A Day at Metropolitan Bakery

A Day at Metropolitan Bakery

We're celebrating the artisans, writers, makers, and more who make up the diverse and inspiring world of food. Today: Wendy Smith Born shares a day at Metropolitan Bakery with Supply Chain, from baking bread in the wee hours of the morning to shopping for cheese at the local farmer's market. Wendy Smith Born is the co-owner of Metropolitan Bakery, a Philadelphia institution since it was founded in 1993. Together, she and pastry chef James Barrett have created a home for their quality, artisanal bread and other baked goods, as well as local jams, cheeses, and spreads. In addition to their bakery, Wendy and James co-authored the Metropolitan Bakery Cookbook, brimming with recipes for their signature cookies, cakes, pies, and more.  Here she shows us what a typical Saturday looks like around the bakery, along with pastry chef James Barrett -- their days start early.
