Product Of The Month

Every month we spotlight a bread or product that we sell in our cafés. We hope you enjoy learning a little about them. Stop by any of our locations to sample these treats and take something home to share.

Onion Rye

I’m a big fan of rye breads and this loaf is by far my favorite. Roasted onions have a natural sweetness that combines nicely with the more rustic flavor of rye. The loaf features a natural rye starter we created over twenty years ago and Fairhaven Mills organic whole grain medium rye flour. Sea salt, caraway and nigella seeds round out the flavor profile. Before baking, we roll the loaf in semolina flour to create a crisper crust, which I find very desirable. Perhaps best simply spread with unsalted butter, this bread is also perfect for a Reuben or an East Coast-style pastrami sandwich with Swiss and creamy coleslaw.
