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!
