Kamut and carry on
I’m currently writing to you from Cape Cod, where I’ve been lucky enough to be (despite it raining almost non-stop) for the past 3 days. Digging in the sand with the kids and getting my feet wet has been good for me, though, and I’m excited to be back in business tomorrow. The team has been holding down the fort feeding the starter while I’m gone.
Last weekend was a little bonkers and we sold out of bagels much earlier than usual. Also, we had to send a bunch of people away empty-handed early because we had to catch up with the line. This is a STRONG reminder that if you definitely want more than 3 or 4 bagels (ie a half or dozen) PLEASE pre-order by Friday morning.
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.
Pizza Party at Rough Draft 6/28
We’re back for another Friday night Pizza Party on our home turf. Once again we’ll be slinging 12" Neopolitain-ish pies from the parking lot and our little oven to be consumed with the best local beer and wine in the HV. We’ll start serving at 6PM. No to-go so come and plan to stay for a little while.
This Week’s Loaves: Kamut Pan + Oland + 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.
Oland is a grain of Scandinavian 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.
