Week 49

Feeling very thankful today! A lot of you ordered and came and picked up bread for Thanksgiving and I even got to save a loaf for myself. The Rough Draft first birthday was a big success. We served about 150 plates of food and still managed to have too much left (be prepared to see Smoked Turkey and Pastrami on a bagel near you soon). It was a ton of fun and I loved seeing all the friendly faces chowing down and even coming back for seconds.

This weekend we’re FINALLY back to ‘normal’. It's going to be a little bit of a big bake tomorrow as I was unable to do my typical Thursday/Friday prep, but that just means more fresh bread for you and yours.

And after a 3-week hiatus because of travel and the party, bagels and baguettes are back tomorrow. I can’t wait! Tomorrow is also Small Business Saturday so please come out and support all your favorite Uptown Shops (despite the cold)!

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: Kamut Pan + Upstate Levain + Kingston Country + Baguettes

A limited amount of loaves this week because of no Friday bake, but if you want me to reserve something for you, let me know!

  • Kamut Pan loaves are our favorite sandwich bread. Kamut (aka Khorosan) is an ancient grain that we get from Milanese in Quebec. I think it has a bit of a sweet honey taste while still being 100% vegan (like all our other breads). It will be great for leftover turkey or PB jelly 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: Lando Chill - For Mark, Your Son

This album is a couple years old at this point, but something about the interesting mix of hip-hop/soul/jazz/gospel keeps me coming back. The production is super unique and has you nodding your head even without the boom bap.
