Lots of people come to Fiore Market Cafe for our Tempeh Bacon, Lettuce, Avocado and Lettuce Sandwich. When we first opened we were pretty stubborn about offering a real bacon version of the sandwich, but after so many requests we relented. Today’s version features our own heirloom tomatoes. Bravo.
These photographs were taken by Vivian who is a dear friend of Ying who has been a regular customer from the day we opened. Ying and her husband Jerry and their son Jeremy come often and especially like our grilled pizza. We hope to do a pizza class on soon.
We had twelve students in the bread class . The night was cool. We worked outside on the garden patio. We made our rustic loaf, baguettes and foccaccia. It was definitely hands on. Each student made a loaf of bread and they took a hot out of the oven loaf home at the end of the class.
Here are some photographs taken by Mackenzie Forman.
We had a terrific show last night at Fiore Market Cafe. Hergeto played a 30 minute set. Hergeto is folk group consisting of three members, Piry Chavarin, Katie Spencer and Piry’s friend Martin. Piry works for us at Fiore. Katie is our niece who at one time worked at Fiore. After Hergeto finished Anne’s brother Paul joined Katie for a set of his original music. We will continue having music on the weekend nights. This Friday Riner Scivally will perform from 6:30 til 7:30. Stop on by.
Last night we had Affogatos with homemade vanilla ice cream. We’ll have them again on Friday night.
We have two new conserves on the counter one is Fig, Orange and Garden Chili Pepper . The other is Yellow Nectarine, Pistachio in a Fruit Tea Syrup. A conserve is similar to a jam, but it is cooked less and the fruit remains whole. It’s great to use on grilled meats such as lamb and pork. They’re also terrific with cheese.
Here are a few photographs from the day:

The garden is doing great. Take a look. Added a new raised bed this week.
