We are thrilled to announce the Baker’s Dozen. The Baker’s Dozen is our returning guest program!
The History of the Baker's Dozen
The Baker's Dozen practice goes back to the 1150’s with The Worshipful Company of Bakers. The Worshipful Company of Bakers were a guild overseeing the trade. The phrase didn't come along until about 1599.
Both go back to a law that had dire punishment if you supplied less to a customer so the bakers would throw in an extra loaf. This mediaeval law did not just exist for a dozen but bakers would throw in a extra small piece for other orders too.
The Baker's Dozen practice is pretty simple. It is done by adding one to a true dozen making thirteen, a Baker’s Dozen. But originally baker’s would add a little something all the time.
