Julia’s Kitchen – a Cafe and Bakery…

Hello friends!

I plan to get back to the regular recipe routine in a few weeks, but for now, I want to invite you to a sneak preview of Julia’s Kitchen this week. We still have some work to do, but I have missed making soup! Plus, what better way to figure out how to run this thing than to invite you all to come in while it’s a work in progress??

For the next few days, we’ll have soup and more available from 11am to 1pm. If you are so inclined, please come in and check the place out for lunch! If you stop by later in the day, you’re likely to find someone there building our inventory and willing to give you a little tour and a bowl of soup, but definitely from 11-1 or so! Our credit card machine is on its way, so for the first few days, it will be cash only. By the end of the week, we hope to have our bakery packed full and we’ll keep on adding new menu items until we have it how we want it! We’ll officially open when we know what we are doing:)

The address is 4457 Broadway. The cafe is set back and a little tricky to see from the street when you are coming up North on Broadway. We are on the West side of Broadway just North of Violet, in a little strip of stores – if you are familiar with North Boulder Cafe, we’re in that same strip. There are two entrances to the parking lot, so it you miss the first, just take the next one! We don’t have a sign yet, but the cafe is painted white with brown trim.

If all that hasn’t all scared you off, I would love to see some friendly faces there before our grand opening!

Tomorrow we will have:

Hoppin’ John (in the spirit of a good year to come!)
Red Lentil Coconut Curry Soup
White Bean Chili
Adaba Bars (almond, cashew pecan, tahini raisin, and apricot almond)
Raw Fig Bars
Raw Onion Crackers
Raw Kale Chips
Raw Cashew Coconut Macaroons
Raw Lemon Ginger Drops
Power Cookies

We’ll have some of the following…
Veggie Pancakes
Millet Bread
Ginger Pear Muffins

As the week goes on, we’ll add scones, brownies, sautes, dips, and more!

I am so excited and I hope to see you there!

Have a great week!

What’s happening at Adaba Foods?

The Boulder Farmers’ Market opens soon!  I will be there on Saturdays until the Wednesday market opens, then I’ll be there on Wednesdays only for the rest of the season.  Wednesdays are from 4pm until 8pm.  Saturdays begin April 4th…

I sell baked goods made from whole grains like amaranth, teff, millet, quinoa, etc, which all happen to be gluten free.  My products don’t contain dairy and most are vegan.  All are organic and made with the highest quality ingredients.   I disclose every ingredient at the stand, though below I’ll just list the main ones and leave things like baking powder and baking soda out. 

In addition to the Farmers’ Market, I take direct/special orders and I also teach cooking and baking classes.  I’m hoping to write a cookbook using local, seasonal ingredients, as well.  A note on special orders, please give me as much information as possible about your food restrictions/preferences.  I will do custom orders to accomodate you if I can! 

NEW for this year: I have started to work with sprouted whole grain quickbreads and some yeasted breads.  I will always one or more products made from whole, soaked and/or sprouted grains, which will also be vegan.   In addition, I now soak the flours for my crackers and will do my best to soak the flours for quickbreads, as well.    

I rotate my menu based on what is in season; part of my purpose is to help people connect with their food and part of that is knowing what grows when and where (hopefully nearby).  In general, I sell seasonal sweet breads, cookies, and bars, as well as savory crackers.  I’ll also take special requests.  In addition, I sell mixes (when it’s cool enough to bake) so that people can make their own creations!

Here are some products that might show up on the menu:

Please note that the menu will vary from week to week.  If there is something you are counting on (a loaf or a particular product), please check with me early in the week to let me know!
