Happy Monday! I'm grateful for the rain.....more coming.


And more good news, after a thorough search that saw nearly 100 applicants, a veteran artisan baker will be joining our team in February. Details coming soon.



It's going to be an amazing week! Thanks to all the friends of IZOLA who stepped up for SEND A SMILE, 45 loaves will be baked and delivered hot from the IZOLA's oven to hungry people in East Village tomorrow (Tuesday). Our friends at Second Sunday will lead the effort to share bread and conversation around the neighborhood. Order by midnight tonight if you'd like donate a loaf for tomorrow's delivery.

Hot croissants and sourdough in 2 days! It's a great time to pre-order. Insider tip: we'll probably sell out earlier than usual for the next few weeks. (After months of 7 day work weeks, Jenny and I are going to scale back a bit, until our new artisan baker is up to speed.) It's a marathon. 😉 - Jeffrey

New ugly bit flavor this week, Peach Thyme! More fruit/croissant forward, lighter on the sugar. What are uglies? We take the "ugly" ends of the croissant dough, roll it with an ever-changing mix of brown sugar, dried fruits, herbs and bake it out in a glass bowl. One of a kind dessert, literally.

IZOLA Double Wall Stainless Tumbler

At 8oz it feels great in the hand, easy sipping, keeps drinks hot for a good long while. Cute guitar player not included.

Wow, Wow, Wow! It has been wild start to the year. So much happening here at IZOLA and in the world at large. It's challenging to launch a new enterprise in the best of times. To those of you who have come out to support us week after week in spite of COVID, social upheaval, political instability, economic stress, you are the reason we bake.


Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.

- Jeffrey, Jennifer and the IZOLA Team.

THANK YOU TO IZOLA FAMILY

Our Thanksgiving pickup day (11/25) was amazing.

First I'd like to thank you, our passionate eaters, for the support and love to make it our biggest day ever and even more to share our small batch bread and croissants with your friends and family at the Thanksgiving table. I'm not going to lie, it pushed us. We baked 53 loaves of sourdough and nearly 200 croissants in our tiny ovens in 11 hrs.

A huge shout out goes to Jenny, David, Sacha and Spencer for all the planning, passion and hard work to bring this ambitious day to life without a hitch. Here's a little video to see how our team felt at the end of the day.

A glimpse of things to come.

-Jeffrey
