August is buzzing
July was a hot and busy month but we made it through our first time at the Green City Market BBQ and the annual Sheffield Garden Walk. On top of that, we added a beehive to our rooftop garden. We feel like new parents and hope our babies make some tasty honey.
August has arrived along with corn, peaches, plums and tomatoes. The abundance of local produce is reflected in the pastry case and on the menu, from BLTs and blackberry tarts, to corn salad and peach galettes. It’s a great time to come in and try something new.
Sunday Supper at Floriole – August 28th 6:30pm
Join us for a dinner that celebrates corn! Three courses for $30 and there is a special $15 menu for kids 12 and under.
cucumber ribbons, cherry tomatoes, corn and poblano pepper vinaigrette

For the month of August we are collaborating with Meg Galus, executive pastry chef at Boka, Swift & Sons and Momotaro. She is a French Pastry School graduate and was a finalist for the James Beard Award for Outstanding Pastry Chef.
The collaboration bar is chocolate marshmallow topped with black raspberry pate de fruit on a buckwheat crunch base and the bar is enrobed in Illanka chocolate.
The best part about this collaboration is that we will be donating $1 for each bar sold to the Valrhona Clean Water Project.
