Bake Napa Valleyl Bake Napa is a spin off group from Baker's Dozen organized by Annie Baker (yes that's really her name) for those who live in the Napa area. The meeting is hosted by Susie and Ken Pope at their magnificent B & B Cedar Gables Inn. The concept of this group of bakers, both professional and avocational, is to bake from the the guest author's book and to be as true as possible to the recipe. Sharon Beck made a fun video of the event . All the participants did an excellent job and here is a sampling of the photos that Woody took that came out the best:
