Greetings from the farm! It looks as though we have broken the wet spell with lots of glorious sunshine for a while. This should kick our tomato plants into gear. It will also, however mean the end of the cauliflower, strawberries, broccoli, and cabbage. Those spring things are giving way to the field tomatoes, squashes, peppers and summer berries.
Green Door Gourmet is thrilled to have our own “Muffin Man,” John Stills, baker extraordinaire! Last week John had the whole farm abuzz with his selection of killer muffins… lemon ricotta, chocolate zucchini, blueberry orange and more! They were huge delicious handcrafted pieces of delight! John is a philosophy major, so perhaps he is intrigued by the question “to bake or not to bake?” That said, he does want to know what YOU want! Here is a brief bio from the man himself:
“I am a 24 year old baker, native to Nashville, who enjoys Philip Glass, Vaclav Havel, and excessive amounts of coffee. Tired of working for The Man as an underpaid wage slave I have recently decided to work for myself. I have a degree in Philosophy from Belmont University and hope one day to continue my studies; in the meantime, I enjoy experimenting in the kitchen, playing with power tools, riding bicycles, cutting up rugs, honky-tonkin’, limericks, and doo wop. I am tall, dark, handsome,( ????) with a heart of gold and the soul of a gypsy, and I know the sacred secrets of cheesecakes. My passion for the unusual rivals only my passion for palette-satisfaction. If you have a specific request, interesting flavor ideas, questions about pricing, or other feedback of any kind, please feel free to e-mail me at email@example.com!”
If you want to preorder something fantastic you can contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org and he will have it here for you on Saturday morning. He will have some new things to try this week at the farm so don’t miss out on coffee and a muffin while you are shopping!
