Good Summer Food on the Way
Guess what? I saw my first two Heritage tomatoes from Kirkland Farms last Saturday. So we know that very soon we will be serving BLTs. We only serve BLTs when we have beautiful, fabulous, tasty tomatoes. So from sometime next week until shortly after the first frost you will be able to get the magic combination of Sarkozy Oatmeal Bread, Pat Smith Heritage Tomatoes, and Carlson Farms Bacon.
Here is a glimpse of our future!
Not only that, we are going to have another Kalamazoo Farmers Market Supper!
The Second Kalamazoo Farmers Market Supper is going to be on Sunday evening August 4th. It will take place at the bakery. We are keeping them small and limited to approximately 25 people.

The cost will be $38 per person, and there will be staggered reservations for seating between 6:00 pm and 7:30 pm. Please call Chef Manning at (917) 562-3137 to make your reservation.
The last one showed us some of the seasoning and skill of Chef Steven Manning. For those of you who don't know, Steven was born and raised in the Kalamazoo area and has worked as a chef for 35 years in New Orleans, Dallas and New York City. The bounty of Michigan farms and gardens he knew while growing up has inspired and informed much of his cooking. Chef Manning relishes the opportunity to showcase these splendid materials in a series of supper parties at Sarkozy Bakery this summer.
See you Soon,
