Bread this week

dscn1364 (Modified)Whole Wheat Ciabatta – Using an italian biga pre-ferment as well as a poolish. Once mixed the dough is then fermented overnight in the refrigerator. These long, slow ferments add a lot of flavor to the final bread. Made with regular bread flour and fresh milled whole wheat. A little olive oil for more flavor and a lot of water. With so much water this bread can’t really be shaped, just cut into pieces and baked. A great rustic bread – $5/loaf

Prairie Bread – Named for the ingredients that reflect all the goodness of the grains that grow on the prairie. Using regular bread flour and fresh milled whole wheat as well as oats, and cornmeal. And as if that wasn’t enough it is loaded up with poppy, flax, sesame, sunflower and pumpkin seeds with just a hint of brown sugar for a little sweetness. – $5/loaf

And for pastry this week…

Traditional Plain Croissants –
Even the croissants are made with a pre-ferment, a little sourdough for flavor and something called preferment dough, also known as old dough, that is fermented overnight. Made with bread flour and a bit of freshly milled whole wheat, also milk, butter and sugar, before being laminated with more butter. I’ve heard some say that these are better than any they had in Paris (France, not Texas!). – 2/$5

Sunday Concert June 11!

Singer/songwriter/therapist (and Lummi Island familiar) Rob Hutchings has played his music in the wine shop numerous times over the past year, where many of us have  enjoyed his expressive and emotive style: “With these songs of awareness, we celebrate our creative connection with an intention of healing.” For this concert Rob is teaming up with bluegrass mandolin/guitarist Perry Welsh, who brings his dynamic picking/strumming patterns to this musical collaboration in which unique rhythms frame the narrative elements of Rob’s songs. It’s gonna be fun!  Listen 

Btw, for those of you who are musicians, Artisan Wine Gallery offers free wine tastings to anyone who volunteers for a fifteen-minute gig in the shop during our regular open hours! Acoustic music sounds great in our space, no amps necessary…all you have to do is show up!

Music from 4-6pm. Suggested donation is $15. Wine by the glass.

Space is limited, so please email us to reserve space.
