IN THE NEWS WITH BREAD AND FLOURS - A CHANCE TO SHARE OUR WEEKLY THOUGHTS
We are back!
Jim...They are back, I thought they never left?
Yes, we never left, we were awaiting our mill to be once again operational to grind fresh flour for our loaves!
We have recalibrated with brute strength, literally, our new millstone onto our mill.
Our mill is up and running and we are grinding fresh flour once again. This is foundational for our commitment to the healthiest and freshest bread in the Coachella Valley. This was an opportunity to test our metal, as they say. We would like to thank the team at Pleasant Hill Grain out of Nebraska, Darren Necker of Pleasant Hill Grain, and Bahnson's Machine Shop in Palm Springs. Specifically Enrique Cota at Bahnson's, whose patience, fortitude and assistance was foundational in getting our mill back up and running. Thank you Enrique! It took a village and we are forever grateful.
Debbie Wong and her family have a beautiful farm in Mecca. They grow delicious vegetables and fruit.
From time to time Bread and Flours will have access to some of their "peak fruit and vegetables".
The fun part of this is that we don't know when! When the opportunity comes we take it!
January 19th, Tuesday, on the Bread and Flours "shop page" we will be listing tri-colored squash and basil just picked and locally grown! Don't miss out! Farm Fresh just picked literally! Guaranteed.
"Share a Loaf "
At times we have "gifted" a loaf to our clients, and we will say or leave a note saying, "to enjoy or share". Today one of our regular customers shared with me that she gave the loaf with some of her chicken noodle soup to some friends who are battling COVID. It made my day. In that spirit and inspiration, Bread and Flours will gift a loaf of "SoCal Sourdough 2.0" to a client who knows a friend, neighbor, or family member that is battling COVID. When you place an order with us, just send us an email letting us know that you would like to "share a loaf". We will add a loaf of our "SoCal Sourdough 2.0" to your order at no charge. Please be safe and follow Covid protocols when you deliver. We will add a note to your order, with the name of the person and well wishes for healing. Thank you.

For all gourmands in your home or in your restaurant, a perfect compliment for presentations for your table are these delicious sun-ripened on the vine "Flame Raisins" grown and picked in Thermal, CA. ( local) Each cluster of these seedless grapes is managed in their natural state as a whole cluster of fruit before being packaged as a whole cluster of raisins. Then at the optimal time, they are hand-picked at their peak of ripeness, these are plump, big, and satisfying raisins. As you bite into one, your mouth is filled with the richness of the raisin and a boatload of complexity on your palate. You can guarantee Bread and Flours will be incorporating some of these beauties in future recipes. You can add them to your homemade muesli, oatmeal, scones, french toast, muffins, or cookies. Don Kirzian is the founder and innovator, with his team they have created a beautiful presentation. With proper storage, and /or refrigeration these will last up to 12 months.

HELLENIC FARMS FIG SALAMI - 100% Plant Based - $10.00 each
Hellenic Farms are curators of world-class Greek products. Vivianna, the owner, is sourcing directly from the archipelago these exceptional food products and started her company in 2013 after moving from Greece for love. Together with her husband, they spoke to local producers about this idea of putting together dried figs into a salami. These Fig Salamis are 100% plant-based and made with whole ingredients. They are GMO-free, with no added sugar, and are gluten-free. Bread and Flours had the opportunity to try these and we were smitten. We are thrilled to debut these two flavors in the Coachella Valley: The Dried Greek Figs Orange Zest Pepper, and Dried Greek Fig Almonds Black Pepper. For the gourmand in all of us, these would pair fondly for your start to the evening, with a glass of wine or nibbling throughout the day snacking away. These completely plant-based salamis will also pair with your favorite greek olives as the perfect party snack. Whatever your “thang” we hope you find these an easy goto staple in your pantry

JUST MAPLE GRANOLA -$12.75
ONE FULL POUND of Granola Goodness. Here we have our delicious granola produced with real organic maple syrup and no added cane sugar. Maple Syrup has so many astounding health benefits we thought it only made sense to use organic maple syrup in our “Just Maple” Granola. “Just Maple” is still bursting with Organic Saigon Cinnamon, California Pecans and Pecan Pieces, California Almonds, Organic Oats, Coconut, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Organic Coconut Oil, and Pink Himalayan Salt.
"Just Maple” goodness is still packaged in our biodegradable box and bag. Go for it!

