Founder and lead baker Sarah Gardner has been baking since she was old enough for her parents to trust her with an oven. Though she’s a native of Nashville, Tennessee, Sarah now bakes up a storm in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Monday through Friday you can catch her in Downtown Baton Rouge working as a Project Manager at a local non-profit; through their work in the community, Sarah and the rest of her magnificent colleagues aim to make South Louisiana, and the world, a little bit better each day.
After years of indulging in baking as a hobbyist Sarah has now baked for holiday celebrations, birthdays, baby showers, and beyond. She has experience with various sweet breads, cakes, cookies, pastries, and even confections that accommodate special dietary needs such as gluten- or sugar-free. Sarah loves trying out new recipes and is currently working on perfecting savory croissants.
You can usually find Batch’s fresh-baked goodness at the Red Stick Farmers Market on the first and third Saturdays of the month; Look for Batch inside near the intersection at North and 5th streets, but always check the upcoming events lineup just in case the schedule deviates from the usual. In addition to sharing her baking via pop-up events like the market or other festivals, Sarah can bake special orders throughout the week to meet your needs. Whether you’re hosting a party or you simply have a hankering for some scones, Sarah can help connect you to the oven-loved goods you want.
