December Offerings and Pop-Up
December Offerings and a Party!
Now that December has made his way down our swept-clean paths and arrived on our doorsteps, carrying all that he does with him — the clarity of a landscape laid bare, the tidings of early winter and the coming solstice, the reflection of our whole calendar year — we have nothing to do except invite him in and plunge into the fray of this celebratory season.
We've been bustling at the bakeshop this past week, developing our offerings for this special time of year, and we feel perhaps like delighted elves in their workshops, thinking of you as we marvel at the way baking soda animates warm molasses, celebrate how discrete spices blend to make something that is far more magical than just the sum of them, and remember the rhythms of our cookie cutters.
This year, we bring back the Shortbread and Traditional Cookie Collections, and have a new arrival to our sampler boxes, this time a savory one! Maia has developed a Cracker Collection that will at once grace elegant tables and satisfy a deep need for the nourishment of whole grains, nuts, seeds, and, yes, cheese too. Each of our Collections is wrapped with twine and features a wax seal, natural element, or origami flower, perfect for gift giving to loved ones or to yourself! Also to be introduced are Maia's gorgeous Granola and, next week, Gingerbread House Kits and Buche de Noel.
All orders placed on the website by 10 PM on Monday, December 7, will be available for pickup on Tuesday, December 8th from 4 to 6 PM at our current production space located at 227 Haywood Road, next to Short Street Cakes in West Asheville.
We'd love to see you at our Holiday Pop-up on December 13!
In collaboration with Short Street Cakes, from 1 to 4 PM, we'll be welcoming folks at 227 Haywood Road, serving hot mulled cider, hot cocoa, and serving savory and sweet treats. Available for purchase will be Pour-over Mountain Air Coffee, Cookie and Cracker Collections, Gingerbread House Kits, Chocolate Babka, and Maia's Granola.
Raisin Flax Bread is now available to retail customers!
We'll be making an extra batch of Raisin Flax bread each week on Tuesdays. While some are available now on the website, Susannah will be organizing a list of standing orders for this bread (may include 1/2 loaves), available for pickup each week on Tuesday late afternoon or anytime on Wednesday. Please contact Susannah directly for more information: firstname.lastname@example.org or 919.800.1014.
