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
