Janet’s Corner

Posted by David Bowles on Saturday, January 30, 2016

I touch the dough, I talk to the dough. We argue and, yes, even laugh from time to time. The bread begins as simply flour, water, salt. Just that. Flour, water, salt.  Then it becomes a living thing. I pour hard work and love into every step of the process. One simply needs to pay attention. Depending on temperature and humidity, I get know each batch, and every one is a little bit different. It’s an investment that is well worth the effort. You will know this if you have tried our bread.

I have had many conversations about food made with love and whether or not love affects the outcome. Of course… I believe it does. I think of my bread and how much love and energy I put into each loaf. Bread with machines, bread that is never touched by human hands; is it nutritionally the same? Can it taste as good? Maybe. But does your soul get fed by dough that was never nurtured, that never really lived, was never really loved?

    Just had another wonderful evening tonight at Bethany’s Table. Came in at 6:00 and left around 9:00 with 4 of my work colleagues for a big send-off celebration. Love the no stress environment, great food and wine and the casual ambience that allows the diner to enjoy time with friends and family. I am losing track of how many thoroughly enjoyable meals I’ve had with my wife, friends and work colleagues at your wonderful restaurant. I am a broken record on recommending your restaurant to friends and colleagues. I am sorry to hear that The Table didn’t work out, but am super excited that you’ll be able to fully devote your time and energy to making Bethany’s Table even more awesome. Yay!
