Much Kneaded: Portland bread and pastries

I want to write something I really, really do but between the private tastings (private dancer but no exchange of money and no need for a change of clothes), tours and interviews there's some time for my freelance, some time for my taxes (taxes!) and a little more time to actually write this book that's supposedly due by early September. So instead of writing any more I give you this post of images. I'm including some bread and pastry folks and places that I've been to and met with in the past couple weeks...
