Last Saturday was great. I was so humbled by the support and kind words from everyone. It was our most successful day of Bread Lab (ever!) and also the most loaves and bagels we had ever made in a weekend. Thank you for keeping us going and coming back every weekend. <3 <3 <3
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.
This Weeks Loaves: Oland + Semolina Sesame + Kingston Country + Upstate Levain
Reminder: If you are a shareholder, you can always ask me (via email) to reserve a specific loaf for you! Otherwise, it's always first-come-first-serve.
- Last week was my first real bake with the Oland flour and I thought it came out great, but I’m doing it again (and maybe every weekend?) until I figure out its intricacies. Oland is a heirloom wheat from Scandinavia that has started to be cultivated in the Northeast. It has a unique flavor that I would describe as sweet, oaty and creamy. I’ll be combining it with some high extraction whole wheat and white flour to make a great toast loaf.
- Semolina Sesame is our fan favorite take on a classic Italian loaf. Of course, our version is made with Organic Semolina flour, a little bit of whole wheat, and our sourdough starter. It is the best red sauce dipping bread you can find.
- 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: FRKWYS Vol 8: Blues Control and Laraaji
Going back to my favorite ambient/bliss musicians and found this awesome collaboration that I somehow missed when it came out. This is perfect deep thinking music, with the drony guitars and synths and Laraaji’s processed zither. Blissed out but in an ‘its-too-hot-in-the-dead-of-summer’ kind of way.
