Chef Kurt and home baker Allison D’Aurizio combine their talents in their new enterprise, 1748 Bakehouse. Hand crafted, locally sourced, and seasonal ingredients are finding their expression in this couples’ homemade delights. What began as a family request and special-order pie delivery operation for Allison and the tasty provisions created by Chef Kurt, has grown into a community of loyal followers and new converts placing orders and lining up at the farmers market stand to make their purchased from this creative couple.
The D’Aurizios are not newcomers to the local food movement. Relationships with their local farmers and purveyors is a priority for this couple. Fresh, local, seasonal and sustainably grown ingredients are evident by what is on display at their stand on any given Saturday at the Riverside Arts Market.
On the day of our visit there were vegetable and fruit croustades, muffins, and hand-crafted chocolate brownies along with, vegetable and nut pesto, vegan spreads, and pecan filled granola. Community relationships with growers, farmers, and backyard gardeners are evident in the list of ingredients. Sustainable Springfield, Cross Creek Honey, Down to Earth organic farms, Urban Folk, Congaree and Penn farms, Georgia cane syrup and local citrus are just some of their local sources.
You will find no foam packaging or plastic straws here. Compostable spoons, paper bags and packaging are the norm. Food scraps are composted and recycling is part of their sustainable efforts too.
