Going up to Country

Last Saturday was a real blast! We were hustling like crazy on one of our busiest days of all time (no joke!) and also doing a photo shoot for SIFT magazine. I will not see the photos for a while, but thanks to everyone who participated and smiled at us. We <3 our community.

Get your bread fix in this weekend as we’ll be closed the following weekend for Passover.

Reminder: We do bagel platters now if you need something for an event!

Note: We will be closed/no bread the weekend of April 20th. It’s Passover and we’ll be visiting family and eating lots of Matzo Balls.

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.

In a couple of weekends, we’re going to be (hopefully) enjoying the beautiful weather and cooking pizza (and some other tasty treats) outside at West Kill Brewing’s Taproom in the Catskills. Our friends at West Kill make some of the best beer in the area (and we would argue anywhere) and we can’t wait to pair some classic pizza cooked in a portable oven and our some of our favorite sandwiches as well. Take the drive into the mountains and come through!
 

This Week’s Loaves: Oland + Upstate Levain + Country + Baguettes

Testing out some new flour with the country this week, so no lab loaves!

  • Oland is a grain of Scandavian origin that is now being grown and milled in Maine by Maine Grains. We mix it into a hearty boule that is becoming one of our favorite loaves.

  • 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: People Under The Stairs - “O.S.T.”

Another old one this week. “Acid Raindrops” has been one of my all time favorite under-rated hip-hop songs of the early aughts. This album (and this group?) as a whole has consistently been producing some of the most bumpable and head-noddable hip hop for two decades now.
