French Berry Rolls
Our famous French berry rolls sell out practically every day. Now, you can bake them at home. But be warned — to do it right, you'll need to create your own all-natural chef and white starter first. Not for novice bakers.

Portobello, Swiss Chard, and Goat Cheese with Walnut Pesto
This sandwich is filled with wonderful textures and flavors. The walnut pesto offers a quiet, underlying flavor to the sharpness of the goat cheese and the sweetness of the bell peppers. The portobello mushroom anchors the sandwich beautifully.
Lemon Thyme Crisps
Fresh ginger brightens the lemon-thyme flavor in these rich, crisp "biscuits." This recipe came to us from Anne Marie Lasher, an old friend and colleague from our White Dog Cafe days. Along with Stephen Wood, Anne Marie now owns Picnic, a terrific take-out cafe in West Philadelphia.
