MIDWAY, Ky.—Most chefs are creative, but few are true creators like Ouita Michel.
In the past few years, Michel, who is chef and co-owner of Holly Hill Inn, crafted Wallace Station Deli and Bakery (Midway) and Windy Corner Market and Restaurant in Lexington.
As of mid-June she’s got a new place, Midway School Bakerywhich, as the name implies, is located in the one-time cafeteria of Midway School, a building that surely is 80 years old.
The de rigueur wide, iron-framed rectangular windows of that day border the east and west sides of the space, allowing ample sunlight to spill into every corner of what largely is a retail production bakery. If you like watching the action, the view into the bustling kitchen is completely unobstructed.
