Freeport Bakery has been a Sacramento institution for 20 years, but there's still things to learn about the people who run it. One is that co-owner and head baker Walter Goetzeler makes a mean vanilla-bean ice cream, according to his wife Marlene Goetzeler. She raves about the ice cream, and provides a bunch of other inside stuff about Freeport Bakery in an interview with a group of Seattle bloggers who track the country's baking scene, Cakespy. Maybe when the Goetzelers move their bakery to larger quarters they'll consider adding ice cream to the menu.
