HEY KIDS, WHAT TIME IS IT? It's time for new yummies from Gonzo Bread Co.!
First of all -- the first loaves of BRIGID'S SOURDOUGH
are coming out of the oven this week. Due to the unique nature of this bread, I have to ask $8.00 a loaf. This is a LIMITED EDITION bread that is only baked once or twice a week. The taste and texture is going to improve over time as Brigid's Bitch matures, so don't forget to order again and again. (Yes, that is a Hint Hammer you just got bonked with.) Reserve a loaf today!
ALSO DEBUTING:Fat Bastard
: Yeah, you heard me. Halfway between the French baguette
, there is the batard
, and it does indeed translate as "bastard". I can't do baguettes because, frankly, they won't fit in a shipping box and if they did they'd probably break, but I promise that these batards will be just as crispy on the outside and light and fluffy inside as any bakery baguette. $7.00 a loaf, two for $12.00. Eat 'em immediately because they won't store well.Rosenkrantz
: Rosemary + cranberry = Rosenkrantz! (Thank you, cluegirl
!) White or wheat rustic loaf with an undercurrent of aromatic rosemary and a tangy cranberry top note. Perfect with any dinner menu. $7.00 a loaf.SCOOOOOOOOOOOOOONES!Chocolate chip
: NEED I SAY MORE? Only the highest quality chocolate chips are yummy enough to go into Gonzo's scones. (The brand of chocolate will be the finest I can find at the farmers market or store, so may vary.) $6.00 per half dozen, $10.00 per dozen.Lemon-ginger
: OH YEAH BABY. Brew your favorite cuppa tea, then add these scones for an instant tea party! Lemon zest adds just enough tang, and chopped crystallized ginger will give your tastebuds a zingy surprise. $6.00 for six, $10.00 for a dozen.
In addition, Gonzo is pleased to offer its first two Seasonal Selections
. A great start to a winter morning, Winter Dawn is a filling whole-wheat* loaf enlivened with the crunch of oats and sweetened with 100% real New England maple syrup -- and hey, is that just a teensy-weensy taste of coffee? YOU BET IT IS -- it's a whole breakfast in a loaf of bread! This one will keep for a week at room temperature, so you can toast it or make the best egg-and-cheese breakfast sammies you've ever had. It'll also freeze for months, and that's a good thing, because this offering will be gone with the winter snows (LADY FREYA MELT ALL THE SNOW SOONER OR LATER PLEEEEEZE). $7.00 a loaf.
*I think I should clarify that when I say "whole wheat" that does not mean 100% whole wheat flour. All Gonzo's whole-wheat loaves use a mix of unbleached white bread flour and whole wheat. Although, if you do want a loaf of 100% whole wheat, just let me know and I'll be happy to bake one just for you!Apple 'n' Onion
: Caramelized apples and onions fill this white loaf with sweet-and-savory richness, imbued with undercurrents of rosemary and thyme. It's like the stuffing you have with turkey dinners IN A LOAF OF BREAD! It'll be gone with the spring, so buy one for now, and one to freeze. $7.00 a loaf.COMING SOON
: Just in time for St. Patrick's Day will be traditional Irish Soda Bread, and yes, because I just can't resist, there will also be Potato Bread. Also, don't miss Gonzo's Seasonal Selections for Spring, so check back often!
See y'all later, and thanks for going Gonzo.When the going gets weird, the weird bake bread!
