Everyone sharpen your pencils, it’s contest time! The first Aurora Bakery contest is about to begin.
Based on the overwhelming sales of the cranberry-walnut brioche braid, it’s obvious that I don’t have a clue what bread is actually going to sell well. Even though it’s the most expensive bread on the menu, I’ve sold five loaves in the week after I introduced this new bread, which is the best showing for a single type of bread yet.
So the contest open to all readers is to recommend a new bread to be added to the menu that you think would be a best-seller. What would be a bread you’d go out of your way to buy? Something special for a weekend brunch? A daily rustic loaf? Something sweet, something with cheese?
The prize is one of any type of bread on the menu, shipped priority right to your home. The contest will be open for one week, with the final selection made next Friday, November 20th at the end of the day. The rules are simple: post your bread idea in the comments section. Watch the comments board and give your support to the idea you like most. The bread with the most votes wins, and the person who nominated that bread gets the prize. If everybody submits one idea and there is a tie, I’ll pick what I think has the most potential.
