    Abby Jane Bakeshop: Opening

    Wow. Like we needed another excuse to visit Treaty Oak Distilling and its array of Hill Country excellence out there on Fitzhugh Road? Still, this is the new bakery from chef Abby Love (of Dai Due, Qui, and Vespaio fame), and she's creating delicious breads and pastries from heritage grains grown in Texas. Of course heritage grains: Barton Springs Mill is in the same facility. "The 2500-square-foot space includes a nine-foot window into the mill room at BSM, and the kitchen is entirely open, so guests can see everything that goes on in the process – from the flour being milled to the ovens where the pastries and breads are baked." And, for this Thursday's celebration, listen: "The opening menu features such items as jam-stuffed scones, smoked beet and rye berry salad, beet hummus with za'atar, citrus cream layer cake, olive and seed-studded sourdoughs, whole grain pumpernickel, and a buffalo chickpea pizza served with blue cheese dressing." Oh, you know you want to be where this is happening, right? What a fine day of relaxation and indulgence!
    Opening: Thu., Jan. 21, 9am-4pm

    Food Access Resources from SFC

    We have to admit it's getter better, but we've still got a ways to go in dealing with this pandemic. The Sustainable Food Center has put together a thorough compilation of food access resources for Central Texans, ranging from farmers' markets to CSAs to delivery options and everything in between, so you can ensure that healthy food stays on your table. And if you're able to contribute they're accepting online donations, which support farmers and low-income families facing food insecurity. Get all the details on their website.

    Pressed Juicery: New Year, New Journeys

    The Pressed Juicery, that bright bastion of plant-based goodness in the Domain (that we reported about at the start of October), kicks off the new year with a juice fast deal and a sneak peek at the company's graphic redesign, offering half-day juice fasts ($20, for a series of four juices and one shot, that you finish with a plant-based meal) and full-day juice cleanses ($29, which includes six juices per day, with one juice consumed every two hours). What a healthy way for you to ditch the dumpster fire of 2020, citizen!

    This community initiative, headed by Chris Cubas and Maris Clegg, is dedicated to providing free meals (of red beans and rice, andouille sausage, cornbread, fruit, dessert, and a drink) to Austinites in need. "On Tuesdays, we will provide a link to sign up for a free home-made meal delivered to you with safety in mind," goes their announcement on Facebook. "There is no judgment and the form is anonymous. If you have been affected by the impact of Covid-19 or are having a hard time, we would like to make a small portion of your day a little bit better." Or, if you'd like to donate your time in driving, baking treats, or providing cases of non-alcoholic beverages, please reach out to redbeansaustin@gmail.com.

Information is power. Support the free press, so we can support Austin.   Support the Chronicle
