Kamut as you are
Thanks for everyone who came out for Super Bowl and Toast last weekend. We had a great time despite the boring game and having to see Adam Levine’s tattoos.
This week is going to be a quick-ish one. It’s been extra busy in other parts of my life so we’re going to be not going quite as crazy this week. This is all to say, get there early if you want bread or bagels.
Also, we’re off/closed the week of the 2/16 (the following Saturday) for an actual vacation. It should be the last trip for a little while.
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.
Afternoon Toast this Saturday at 3PM
We’re back again this weekend for TOAST. It was a subdued opening last week, but it was also a freezing day and we didn't actually expect a huge turnout. It gave us some time to figure out how to do it. We were VERY happy with the final product though and got some very nice compliments from those who came by.
From 3pm onwards we’ll be slinging delicious ‘afternoon bites’ of toast and seasonal and varied toppings. These will be the perfect pairing to your beer or wine at the bar - a great snack with a drink before dinner. Or if you’re really in the mood, fill up and spend the night.
Butter + Winter Radishes
Labneh + Za’atar
Roasted Carrots + Aoili
Cauliflower Cream + Pickled Onions
All served on thick slices of Upstate Levain
This Week’s Loaf: Kamut Pan Loaf + Upstate Levain + Country + Baguettes
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: Tierra Whack - Whack World
I somehow missed this album last year but its one of the weirdest/greatest things I’ve heard lately. Sure it’s kind of a gimmick (15 1 minute songs) but holy cow they're some of the most catchy/inventive R&B songs of the past couple years.
