Attention Pastry Chefs: Rheinland Bakery (Mt. Clemens, MI) needs a baker!!
Got this message from Steve, the owner of the Amazing Rheinland bakery in Clinton township, MI (Macomb County)....They are planning on shutting down operations due to the lack of someone to step in as chief baker...
"Steve here from Rheinland Baked Goods. My wife, Corinna, and I just wanted to thank you for all your kind words pertaining to our bakery. We really try to sell our stuff as fresh as possible. Unfortunately, our baker received a better offer, and since my wife and I are not bakers, we are forced to close the bakery. We hope to still do some farmers markets, but I can't even say when that would be. If you know of a baker who needs a job please send him our way. "
Please please please pass this message along to all your professional pastry friends...this place much too good to lose, Detroit!
Don't think so :) ...however, I believe that Steve and Corinna are the main movers of the bakery being a German bakery (emphasis on German) and not just another bake shop. After tooling around for quite some time, they were able to procure the special flours they'd need to make said breads (I spoke with Corinna about this- apparently German flours have a certain percentage of potash/protein/ect. that's hard, if not impossible to replicate with American grains).
Again, I beg you to pass this chowmessage onto your Baking and Pastry chef friends (even out of the area)...Bakeries like this do not come around often.
