Bread is one of my ultimate comfort foods. I know I’m not alone! (Come on…I know you love it, too!) I have warm memories of my father baking bread at home as a child. Just thinking about it, I can almost smell it. They’d send me to school with a thick slide of home-baked bread in my lunch bag, along with my carrot sticks, strawberry Fruit Roll-Up, and cinnamon-spiced apple slices. Why didn’t they make me a sandwich? I never regularly ate sandwiches – besides peanut butter sandwiches – until I was in my 20s. Old childhood food texture aversions run strongly in me. Ha!
But, I digress…
I recently discovered NYC Bakery Direct by The Bread Gal Bakery, a woman-owned NYC-area business. For the past 25+ years, they have been providing wholesale baked goods from NYC down though Philly. Their roster is rather impressive, having served at New York University, the US Open, Google, and Princeton University, among others.
They have recently started taking orders on their website for home deliveries, and their offerings are rather impressive! Their menu is expansive, offering various bread loaves, rolls, muffins, and pastries. There are vegan options, as well as gluten-free options, making it easy to satisfy anyone.
They are currently offering delivery of their baked – to – order goods! Whether you are still sticking to online ordering of food due to this pandemic, or if you are just looking for the right loaf of bread or box of croissants, New York Bakery Direct has you covered. Check out their FAQ Page for the more specific details on deliveries, which are available in NYC (Manhattan, Brooklyn, and select zip codes in Queens), Northern NJ, and The Hamptons. The minimum cost to order is $45 with a $4.95 delivery fee, with free shipping over $90 for deliveries in NYC and Northern NJ! Hint hint: Use coupon code seeksatiation for a complimentary order of six Brioche Burger Buns when you check out. 🎫 If you make a large order but realize, “Okay, maybe I need to lay off the rest of this bread for a day or two!”, products keep well in the freezer for up to three months. Perfect!
I had the pleasure of sampling many products from NYCBD’s menu. If you did not catch my Cheesy Scrambled Egg & Tomato Sandwich recipe from last week, check it out, as it features NYCBD’s pillowy and delicately sweet Brioche Burger Buns. Their Fresh Pizza Shells hold up well in the oven, producing a nice crisp crust, which I tested at 450°F for 10 minutes; I baked a few pizzas and luckily avoided the dreaded “soggy middle” issue that comes with some pre-made pizza shells. Their White Chocolate French Toast Bread is…is…so good I can’t even find the words. And their muffins? The perfect morning treat…or, late-night snack, let’s be honest. 😉
I think I’ve come to the point where I’ll let the photos speak for themselves!
