Springing into Toast Bar!

IMG-7788.JPG

While we wait for spring to come to Blue Oven Farm we also look forward to our produce to kick into full gear.  In looking forward we began to plan ahead for the exciting new food items, and we're doing so by bringing new Toast Bar items to the menu.  We started last week with two new Toast Bar options! We mixed Nutella with caramelized banana and topped it with toasted hazelnuts on one toast and we created a cacio e pepe compound butter and topped it with grated pecorino cheese and lemon zest!  Head out to Toast Bar this week to get a taste of the new flavors on the menu! 

In Case You Missed It-CityBeat Awards and Transitioning Into Market Summer

Peppers Chard.jpg

In case you missed it, we got great news last week!  You once again voted us the Best Bakery (Breads), Best Findlay Market Vendor and Best Farmers' Market Food Stand as well as a nod behind two great bakeries in Downtown/OTR.  Your support in Cincinnati CityBeat's Best of Cincinnati Awards each year propels us into the outdoor market season with momentum, and we can't wait to celebrate with you all summer long!

Speaking of the outdoor market season, though it may not seem that way, the summer markets are closer than you think.  During the month of April some of our markets begin to transition outdoors at their winter market locations, so if the weather is nice, start to look for us under the Blue Oven tent!

Though it also seems far away, it won't be long before we're sharing fresh fruits and veggies from Blue Oven Farm with you in the shape of breads, croissants and more!  Stay tuned for more news from the farm!

The St. Louis Fish Fry, in Owensville

StLouisFishFry.jpg

Year in and year out, our neighbors at the St. Louis Catholic Church in Owensville host one of the most popular Fish Fry events during the Lent season, and in 2018 they're up to the same!  They've been a supporter of ours, and so we support them by delivering our brioche buns to accompany their fish sandwich.  Along with a great menu that you can find here, you can also pair your meal with a beer from Old Firehouse Brewery (another Blue Oven neighbor).  It's a great event, and we're happy they're getting the recognition they deserve.  The Fish Fry is held in the St.
Louis School Gym, 250 N. Broadway in Owensville, and there are only two more Fridays for the even in 2018, so head out this week, and don't miss out!

Blue Oven Employee Culture!

Blue Oven Jobs Photo.jpg

Along with sending great bread, croissants and English Muffins out to the farmers' markets, grocery stores and restaurants we serve in the Cincinnati area; one of the primary goals at Blue Oven is to build a strong team with a wide array of interests, experience, and strengths.  We've assembled quite a group of individuals who accomplish great feats day-in and day-out, and they deserve all the recognition in the world for keeping Blue Oven moving in the right direction.   At Blue Oven we strive to achieve a culture that is built on each Culture Club Pillar. Over the past several months, we've begun to recognize the employees who have exemplified those characteristics with a gift and a place among our Blue Oven Culture Club winners.  Each vote is cast by the employees at Blue Oven along with a note for why that vote was cast, and it serves as a reminder that the people you work see the hard work you put in for the group. We look forward to seeing the hard work from our team continue, and we can't wait to watch our list of Culture Club winners grow!
