Bread-dependence > Independence?
Another kind of hot and slow week, but some big things a foot and I can’t wait to tell you about them after the long weekend. Also, no fear, we’re working hard today and tomorrow to make sure there are bread and bagels for the weekend.
Once again we’ll be doing bread this Friday afternoon as well as Saturday morning. FYI any bread we don’t sell by the time we close on Saturday can still be purchased at the bar at Rough Draft. We’re also going to do a first test batch of challah this week for pickup Friday afternoon. No promises as we will need to work out the kinks I’m sure.
Our new favorite pastry, Bostock is sure to make an appearance this weekend, too.
If you missed Pizza on Friday (bummer, it was very good!) have no fear, we’ll be back in a few weeks!
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: Oat Porridge + Upstate Levain + Country + Baguettes
Oat Porridge is back again this week. I thought the last batch came out great (even though we burnt a couple) but still some more improvements to work out with the new oats we have. This is a half whole wheat base with cooked steel cut oats mixed in. It has a rich oat flavor which is great for cheese, jam, or slathering in honey.
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: Boards of Canada - Music has a right to children
One of my all time favorites (and possibly one of the most important electronic music albums ever?). I can’t believe this album is 20 years old. To me, this sounds optimistic (compared to the current state of electronic music) but a friend told me that even at the time it sounded dark and brooding. Times change.
