know how to make those dreamy honeycombs in @janethebakery croissants. She even allowed me to touch the sheeter for the first time in my life. My first croissant lesson couldn't have been better ,Thank you for sharing all your tips & tricks 😘 #janethebakery #meetyourbaker

@instajorgen and his rye. Great baker, amazing photographer. Always willing to share panettone molds when one's in need ;) #janethenakery #meetyourbaker

French Bostock with Polish ingredients: black currant jam, poppy seeds frangipane, dried sour cherries soaked in amaretto on a whole grain spelt brioche. Definitely putting it on the menu. One day ;) #bostock #feedfeed #bbga #thebakefeed #recipetesting #recipedeveloping

One of my favourite things in the world: hot mission chocolate with a shot of espresso. My pre market stroll ritual, soul and body warmer. Marshmallow or it didn't happened. Cookie pocket couldn't have been cuter #dandelion #ferrybuilding #hotchocolate #chocolate

My first attempt to what I'll call a country spelt brioche. It's whole grain, made with whey as a liquid, sweetened with honey and it also has some milk thistle oil in it. In my baking I'll want to embrace local, regional Polish products. Mimic country living amongst other artisans to support and turn their labor into some delicious and nourishing breads and pastries. This brioche is only step one. Soon I'll check how does it cope with frangipane in some delicious bostocks :) #wholegrain #bbga #thebakefeed #feedfeed #freshmilled

Seeded whole grain everything these days. On the left whole wheat with 10% rye flour, rye levain and toasted seeds. On the right: rye with same mixture of 10 different seeds. They look pretty intense, but I finally saw a bottom of my grain pantry ✔️ #wholegrain #freshmilled #realbread #bbga #thebakefeed
