Introducing Oatcakes at Sunday's Clover Market
|Tuesday, 01 May 2012 11:11|
Oatcakes have come a long way since they first kept Scottish soldiers' tummies from rumbling along the warpath. They've become especially popular on the West Coast, where the part-muffin, part-granola bar has become a coffeehouse staple in places like San Francisco, sustaining artists, students and foodies alike.
Our trusty kitchen chief Dianne has developed JPM's own version, which includes walnuts, flax seeds and coconut oil, is a little salty and a little sweet, and should accompany our Carrot-Ginger Soup nicely on Sunday at the Clover Market in Ardmore. We're excited to be back at this upscale vintage outdoor market, where you can find 100 vendors selling antiques and collectibles, vintage jewelry and clothing, handmade items, original art and artisan crafts from throughout the Main Line, Greater Philadelphia and beyond.
It's the perfect venue to debut our oatcakes. But the oats don't stop there. We'll also be serving up our always popular Chocolate Oat Bars, which provide a generous layer of ganache in every bite.
We'll also be serving Hummus and Crudites, Blondies and Strawberry-Lemonade Spritzer. We'll be among many great local food vendors setting up shop indoors in the Backe Building on the east corner of the Schauffele Plaza lot.
