MI Chestnut Baguettes
We were so inspired by Zingerman’s Delicatessen partner Rodger Bowser’s work to promote Michigan chestnuts and the abundance of chestnuts in Hungarian foods, we created a chestnut bread. We tested this bread for months using a recipe developed at BAKE!, our hands-on baking school. Great flour is one of the building blocks for great bread and here the flours are the stars. We’re using chestnut flour from Michigan Chestnut Growers in Grand Haven, MI and wheat flour from Westwind Mill in Linden, MI. This naturally leavened baguette has a rich tan and slightly purple colored crumb and a crust so gorgeous you’ll want to photograph it. It got rave reviews from staff and customers alike when it debuted in November and it was wildly popular for the holidays. Stop in and taste it for yourself! You’ll want to get busy looking for pairings of cheeses, meats, spreads and wines. Enjoy!
Available Friday-Sunday at Zingerman’s Bakehouse, Delicatessen or Roadshow.
