It started as a little friendly bake-off competition between Brian Noyes, then a publication director living in California, and his uncle in Florida. But it stirred up a passion for baking that would lead Noyes to pursue formal training and a second career in fine pastries and baked goods. This is how it worked: Noyes and his uncle would send homemade baked goods to one another, including the recipes with each shipment. When Noyes would open his package from his uncle, not only would he find cookies and the corresponding recipe, but he would also rediscover the recipe he had sent his uncle before, now covered in red ink with his uncle’s recommendations for improvements. Years later, when Noyes moved to Florida to be the art director of Tampa Magazine, he and his uncle developed a recipe for honey whole-wheat bread that is now a customer favorite at Noyes’s new enterprise, Red Truck Bakery. “It drove my aunt crazy,” he recalls. “She had to clean up all the messes we made in the kitchen.” Art and Food Intertwined Brian Noyes launched Red Truck Bakery as he shifted gears from being an art director for publications such as Smithsonian Magazine, Preservation, and House & Garden to being a farm owner and baker in Orlean, Virginia. “I think every art director wants to design something for himself,” Noyes says. “This business is my chance to do that.” Noyes has been working out of his farmhouse kitchen and selling via mail order and at select area stores for two and a half years, but the new storefront in Old Town Warrenton will allow him to increase production, variety, and availability of his artisanal products. The red truck logo is Noyes’s own design, inspired by his love for red antique farm trucks. When he and his buddy Dwight McNeill purchased a small farm in Fauquier County, Noyes began looking for the perfect truck online. He found a great deal on consignment in New York. Not until Noyes showed genuine interest in the truck did he discover who its owner was: fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger. After Noyes purchased the truck, he received a personal note from Hilfiger with anecdotes about the truck. The bakery’s signature red truck, which Noyes uses for local deliveries and events, will be parked outside the bakery on Waterloo Street in Old Town Warrenton, wonderfully symbolizing the bakery’s origin on Noyes’s Orlean farm, his close ties to local agriculture, and the building’s original manifestation—an Esso filling station circa 1921. “Half the fun is in the packaging and marketing,” he says, noting the confluence of his present career and his experience as an art director. The other half of the fun, of course, is in the baking. Noyes’s artisanal breads and pastries are enough to make even the “I want to know who grew the peaches, have him come in, give him a piece of pie.” —Brian Noyes As seen in Flavor Magazine, aug./sept. 2009 • flavormags.com As seen in Flavor Magazine, aug./sept. 2009 • flavormags.com
