Tonight, I (Mary) am in raptures over Coolea, a gouda-style cheese from Co. Cork, Ireland: butterscotchy + nutty!
Busy cleaning the shop + prepping for tonight's class: Cheese 101. Here's Jess plating a couple of the flights!
Lots of goodies to try today - Julia is also sampling out our charcutière, Julie's, scrumptious Rabbit Pâté!
Today in the bakery, Selma made a Turkish pastry called pogacha. Filled w/ feta, parsley + yogurt!
So, so good = Julie's amazing duck pastrami: sweet, savory, delicious + the fat melts in your mouth like butter!
Robiola di Castagna: a deliciously flavorful goats' milk cheese in chestnut leaves. Warm, biscuity + bright!
Kaffir lime leaves are in! Julia, our spice buyer, is steeping some in coconut milk for Mulligatawny soup!
Yum! Cole's mackerel in piripiri sauce for dinner tonight @ the rec of a fellow staffer + some of our FB peeps!
I'm gonna call these "hamekins." Tripp + Emily made them yesterday for staff - a scrumptious winter brunch idea!
Walked home and, by the time I got in the door, my baguette had a light dusting of snow!
My (Mary's) first batch of crisps in 2011: pear, apple + blueberry. The smell = perfect + cold weather comforting!
Saturday special from the bakery: Kaffir lime cream OR lemon curd doughnuts - both w/ glaze + toasted coconut!
I (Mary) started a Vin d'Orange experiment this evening w/ Seville oranges + rosé. Should be ready in 6-8 weeks!
In today: Romanesco, among the most perfect fractals in nature! Milder than broccoli but nuttier than cauliflower.
Amazing cheeses in at the moment from farmstead affineur (ager of cheese), Pascal Beillevaire!
@maryluella @hollanhomestead The Seville oranges are here - organic + w/ their characteristic gently sour flavor!
Citrus time is here + Julio got in some amazing fruit today: heirloom navel oranges, Meyer lemons + satsumas!
Eric got in some awesome ciders today from the Dupont family - both unfiltered and unpasteurized - lots o' flavor!
Cole's fish was one of the "Staff Picks of 2010!" Here's the mackerel - bold + savory, it's also flaky + delicate!
Getting ready for New Year's Eve - we're doing cheese math this morning: check out the Raclette Theorem!
