Week 34

Thank you Kingston and Friends for coming out to our Pizza/Wine/Records party last week. To say it was a blast would be the understatement of the year. We cooked non-stop for two days and made a bunch of people really happy with the delicious food - what more could you ask for.

Lots going on this week, including bagels and some Catsmo PASTRAMI LOX.

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 11 AM on Saturday.

Kneading Conference - No Bread Lab Next Week (July 28th)

The week after this I’ll be headed up to Maine with the family for vacation and The Kneading Conference. If you’ll be there, say hi! If not, sorry there will be no bread or bagels for a week.

Bread Lab 1st Birthday - Aug 11th

Save the Date - Aug 11th will be a special Bread Lab for our one year birthday. Our first pickup was from my house, Aug 9th 2017. Plans are still being finalized, but there should be lots of fun including CAKE and FREE BAGELS.

This weekend you’ll be able to pickup our bread in a couple different locations. Besides our regular pickups at Rough Draft, you’ll also be able to find a limited number of loaves at Westwind OrchardRavenwood Farm Shop and Village Coffee and Goods.

This Weeks Loaves: Kingston Country + Semolina Sesame + Miche

Unfortunately, due to some supplier issues, we don’t have enough of the High Extraction flour we use to make Upstate Levain this week. Instead, we’ll be doing our Kingston Country which, If I do say so myself, came out extra special last week. I’ve started to use whole grains from Champlain Valley Milling (NY/VT) that I’m milling myself for the whole wheat. The flavor is great and the powers and energy it gives to the levain can’t be beat.

I’ll also have a limited number of Semolina Sesame (our version of a whole grain/naturally leavened Italian bread) and Miche (our 100% whole grain boule, featuring a wide variety of wheat).

Now Playing: Japanese Breakfast - Soft Sounds from Another Planet

I felt lucky this past Sunday after a crazy weekend to have the night 'off' and get to go see Japanese Breakfast play at BSP. What a great show! The mellow spacey sounds of this album, when amplified take on a much different tone, but not in a bad way. Their encore of The Cranberries "Dreams" was so spot-on for their sound, it made me hear all their other music in a new way.
