March certainly came in like a lion here, with subzero temps and bitter winds blowing.. The extra minutes of daylight bring us spinach, baby pac choi and cucumbers from local farms, and help make the kitchen a cosy spot on chilly afternoons; the perfect place for a baking project (or two).
Bakewell Cream has been a New England baking staple since World War 2, when cream of tartar shortages spurred Maine chemist Byron H. Smith into formulating a replacement. It is a leavener par excellence, adding extra lift and volume to all sorts of baked goods (most famously, biscuits; a recipe is on the back of the tin), without cream of tartar’s aftertaste. Whip up a batch of biscuits for an extra special pot pie, or make lofty pancakes with no buttermilk required; try it anywhere you use baking powder. And speaking of baking powder, we also have Bakewell Cream’s version in house. Like Bakewell cream, it is aluminum, gluten and GMO free.
No judgment here if you don’t have the time or energy to bake from scratch this week. Butterfly Bakery can help out with Earl Grey & Orange snaps or Raspberry & Almond cookies if you need something sweet, or take a little shortcut and try Chelsea Approved’s new Snickerdoodle mix.
Seneca Grain & Bean grow heirloom organic flours and grains in upstate NY for restaurants and bakeries. Their commitment to making great organic grains more available extends to building a processing facility for other North East farms, so that we can all enjoy more locally grown beans, pulses and grains. We have their winter lentils, navy beans and chickpeas in house now, and are very excited to add freekeh, a green toasted spelt wheat with incredible nutty flavor, to our grain options. Try it wherever you use rice for a slightly smoky alternative, or make the best grain salads ever. And for all those baking projects with the Bakewell Cream, we are thrilled to have found a source for organic raw sugar, grown and milled in Colombia.
Join us in celebrating Trenchers Farmhouse and the appearance of THREE of their amazing pastas on this year's Good Food Awards shortlist.

If you haven't tried their pasta yet, treat yourself to some this week and see what all the fuss is about; you can also sign up for a free "Cook Along" class and pick up some great recipes from these amazing chefs.
