Hello Grandma's friends.  Time to bring you up to date with our plans.  A year ago we expanded into a larger space where our customers could sit over a cup of coffee and a scone, surf the web, catch up with friends.  I expected a friend to come from Germany and open a restaurant in this same space, for evening meals.  Well, he never came, we never started the restaurant.  Now is the time to reevaluate our direction.​

We are going back to the original space, A-183, and closing A-181 for now.  We will remodel A-181 over the next few months.  After Spring Festival, we will hire a chef and offer a menu that will take you to America.  We will offer simple American home-style food.  Until then, for your bread needs, just come to the bakery at A-183 between the hours of 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.​

We still offer sandwiches, coffee, tea and hot chocolate, for take-away.

The hot weather is upon us.  We all are looking for a cool place to hide out, in hopes the summer heat will quickly pass us by.​

Here at Grandma's Nook we are air-conditioned, with seats for 20 people.  At the moment, a group of young men are playing a tournament of a card game that has something to do with the three kingdoms.  Three days into it, they spend the afternoons in comfort and competition right here.​

We are introducing a new Milk Shake/Smoothie from France [Monbana Chocolatier].  We currently offer it in two flavors:  Chocolate, and Mango-Passion Fruit.  It is refreshing.  We added our own Coffee Frappe to the mix, with a subtle hint of tiramisu flavor.  Icy cold coffee with milk, topped with a creamy foam.​

We still serves sandwiches everyday, all day.  The Hot Seller right now is the roast Chicken sandwich.  Add a cool potato salad

What's new at Grandma's? Well, first of all, we've been too busy to offer classes, much to our regret.

We now offer hot fresh pizza every Friday and Saturday evening. Dine-in only, no take-out orders. Our pizzas offer authentic New York style crust, and sausage which you won't find anywhere else in Changzhou. We have a variety of toppings to choose from. Mushroom, pepper and onions, and plain pizza with extra cheese. We also have 'Hawaiian' pizza, which combines ham and pineapple.

Also new is BAGELS. I've been promising this for many months, and now we are offering them for real. Every Saturday. We will start making small batches, so get in early. We're starting with a Philadelphia style, and listen for your feedback.

The bakery has been extremely busy during the past month.  More and more people have heard about us through TV and newspapers, and so many more customers are coming through the door now.  

Just when I want the product quality to be at its very best, I find myself training a new baker!  And of course, you are seldom so lucky as

The marble cake is a winner.  The next contender is Lemon Cake.  It sold out quickly, so we will do it again.

We made granola bars today.  We haven't made them in months.  This batch came out very well, so if it's one of your favorites, now is the time to stock up.

We are making our popular multigrain sourdough rye in large loaves now, by popular demand.  Tomorrow we will also make a 'miche', which is a 100% whole wheat sourdough.

We bid farewell to Peter, our apprentice baker, at a dinner tomorrow night.  We are trying out a new young lady as apprentice baker.  We also have a college student who works with us on the weekends.  New faces!  Come in and make their acquaintance.

We hope you came and took advantage of our first anniversary specials.  Nevermind, if you missed it.  Next time you come, you'll see we are expanding our line of sweet things.  A few days ago I made 'hand pies', filled with cherry pie filling.  This time I'm making them with apple pie filling.  

We have introduced cakes.  These are not your traditional Chinese cakes.  Our cakes are creamy and smooth.  We have a special marble cake, swirled chocolate and vanilla together, in a bundt pan.  This means that there is a hole in the center.  Sorry, no pictures yet.  Soon.

Okay, see you soon.

Grandma

Yesterday was a lot of fun.  We saw lots of friends, and more people than ever enjoyed our sandwiches.  We are offering a special 'Breaded Lemon Bread' that looks so pretty and tastes sooo good. We made only two for yesterday and two for today.  We will bake today's Lemon Bread this morning.  Come early to get yours.

We gave away the door prize last night, to a Chinese teacher of English at First Leap training school.  Her name was picked at random from all the entries.  Today is a new day.  Even if you entered yesterday, you can enter again today by simply writing down your name and phone number.

We hope to see you today.  Especially if you like our scones, don't miss the 3 for the price of 2 special between 10 am. and 12 noon.

The muffins on special this afternoon, 3 pm to 5 pm only, are Apple-Carrot muffin, Fruitburst muffin, and banana muffin.  Buy two, get
