Pizza or Pissaladiere

Pizza

Pizza is a savoury dish of Italian origin, consisting of a usually round, flattened base of leavened wheat-based dough topped with tomatoes, cheese, and various other ingredients.

Pissaladiere

Pissaladière is a dish which originated from Nice in Southern France. The dough is usually a bread dough thicker than that of the classic pizza Margherita, and the traditional topping consists of caramelised onions and toppings of choice.

On a personal note, I like Pizza but often find the cheese a little too much, if not a little greasy whereas, for the Pissaladiere, instead of cheese I use a caramelised onion and tomato base which to me tastes a lot fresher.

What’s your preference?

What to look out for next week…..

Considering we make pasties and quiches we’ve decided, it doesn’t really matter, Bread Pudding is coming next week. So here’s our menu for next week.  You can reserve yours on our Facebook page, what order I make these goodies in is down to you. Whatever is reserved first, I make first.

Time & Love

Last Sunday, whilst watching Strictly, the results we received a phone call from a potential customer, “Hi, I would like a birthday cake” We said, not a problem, when for? “The morning” You can imagine my answer.

The other day, we were asked for chocolate doughnuts. Generally people will buy doughnuts from their local supermarket or Greggs. What you don’t realise is, they bring their stock in frozen and and can bake their doughnuts in just four minutes, not only that, I guess most of their cakes are factory made. So our doughnuts are put together, kneaded by hand and left to prove overnight, after that, they are shaped and left to prove for yet another hour. All that time and love go into all of our products.

Belgian, Cinnamon, Chelsea buns and to be honest any other dough products take at least 3 hours of proving, that’s not allowing for the preparation and cooking. So, with all our cakes, doughs, tarts, birthday cakes, a lot of planning goes in to our work.

We are more than happy to take orders and factor in to our week, but please understand we prefer to put our time and love in to everything we do.

Here’s our number, 07427 598930, just ask 🙂

Friday 26th October

The weekend starts tomorrow, generally we only bake sweet things, however, there was a request for a Pissaladière, a dish which originated from Nice in Southern France. Made with a bread dough thicker than that of a pizza topped with caramelised onions, black olives, and anchovies. I am going to have it ready for Saturday lunch time.

Tomorrow we will have, Vanilla Slices, Rocky Road, Triple Chocolate Brownies, Raspberry Bakewell Slices, Millionaire Shortbread , Chelsea Buns, Mince Pies and some Bienenstichs.

It was mentioned that my pastry was a little thick on my mince pies, so I have remedied this with a different pastry recipe.

Generally, we do update our Facebook posts as the goodies leave us, we also keep our online shop up to date, I find it easier to check that whereas Jen prefers Facebook.

 

Thursday 25th October

Thursday morning I will be baking more mince pies, raspberry bakewell slices and the vanilla slices are currently setting in the fridge ready for the morning. A local restaurant has ordered some individual strawberry cheesecakes, I have made 3 extra which will also be ready tomorrow morning.

When we put our advert out for Christmas Cakes we didn’t have a second oven, now we have the space we are able to take a couple more orders if you would like to order one.

Next Week, 23rd ~ 27th October

Next week, as usual we are taking Monday off but in reality we are baking for 3 different food outlets, so it’s a day off from driving all around Chepstow.

We are almost fully booked for Christmas Cakes, we have space for 2 more and then we can’t physical take any more booking, there quite simply won’t be enough oven space.

I enjoy making new things, so I’m hoping to make Bienenstich Kuchen for the first time and some pumpkin pies, but only if anyone wants some, so let me know.

We will have all our usual goodies Tuesday – Saturday delivering orders of £5+ to Chepstow, Bulwark, The Danes, Garden City, Sedbury & Tutshill.
