So much prep this week but its been fun! We were rocking some crazy beautiful dough tonight, so there should be good bread this weekend. Bread will be available at Rough Draft as usual, but also a large number of loaves being sent to Ravenwood, Village Coffee, and Westwind Orchard.
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.
PIZZA - This Friday @ Rough Draft
This Friday (9/7) we’ll be doing another PIZZA party at Rough Draft starting at 6PM. I convinced Anthony to let me play my 90s Hip-Hop playlist (or more accurately “Hip-hop songs from the 90s where guys yell the chorus” playlist). There will be a bunch of seasonal square pies (tomatoes, zucchini, kale, etc). Come grab a couple slices and a beer and make a night of it - it should be fun.
This week’s loaf: Upstate Levain + Kingston Country + Oland + Baguettes
No lab loafs this week as I’m stretching myself a little too far with big wholesale and pizza. There will be extra bagels though, so come through.
- 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. This is becoming a weekly thing as I’ve gotten such great feedback on it and I love making it.
- 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.
I’ve been listening to this album for a week a year for the past (almost) 10 years. I’m not sure what it is about the Lofi sound, but it reminds me of September, going back to school, standing on Subway platforms.
