This weekend (Sept. 4th – Sept 7th), we will be celebrating the launch of our Wheat Project in the Oliveto Cafe. With the Bay Bridge closed and the Labor Day holiday, this will be a laid-back, late summer shindig with a street-fair feel and some great food, served throughout the day and into the night. Pastry chef Jenny Raven tells us about what she’s got planned and conducts a taste test with her eleven-month-old son Ofelio.

From the street cart:

Crêpes with warm Gravenstein apples


Ratatouille-stuffed schiacciata


Merlot Grape focaccia

all made with true whole-milled hard red winter wheat


Fresh-milled polenta with ragù

In the restaurant:

We’ll be serving whole-milled Durum pappardelle

    glad to see it correctly labeled on sign!
    Schiacchiata con l’uva is a tradtional Tuscan sweet bread made now at the wine harvest.

    We usually use Uva Fragola, which are not legal for wine making, sometimes called Clinton!

    My local bakery makes a fig one, but we do two layers for bread with fruit so comes out jammy!
