Wow! What an amazing weekend last weekend was. We hustled and got through 4 straight days of service and besides being exhausted, it was all smiles on the other side. We even got to go out and enjoy some of the shows during O+. We’re very grateful again for our awesome community and every day we feel lucky to live where we do.
This weekend its back to ‘normal’ but we will still have some fun specials to share. Also, lookout for a big announcement tomorrow.
You can pre-order bagels and bread online. We now offer all our bread for pre-order online. Pickups start at 9:30 AM on Saturday.

This Week’s Loaves: Oat Porridge + Rye Shokupan + Upstate Levain + Kingston Country + Baguettes
This week we got our first delivery of freshly milled flour from our friends at Sparrowbush Farm across the river. We should be baking a couple of test loaves on Saturday but not listing them for pre-order because not sure if they'll come out.
Oat Porridge is kind of what it sounds like. We take local steel-cut oats and cook them into a porridge which is then mixed into a half whole wheat base. The cooked oats add flavor, but also improve the total texture of the bread and make it soft and supple. This is the ultimate bread for a fruit jam.
Rye Shokupan is our take on Japanese Milk Bread. This is a classic and flavorful white bread made, that's a little lighter than a brioche but still with a good amount of eggs, milk, and butter (ie this is one of our few loaves that is not vegan). Unlike most white bread, however, this is made with only a sourdough starter for leavening and because of that and its looooong fermentation (>24 hours) it should be a bit healthier and more flavorful. This is the best for classic french toast, or Konbi style sandwiches.
Upstate Levain is our classic loaf with 50% local whole wheat (some of it fresh milled). Great for sandwiches.
Kingston Country is our take on a pain de campaigne, a French sourdough loaf, with mostly organic white flour and a touch of fresh-milled local whole wheat. Great for dipping in olive oil or your favorite schmear.
Now Playing: Elvis Perkins in Dearland - Shampoo
I felt lucky to see Elvis Perkins and his band perform this and other songs at the Old Dutch Church during O+. I had kind of forgot about this song, tbh, but its very good, and the energy was palpable in the church at night.
