“To Die For Banana Bread” Update: June 2011

For the past few months, being unable to fulfill each of your ‘It’s To Die For Banana Bread’ cravings has been painful. However, I’m over-the-moon ecstatic to announce that the sweet ‘n salty bread will finally be available for purchase by the slice at Commune Cafe beginning Monday, July 11th.

I wouldn’t sell my banana bread anywhere. Here’s why I’ve chosen Commune as a vendor:

1. They serve the best coffee in the city, 49th Parallel, along with other to die for menu items, like a Smoked Sablefish Quinoa Cucumber Mint & Lime Salad.

2. Their meats and eggs are natural and free-range, their produce is organic, their seafood is sourced locally, and their baked goods are made in house.

3. They are members of Ocean Wise and Green Table.

4. Commune has a sleek, modern interior with a variety of seating. Great music is always playing.

5. I share their motto, ‘Those who eat together stay together’.

6. Their take-out containers are eco-friendly, as are their cleaning supplies.

7. They offer a wide variety of BC wines and beer.

On July 8th, a few days before the launch, ‘It’s To Die For Banana Bread’ will be available for tasting (while supplies last) from 3pm – 5:30pm at Commune (1002 Seymour Street). Come friends, family, media, and banana bread lovers — and be a judge for yourself! There will be a limited amount of the bread on sale at this time, as well. The informal ‘drop in’ tasting’s Twitter hashtag is: #itstodiefor.

Glasses of wine will be on special for  $6 during the banana bread-filled afternoon (white: Blasted Church, red: Volcanic Hills).

The bread — which could possibly be the world’s best? — has certainly been around the block, yet the journey has only just begun. So far, here are some of its adventures:
