Bread this week
Pain Meunier – also known as miller’s bread as it was developed to honor the millers who mill the wheat. Always a popular selection. Made with bread flour and fresh milled whole wheat as well as cracked wheat and wheat germ. This bread pre-ferments a portion of the flour, water, yeast and salt overnight before mixing the final dough. A delicious bread that makes great toast -$5/loaf
Fig Anise – Ever since introducing this bread last summer it has become very popular. Also made with bread flour and freshly milled whole wheat it includes dried figs, honey and anise. Lovely mediterranean flavors that make this bread go well with meats and cheeses- $5/loaf
And for a bit of pastry –
Chocolate Babka Rolls – Made with an enriched dough that is full of sugar, eggs and butter, rolled out, spread with a dark chocolate filling made with more butter, sugar and a touch of cinnamon. These are delicious. Be sure and get your orders in early as always with pastry I can only make a limited number- 2/$5
February schedule update
Those of you on the bread-order email list will hear from Janice the weekend before each such Friday, and we will update this blog each Friday AM to confirm schedules. Through most of February, tastings will be Impromptu and communal, and purchases are, of course, encouraged and welcome!
We will reopen on our regular schedule either Feb 24 or Mar 3.
While it has been snowing all week on Lummi Island, it has been raining all week here in Sonoma. Today is promised an additional 1-2″ accumulation. The ground is totally saturated, so it sits in pools or runs to lower ground. Here is a pool on top of the lawn (yes, there is grass under there.) Supposed to get a few dry days starting tomorrow, when we will start our trek home.
