This is the bread I bought in the Olympia Farmers Market with the Flying Pig over it, to honor my father. Rubens were made with this true Eastcoast style rye bread. Delectable, with true bite, tender bubbles dancing through the dough, subtle scents of rye notes, and the zing of caraway. I do not want to start bread wars. But there are no bakeries in the Astoria, Oregon area creating sourdough, caraway, rye like this. Or within the Lower Columbia Region. Good enough for morning toast, tofu salad sandwiches, Rubens or Rachels. I love you Blue Heron Bakery.
This book is my new personal favorite. Jennifer Harrington Jones is wacky and fun. Lots of delicious food descriptions. Kinda wish there were recipes included. Liked learning about the covert world of pottery.
Kilned Again – A fun read. Lots I didn’t know about the art world and the underhanded dealing of human smugglers.
Kilned Again’s teenage skateboarders rock in this mystery. A potter brings to light clandestine shenanigans in the Pacific Northwest with lush details of art, food, and environment.
