Meet the Purveyors: Dozen Bakery

As each Batch arrives on doorsteps and you fine folks discover the goodness that awaits inside, we'll share the stories of the great people making, baking, and crafting each month's contents.

Today we profile the very first purveyor who said "Yes!" to the crazy idea of Batch: Claire Meneely, owner of Dozen Bakery.

Batch members got a chance to taste Dozen's fantastic strawberry bread in our Rise & Shine Batch, but, of course, there's a lot more where that came from. What began as a holiday cookie pop-up shop is now a thriving business (set to open its first brick and mortar retail shop very soon). From cookies to breads, and scones to brownies, Dozen's ability to bake something special is worth seeking out. 

Claire found her way back to her hometown of Nashville after spending time in Paris and San Francisco. What she learned there influences what she makes here. When you take that knowledge and passion and combine it with quality local and organic ingredients, then you come up with something that you'll skip dinner for.
