It’s going to be a big weekend in Kingston and we’re trying to keep pace.
O+ Festival is this weekend and there will be tons of artists, musicians and fans roaming the streets of Uptown. We’re going to try to see as much as possible between shifts at the bakery. Check out our friends The Hipstones, Clare Manchon, JK Vanderbilt, and Blood & Sugar Pills preforming throughout the weekend.
The biggest news is that with the new oven, we are going to try to start bagels at 9:30AM! We’re still working out exactly how to use it to its full potential, but we were pretty pleased with how the bagels came out.
We will also be doing (for the first time ever) a smaller bake on Sundayincluding bagels and a small number of loaves. Please come through and send your friends.
You can pre-order bagels (and bread) online They’re also a bit cheaper if you order them ahead of time and it guarantees you some bagels. Pickups start at 9:30 AM on Saturday.
This Week’s loaf: Oland + Kamut Pan Loaf + Upstate Levain + Kingston Country
I’m taking a break from the Rye loaves this week. While they are pretty popular, they dominate the oven for a long period of time and I need all the oven time I can get this weekend.
Oland is a grain of Scandinavian origin that is now being grown and milled in Maine by Maine Grains. We mix it into a hearty boule that is becoming one of our favorite loaves.
Kamut is another ancient grain (also known as Khorasan) that we use to make one of our favorite sandwich loaves. The Kamut (even when mixed with other flours) gives the bread an almost honey flavor, without any added sugar or ingredients. This is the best PB+J bread ever.
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: Balún - Prisma Tropical
This is one of the acts we’re most excited to see at this years O+. We love the fresh and interesting sound of this Puerto Rican Indie/Electro band. I actually hadn't heard the music until I saw the bill, but I couldn't be more excited to have them come to Kingston.
