Kamut Kamut Kamut Chameleon
I was nervous again about the bagels on Friday morning - no explosions, but they did expand a lot more than usual. Luckily, besides a few sacrifices - they turned out great and Saturday was a lot of fun despite the run. Also, thanks to everyone who came out and ate (and waited) for Pizza on Friday. We think it was really good for our first go, but we know we can also do better. We’re looking for another day to do it at RD, but save the date for June 2nd for more Pizza at West Kill Brewing.
Also: NOTE: We will be closed the weekend of 5/18 for more business travel, but we’ll be back in business and going all out for Memorial Day.
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.
This Week’s Loaves: Kamut Pan Loaves + Polenta + 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.
Polenta loaves are back this week. This is similar to our Oat Porridge loaf, where we mix in a grain after forming a solid base dough. In this case, beautiful local polenta (coarse corn meal) from Farmer Ground is mixed in to a half whole wheat base, similar to the Upstate Levain. The result is a tangy but sweet loaf, studded with the texture of the polenta. Perfect for a bowl of chili as we end stew season.
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: Big Thief - UFOF
I can already tell this is going to be on repeat for weeks. When I saw them at BSP for their last tour, I left feeling so deeply inspired and emotional. I knew that sadly, this would probably be their last show at BSP because their next tour they’d be playing sold out huge venues. Good for them, I was right, but sad for me - that was one of the best live shows I’ve ever seen.
