Preorder your Thanksgiving Loaves

Greetings from foggy San Francisco. I'm away this week again for work so that means that there will be no bread again this weekend. Fortunately, this should be the last time this year, and if I do my job and am able to train up my friendly assistants it might be the last time ever? (!?!?)

However, this isn't just a reminder that there is no bread this weekend, because there is also NEWS.


Preorder your loaves here

Wouldn't it be nice to have a beautiful fresh loaf (or 2) for your Thanksgiving meal? We're offering a choice of 2 different loaves that will be baked fresh for pickup on Wednesday 11/22.

Pickup will be at Rough Draft Bar and Books. More information will be sent the day before.

Cranberry + Pumpkin Seed is a special bread just for Thanksgiving. A levain style loaf studded with dried cranberries and pumpkin seeds. Very festive. Perfect for a spread of cheese before dinner or after or as a centerpiece for your table.

Kingston Country is our classic sourdough loaf. It’s mostly white with a bit of whole wheat for flavor and with very open crumb. This is an all purpose loaf that is great for sandwiches or for the best stuffing ever. In fact, our friends at Ravenwood used this bread for their stuffing recipe in Williams Sonoma.

Rough Draft First Birthday - Saturday 11/17

Next Saturday, 11/17 come to Rough Draft where instead of bagels (there will still be bread, just no bagels) we will be serving a full meal of what I'm calling Jewish BBQ. Somewhere in between Jewish Deli and American BBQ: Smoked Brisket Pastrami, Smoked Turkey, Smoked Beef Salami, Noodle Kugel, Collard Greens. It's going to be great. Food starts at noon, but you can pick bread up starting at9AM. If you come back at 9PM I'll also be closing down the place with a DJ set.

Bagels are back after Thanksgiving

And finally, the next bagels will be 11/24 the Saturday after Thanksgiving. We'll be doing a massive spread so come decompress after all that family with a hefty dose of NOSH.
