Weekend Update

Northern Cali: Another busy weekend, another amazing meal from Chef Matt.  Our Northern Cali menu, which one could have feared would have been a bland rendition of pulses, quinoa, and brown rice, was brought alive by Chef Matt's ingenuity.  The savory fruit salad was, as he says, "banging", his dal was rich and hearty, and the toasted quinoa salad, which was really more porridge than salad, had almost a glutinous, silken deliciousness.  Also, shouts to David Mills and Jessee, two NCCU music students, for playing jazz during the evening - it set a nice tone.  My fave track of the night: "In a Sentimental Mood".

One question I get a lot is, "So, how is it going?"  We have been remaking the bakery bit by bit since early September, and in spite of (or perhaps because of) a lot of early mornings and late nights, our customers are happy and sales are moving the right way.  But most of all, the crew is having a lot of fun.  Chef Matt, Jacqueline, and the kitchen crew work extremely hard every day to bring you their best, and our bread and pastry teams are consistently going above the call of duty to tweak recipes and production processes that result in improved product.  We continue to look forward to your feedback, and all that Ninth Street Bakery has yet to bring!
