Another great week at the Meet! We are always thrilled when we get to spend a day out in the Sun with Venice Folks and talk about good food done right. This past weekend was no exception as we got deep into conversation with customers about food, in between bites of delicious cookies and jams of course. Speaking of jams, once again we debuted our newest jams of the season!
This jam calls out for a celebration. Our Champelone jam marries the sweetness of summer melons with the sparkle of our favorite drink, Champagne! We can’t stop eating it paired with proscuitto and creamy cheeses. Made with Sugar Cube Melons from Weiser Family Farms, Raw Cane Sugar, Meyer Lemon from Garcia’s Orchards, Champagne and apple it is hard to put down.
This past weekend at the Meet the name of the game was Jam Tasting! We had all our flavors on parade and people were more than happy to get a little sticky. In addition to our Lemonilla Marmalade and Strawsilberry Jam that were a hit at the May Meet, we debuted three new jams! After being wiped out of our stock at the Meet, we spent this week whipping up more small batch jams using fresh produce from our favorite farmers at the Santa Monica Farmers Market just for you!
As usual, with the debut of new jams we have a JAM GIVEAWAY. Leave a comment about a memory involving jam and vote for one of the two new flavors below. Sunday we will draw a winner! Happy winning!
Red Bread recently popped up at The Venice Meet in May. It was wonderful to be out in the community and meet so many new Venice folk! We had our Garlic and Beer Baguettes out, and premiered a Classic Half Loaf. A young french man stopped by to tell us there was only disappointing bread to be found in the city. After tasting Red Bread, we received congratulations and comparisons to his hometown in France. Then he had an Apple Cake, and it was better than the cakes his mother made when he was a child! We are always thrilled when food can take you places.

I recently received The Blue Chair Jam Cookbook as a gift. It has been hard to get my attention over the last week, as I have been devouring the pages. Yes, I am one of those strange creatures who reads a cookbook cover to cover. I also highlight, make charts and tab them…a law school education can not go silently into the good night. Rachel Saunders absolute love of fruit comes through on every page and in every photo. Yes I know, it was published in 2010 so I may be late to this party but i think fashionably! And I’m willing to bet a lot of people still don’t know truly what a gem this book is.
