Terry and I slogged many hours together catering and cooking at Project Open Hand, where we met in San Francisco in the early 1990’s. She is a dear friend and like me has been in an out of the food industry over the years.
Currently she is back in and has started a baking company with her friend Cindy Schultz called Fresh Bite.
For you Bay Area readers you can try their wares at the Underground Market in Oakland, the Lafayette Farmers market and soon Market Hall in Rock Ridge (while you are there pick up some of their lima bean skordalia, it’s the best!). Additionally they will be at the Spice of Life Festival at the Gourmet Ghetto in Berkeley on October 17th. Make sure to check them out!
We are working on a business plan to develop a commercial kitchen that will house Fresh Bite but will also allow for space to rent out to other food businesses. We are also working on a marketing campaign for the Bite Club through the Berkeley Schools.
