Q: Is it really hot in the bakery?
A: It is very hot.
Q: What do you bake?
A: I bake cookies, pies, cakes, and other pastries.
Q: Do you use any special tools when you bake?
A: We use giant mixers, a dough sheeter, a very, very big oven, a proofer, and a walk-in-refrigerator. The giant oven came from Germany.
What it was like to do the interview:
The interview with Deeann Hall was very fun because we got to take a tour of the bakery and take notes about the bakery. Deeann Hall was really nice and she was very easy to do an interview with. The bakery has huge mixers and a huge refrigerator, and the food was awesomely delicious.

Bakery Taste Test

By Dani W., 5th Grade
surveycookies.jpgEveryone in publishing walked to the Eugene City Bakery to taste the delicious, sugary, chewy, tasty.....wait, I’m getting off topic. We tried 4 different kinds of cookies (molasses, peanut butter, oatmeal chocolate chip, and oatmeal raisin) and rated them from 1 to 3 (3 being awesome, 1 being horrible). The chart shows the average scores. Oatmeal chocolate chip was the favorite, and molasses a close second.

Then we tried the breads. Polenta was the favorite:


As the final part of our taste testing of the bakery, we tried three different pastries: almond croissant, chocolate croissant, and a marionberry scone. We started out using the same rating system as before, but the chocolate croissant was so good we had to add a fourth rating!
