You arrive before the sun and revel in your work. The bakery smells of yellow nectarines, honeysuckle, green apple skin, and butterscotch. As your first batch of brioche bakes you set to cracking walnuts, scraping vanilla beans and sweeping lemon zest into a neat pile for recipes yet to come. Extracting white sage leaves from a bag you watch the sun rise through the window.
