Tina Klassen has opened Millie's Bake House, named for her grandmother, at 215 W. Yankie St. in Silver City. She'll be serving soups, sandwiches, salads and of course baked goods. Don't miss her special chocolate cupcake filled with chocolate whipped cream — a tipoff that Klassen was first inspired to open the bakery during this year's Chocolate Fantasia festival. 597-BAKE (-2253), firstname.lastname@example.org.
Las Cruces also has a new bakery, Kathy Hester's BakeHouse, specializing in traditional European sourdough bread baked in a wood-fired oven, which you can now find at the Las Cruces Farmers Market. Hester uses a slow-rise method, allowing the final loaves to proof in a cool environment for an additional 12 hours after they are formed. The loaves are then baked early the following morning; from start to finish it can take between 24 to 30 hours to produce a loaf.
