First outdoor market of the season today. We are in baking and the loaves and pastries look spectacular. This winter was very restful for David, Adam, and I and we are ready to break a sweat over some finely crafted loaves brought to market still warm from the oven. So far we have rocked out to Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers and The Band (a tribute to the late Levon Helm). Bumpin!
We will have Sesame Fennel and Fig Millet as our specialty breads this week, along with some Ciabatini, our baguettes, and the classics.
Gateau Basque will make their first appearance this week. They have been a real hit at the cafe. It is essentially an almond meal and lemon crust encapsulating a cherry, vanilla, lemon curd, or mixed berry filling. Enjoy these traditional French/Basque delicacies for breakfast or save it for dessert.
See you down there.
