Three Forks Bakery & Brewing Co. “breaks bread” with Joan Baez

We are excited about the opening of Three Forks Bakery & Brewing in Nevada City. It is featured in our summer issue. We also write about the owners, David Cowie and Shana Maziarz, in a feature called “We’ve Got Talent.”

“Dave and Shana are the co- owners and visionaries of Three Forks Bakery & Brewing Co., opening this summer in Nevada City. Dave is the craft-beer brewer and Shana is the baker. Both are longtime residents of the region, fulfilling a dream to open their own small business. Places on the “Coast” such as Della Fattoria in Petaluma, Boot & Shoe Service and Pizzaiolo in Oakland and Wild Flower Break Bakery in Freestone (Sonoma County) inspired them. Along with others, such as Amy Cooke of Summer Thyme’s Bakery & Deli, Ike Frazee of Ike’s Quarter Cafe and the ‘dean,’ Peter Selaya of New Moon Cafe, we think Dave and Shana can bring more exceptional dining experiences to our mountain towns.”

Now this week, Three Forks was invited to cook dinner for singing icon Joan Baez when she came to Grass Valley to perform, thanks to Center for the Arts. We’ve met Joan several times in the Bay Area; she had been married to David Harris, who wrote a book called “The Last Stand,” a topic that I covered extensively at the San Francisco Chronicle.

“We had the incredible opportunity to make dinner for Joan Baez and her crew, along some of our favorite local folks, at the river,” Dave and Shana reported on the Three Forks Facebook page.

“We served grilled wild-caught salmon and black cod and wood-oven roasted chicken and salads and cold cucumber soup and grilled corn and fabulous fresh bread and bruschetta and cake and more.”

We look forward to the opening of Three Forks. Good going!
