Marble Ticket

            If you’ve ever seen the movie Charlie and the Chocolate Factory we have got a special for you that will really knock your socks off. As part of our Bread Month celebration we are having our very own Golden Ticket event. Our “Marble Ticket” is a play on the classic Wonka Bar Golden Ticket. Here’s how to play:

1.      Purchase a loaf of Caraway Rye bread between April 15th and April 17th.

2.      Cut the bread.

3.      If the bread is marbled you have won!

4.      If at home take a picture to show a staff member on your next visit.

5.      Win the ultimate Atwater’s prize; an Atwater’s sweatshirt and a tour of our Big Kitchen where we make all our soup, pastry, bread, ice cream, jam, and more!

We are very excited to be hosting this contest! The winners will get to embark on a journey through all of the delicious crafts that the Big Kitchen makes. We can’t promise you that there will be Oompa Loompas, but we can promise you it will be a fun day. Stop in to any Atwater’s location this weekend to try your hand at finding the lucky loaf! Good luck!

Salad Dressing

                We are excited to announce that our salad dressings are now on the shelves! Over the years we are always asked about selling our delicious dressings in store. Well the time has come when that dream becomes a reality! We offer our Balsamic Vinaigrette, Raspberry Almond Vinaigrette, Herb Vinaigrette, and Green Goddess dressings for purchase. Made in small batches at our Big Kitchen in Baltimore, MD these dressings will not disappoint!

Fresno Pepper Jam

            We are excited to introduce a new addition to our jam line! While you may be familiar with our sweet jams and spreads we are adding a savory kick to the product line. Introducing our Fresno Pepper Jam, a slightly spicy pepper jelly that is perfect for the arrival of Spring. The jam is made with Fresno peppers, red bell peppers, organic sugar, apples, lemons, limes, and oranges. Crafted from scratch at the Big Kitchen by our jam team, we are proud to bring you the best red pepper jam possible. Rounds of adjustments and alterations led us to this delicious recipe that we can’t get enough of. Our Fresno Pepper Jam is great as a sandwich relish, cheese plate accompaniment, or just by itself on some crusty bread or crackers. Personally I like to dip some pretzels in a jar of it for a mid-afternoon snack at my desk. Be careful though, this jam is so delicious you might finish the whole jar in one day!

            If you’re having a Spring soiree this jam makes a colorful addition to your cheese plate. Pair with baguette slices and a soft chevre and your guests will thank you! Or if you’re firing up the grill add it to your condiment table. Imagine a juicy burger or hotdog with caramelized onions, melty cheese, and a kick from fresno pepper. The flavor that finishes all other flavors. Food for all five senses. Stop in to pick up a jar today!

Pi(e) Day

            Today, March 14th, is Pi(e) Day! That means all slices of pie are $3.14 in honor of that good ole mathematical constant, Pi. Pi is what you would call an “irrational number” but there’s nothing irrational about eating as much pie as you can right? We didn’t think so. So come in to any Atwater’s location and join us for Apple Pie, Apple Ginger Pie, and Lemon Meringue Pie. Chase away those Monday blues with some sun and sweets. Who says math can’t be delicious? 

St. Paddy's Day!

            March is underway and that means everybody is gearing up for their favorite green holiday. I’m talking about St. Paddy’s Day of course. We’ve got the green fever and our bakers and chefs are cranking out all sorts of goodies. On the savory side there’s Corned Beef and Cabbage Scottish Pies along with our Colcannon Soup. If you’re lucky enough to be eating your corned beef at our Belvedere Square, Hopkins, or Canton Crossing locations wash it down with an ice cold beer.
         

  On the sweeter side of things we have cookies, cupcakes, and soda bread. More on soda bread in a minute. Our stout cupcakes are made with Guinness stout beer and they are a “can’t miss” of the season. The cupcakes are iced with our mocha icing that highlights but doesn’t overpower the flavor of the chocolate stout. If cupcakes aren’t your thing (worrisome) and you’re looking for another sweet treat pick up an Iced Shamrock or Bag of Sugar Cookies.

             Now let’s talk about our soda bread. Soda bread is a type of quick bread that utilizes baking soda as its leavening agent, hence the name. But Atwater’s Soda Bread goes to a whole new level. With currants, orange zest, and caraway seeds our Soda Bread has a more complex flavor profile than your run of the mill quick bread. Always popular and always delicious, head in to any Atwater’s location to grab a loaf today!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day from all of us at Atwater’s!

            

Pajama Brunch

    Something big is happening at our Canton Crossing location this Sunday, February 21st. Two of the greatest things in the world are coming together in one beautiful event. On this momentous day Canton will be hosting its very first Pajama Brunch. That’s right. A Pajama. Brunch. Wear your PJs to Canton and get free bottomless coffee or free hot cocoa for the kids. Imagine coming into brunch in your PJs and being served endless cups of steaming hot Counter Culture coffee. If that isn’t an ideal Sunday, I don’t know what is.  

   So get those PJs pressed and ready and join us this Sunday at Canton for a great event!
