Hi, everyone, this is me, the bread guy. I'd like to use a little of the space here to tell you about my new bakery, its mission statement and how I want to see it develop.
First, though, let me thank everyone who has already found me and my breads. Your encouragement and enthusiastic reception feed my soul just as I hope to feed yours with my chiabattas, puglieses, rusticos and baguettes.
In the flyleaf of a book my beautiful wife got me, she wrote the following dedication' "...I wanted you to have this book as a small thank you for this last year--and also as a symbolic wink and a big grin towards the coming ones. Perhaps our watchwords should be Simplicity, Passion and, of course, Love."
Pan D' Les is my answer to her thoughts and wishes and I dedicate and contribute my success to her.
My logo, designed for me by the talented Luis Carlos Rodriguez Ojeda, incorporates my mission statement along the top edge of the image which reads "sencillez, pasion, y amor"
Creating and baking pastries and breads is my passion. I do it with love, and appreciate the simplicity and elegance of a well-crafted baked good.
Yet to come, there are some professional mementos and art from our personal collection that still need to be displayed.
Later, but as soon as possible, I will be offering hot coffee and a place to sit outside under the covered patio where you will be able to have a toasted bagel or slice of bread with homemade jam or marmelade.
Small celebration cakes will be available with various cake flavors and Italian buttercream frostings plus flavored mousse fillings.
Lastly, I will be offering small classes on ingredients 101 (pre requisite for any other classes) plus a selection of techniques and procedures on how to make bread, cakes, cookies and sauces.

- Before gaining control of my life, I created pastries for some cool places in California: San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, Brix Restaurant in Napa and The Lodge in Sonoma. Now I am the chef/owner of Pan D' Les bakery in La Paz. My personal favorite is the Multigrano loaf, full of crunchy seeds and a nice chewy crust.