(due to seasonality, our preserves rotate - all our preserves and conserves are plant-based)
Kristin's Organic Blueberry Preserves - $12.75 per jar
Like all of our preserves, we are constantly striving for an end product that is not too sweet and one that allows the true flavor of the fruit to shine. Though we love blueberry preserves (and pie), we often find that the sugar overpowers the fruit, and makes it hard to enjoy more than a bite. For this recipe, we slow-cooked the organic blueberries with just the needed amount of sugar and some freshly squeezed lemon juice. The result is a pop of chunky blueberry preserves with just a hint of acidity from the lemon juice. Perfectly balanced, just how we like all of our jarred concoctions. Ingredients - Organic Blueberries, sugar, and lemon.
8 fluid oz in a glass jar.
Kristin’s Citrus Marmalade with Vanilla Bean - $10.50 per jar
We love the complex layers that various citrus fruits bring to this marmalade. Tart grapefruit, soft orange, and bright lemon simmered down with sugar and aromatic vanilla bean. The vanilla takes a back seat to the tartness of the citrus but somehow mellows out the overall flavor.
Grapefruits, Oranges, Lemons, Vanilla Bean, Sugar.
8 fluid oz in a glass jar
OLIVE OIL / BALSAMIC VINEGAR:
IMPERIAL VALLEY CALIFORNIA OLIVE MILL - Extra Virgin Olive Oil - 250ml - $15.00 a bottle
The Barioni family has four generations of agricultural knowledge and history in the Imperial Valley. This family produces estate olives and citrus. At Bread and Flours, we are proud to be the first to bring this to our customers in the Coachella Valley. This Extra Virgin olive oil is the first cold press of the olives at their Mill. They use a mixture of Koroneiki, Arbosana, and Arbequina olives for the first cold press to produce the finest extra virgin olive oil. The Barioni's use no pesticides or chemicals on their olive trees and this oil has a distinct flavor of green, mellow notes giving you a little tickle in the back of your throat. Extra Virgin olive oil is considered to be the healthiest type of olive oil and it is the least processed. We believe you will agree that is some amazing olive oil.
250ml Darkened Glass Bottle - 8.45 fluid oz
IMPERIAL VALLEY CALIFORNIA OLIVE MILL - Estilo Affinato a Modena Balsamic Vinegar - 250ml - $18.00 a bottle
Given as a gift to Countess Matilde of Canossa from Emperor Henry II in 1046, Balsamic Vinegar of Modena, Italy, was used at the time as an elixir with the ancient recipe being passed through the generations from father to son for centuries. Balsamic Vinegar of Modena has been known to be a highly sought after condiment with therapeutic qualities. This "25 Star" rated Balsamic from Modena, Italy, continues to use the time-honored tradition using Trebbiano grapes that are heated and reduced down by 40% through evaporation and placed into cherry, chestnut, oak, and juniper barrels. At that point, the process continues and aged in the next set of barrels and so on until you have this beautiful rich dark dense liquid that is bursting with a range of flavors that dances on your palate.
250ml Darkened Glass - Imported from Italy - 8.45 Fluid oz
SOURDOUGH BREAD LOAVES:
An homage to the heritage of SF sourdough. Bread and Flours takes it a step further. We add local fresh house-milled Yecora Rojo ( local hard red wheat) from the Imperial Valley for greater developed flavors and more rusticity. Even this loaf has your health and wellness in mind by adding whole grain and using all the parts of the whole seed into your biodome or your gut, with nothing ever removed or stripped. The numerous health benefits of choosing and incorporating whole grains into your diet will help develop a better you. We believe this loaf continues to be right in line with our mission and values of using whole grain. Additionally, we maintain the California Grain Campaign standard for all bakers to use 20% Whole grains by 2020. We believe and value whole grain, and we also believe in building a better loaf and supporting a healthy community for future generations. To your health!
Stone Ground 20% Yecora Rojo Flour and 80% Organic Hard Red Wheat Flour, Sourdough culture, Filtered Water, Pink Himalayan Salt
"Yes to Yecora" Sourdough - Loaf Pan - $8.75
Yecora Rojo is the staple grain of this delicious bread. A grain, that has mild nuanced flavors. Soft, mellow, a stepping stone grain for those interested in diving into bolder flavors on the scale. Yecora Rojo was developed by the International Maize & Wheat Improvement Center in Cooperation with the Mexican Ministry of Agriculture in Mexico. One single grain and one hundred percent of fresh house milled stone-ground Yecora Rojo. This grain is grown, picked, and bagged in the Imperial Valley, and is a hard red wheat.
The complete seed and all its components are used in this loaf.

Organic Pima Club Sourdough - Loaf Pan - $12.00
I am grateful to Kurt, one of our grain guys, who introduced me to this Organic Pima Club. Little did I know, through our hot summer, there was gold right before our eyes were waiting to be discovered. This grain was thought to be extinct and was re-established on the Gila River Indian Reservation with the "Akiemel O'Odham" ( Pima, River people). This is one of the four varieties believed to have been brought to the region by an Italian Franciscan priest Father Eusebio Kino and exchanged with the natives. A well-known explorer, cartographer, missionary, and astronomer proved that the California Baja was not an island. He also was a defender on behalf of the Native people fighting against European settlers who attempted to enslave the natives. Today we bring you this beautiful Organic Pima Club Sourdough loaf, with organic raw unsalted sunflower seeds mixed into the crumb along with "sprouted" organic pumpkin seeds sprinkled on the top. The soaking and sprouting of the seeds help accessibility to the seeds beneficial nutrients. One would think that baking the seeds would harm them, yet baking increases certain bio-availability for our micro-biome to access these nutrients. Both seeds provide magnesium, copper, and zinc; studies suggest magnesium can increase our bone health and density. This is soft white wheat, that is awnless ( no long wheat hair connected to the seed casing) that is short, squat wheat, with a short head, differing from other grain varieties these short heads are called “club” grains or wheat, hence Pima Club. Along with the beautiful beige color from the fresh ground, house milled grain of the Pima Club, and the sunflower seeds' added texture in this loaf, make this a winner.
100% Organic Loaf + 100% Whole Wheat
Stone Ground Organic Pima Club Flour, Organic Sunflower Seeds, Organic Sprouted Pumpkin Seeds, Sourdough Culture, Filtered Water, Pink Himalayan Salt
"The All-Love Sourdough - Boule Shape - $10.75
Since we are in desert, even on these beautiful 70F "Winter" days, you cannot go wrong with this loaf. So when we were putting together our "Olive" loaf, we thought "All-Love" had a better ring and message for us. This loaf has 30% House milled Stone Ground Yecora Rojo, 70% Organic Hard Red Wheat, California Manzanilla Olives, Lemon Zest, and Herbes de Provence. It is perfect for the person that is looking for savory with a hint of zippy lemons.
A wonderful combination.
