This year marks the 15th anniversary of the Blue Frog Bakery. Owner Chef Brad Brown will host a big celebration at the bakery, located at 3 Green Street, in Jamaica Plain, on Saturday, March 23, 2019, from 9am to 3pm. The party will feature special pastries and desserts, chocolates, coffee, and cocktails. We will also have a cake-cutting ceremony with a special guest! We are excited to share this milestone with the community that has supported us for the last fifteen years, and made us part of their family and memories.
The Blue Frog Bakery opened on March 19, 2004, with Mayor Tom Menino cutting the ribbon. We faced our first obstacle when eighteen months of construction began almost immediately, directly in front of the business. But the Blue Frog Bakery survived and built momentum over the years. Our baking methods have not changed in the last fifteen years. Croissants are cut and rolled by hand almost every day. The recipes have evolved through trial and error, culminating in Boston Magazine’s Best of Boston 2015 – Best Bread award. The seasons are punctuated with special offerings on holidays, such as stollen and yule logs, chocolates and cookies, King cakes and more. We serve challah on Fridays, and introduced Pizza Party Fridays in 2017.
Acutely aware and grateful of the support from the community, Chef Brad Brown has sought to give back. He served as president of the JP Business and Professional Association from 2013 to 2014, and continues on their Board of Directors. He is also on the Board of JP Centre/South Main Streets, and served as president from 2014 to 2017. He was recognized as JP Centre/South Main Streets Volunteer of the Year in 2017. Chef Brown is also active in promoting local non-profits. He has hosted the JP Canine Costume Parade for 15 years, whose proceeds benefit the City of Boston Animal Shelter; he has cooked for the Men of Boston Cook for Women event at Codman Square Health Center, the Taste of JP event for ESAC Boston, and the Banned in Boston Urban Improv gala, all for over 10 years, as well as contributing to various other local events.
We welcome the entire Jamaica Plain community to join us for the celebration on:
