Today is the 10th week and halfway mark of the Rockford City Market season. Summer is certainly flying by and I hope you are enjoying every moment of it! If you are looking for something fun to do this weekend, join me and make your way down to the City Market pavilion Saturday night from 4-10pm for Bite Nite - a new food festival featuring the best food in Rockford, Loves Park, Roscoe, Rockton and beyond. There will be live music, local beer, and wine. Tons of vendors will have taste size portions for sale for $1-$4 each. Admission is $5 and anyone under 12 is free.
We had the pleasure of joining our friends at the Rockford Country Club as they hosted the 41st Annual Rockford ProAm past Monday. We baked up our Country White Sourdough as well as the Baker & Brewer loaves for the bread station and got to meet a whole lot of great folks from around the community....also happy to report that our bread was up to par :) We want to thank RCC for including us and being such gracious hosts!
This week's special for the market is our Black Sage bread alongside the Olive Oil Semolina, Cranberry & Walnut, Baker & Brewer, and Country White loaves. Above is one of my favorite ways to eat the Black Sage - slather whipped cream cheese on the toast and top with smoked salmon, dill, as well as a sprinkling of salt & pepper. If you give it a try, let me know how you like it!
