Madame Croissant’s
Summer Wedding Dilemma ...

Madame Croissant


... as my intended, Massimo Panettone, Duca di Ciabatta (“Momo” to his intimates), will not make up his mind and set a date for our wedding. GRRRrrrr! Italians … really! I sure wish that Momo had picked up a few pointers from his Dear Friend Graf von Sonnenblumenkernenbrot, who despite his womanizing ways, knew how to run a tight ship and say ja at the right time!
Well, as you can see I’m plowing full steam ahead and at the very least making sure that my family bridal tiara is all ready to go at a moment’s notice, all spit and polished!
Anyway, the good news is that I’ve figured out our entire wedding dinner menu with the fabulous Executive Chef Bruce Young, so at least that’s in the hopper and is one less thing on my “to-do list.” Now if I can only get Momo to pull himself together and commit. I certainly hope that our close friendship with Silvio Berlusconi (now he’s fun!) isn’t throwing a wrench in our wedding plans…

Bruce Young Salisbury Breads Blog
I'm in the Mood for Cornsticks — This time of year we have a lot of people coming into the bakery looking for things to take to a friend’s house for supper, picnics and cookouts. I can barely keep up with the demand for pies, and well, as for the gluten-free brownies … they fly out of the place! But today, I thought I'd share a recipe about a real summer special ... and that’s cornbread. Read more & leave your comments; we'd love to hear from you.

Cucumber Pea SoupCucumber and Pea Soup!

Two of our chilled-soup summer favorites! Minted Spring Pea ... which is not only delicious but just happens to be a staggeringly beautiful color, and our lovely cooling, refreshing Yogurt-Cucumber. These are always available, but if there’s a nip in the air ... please call or stop by to see what Bruce has got up his sleeve in the soup department!

Overflowing Berry PiesOur Succulent Overflowing Pies

... have made a real impact. These are the real deal: Mixed Berry Crumble, French Apple, Pecan — even Pumpkin year round — are some of the yummy pies that are baked daily. But now that summer is upon us, it’s Bruce’s Key Lime Pie that we can’t manage to keep in the fridge! Best to call ahead, as they FLY out of the place!

If you have a favorite — please let us know!

ChallahChallah—Beautiful & Delicious

Our Challah is made and sold on Friday for the Sabbath. And if there's any left over, it is delicious used as day-old bread in French Toast, or if you have the time and energy, try Bruce’s trick of slicing it very thin and layering it in a summer pudding!

GranolaOur Famous Homemade Granola

We know what you're thinking: Granola, Schmanola, what's so special about that? But this stuff is truly awesome — great for breakfast, most excellent for snacking. Bruce has been perfecting his recipe for years ... and because of the parents of local boarding school kids ... we now fill orders from all over the country!

Tomato-Olive-Onion TartTomato, Caramelized Onion &
Olive Tart

With a green salad and a glass of white wine, these tarts make for a real summer luncheon or supper treat! They were originally done only occasionally but have become so popular, that Bruce is making them quite regularly. Still: Since this is a true specialty, it’s always best to call ahead and reserve or pre-order.
