Fresh yeast rolls … just in time for the holidays (or for lunch)!!

I’ll have these little bites of delicious nostalgia available for purchase at the Madonna School (Poplar Avenue in Germantown) sale tomorrow. They’ll be at the St. Louis Church sale on Saturday the 20th. They’re at Meg Menzies Style (inside La Maison) on Fridays while they last. And they’re always available by special order (three dozen minimum).

A proper Southern table NEEDS hot yeast rolls.

Mary Winger Bowman, and her husband, Pete Bowman, came up with the idea of the High Point Art Fair about the same time as the opening of the Shelby Farms Greenline. Using empty space across the street from their house, they invited neighbors to just show up, selling “anything handmade”, on a sunny Saturday morning. Advertising was simply half-a-dozen signs Mary had handwritten and placed along Highland and High Point Terrace … and it turned out to be a happy day. About fifteen neighbors staked out spaces, set up tents, and sold cookies, potholders, concrete yard art, preserves, pickles, and mustards, jewelry, and fine art – and a tradition was born. Mary and Pete set out an indoor picnic for the vendors to share; people using the Greenline stopped by, and – even for those who just came by to look – the High Point Art Fair days became dates many looked forward to each year.

Mary was an accomplished artist – she had shows at the Botanic Gardens, Memphis galleries, and had worked for a number of event production companies around town, as well as teaching art classes. Pete was a set designer, working for local theater companies, a craftsman, and a painter. The two collaborated on projects – which can still be seen as décor and props at area fundraisers. They were the best of friends, and complemented each other well.

Mary died in early 2020, and Carter Beard, a friend and neighbor, approached Pete about keeping the High Point Art Fair going as a memorial to her. Pete was in total agreement, gave Carter the rights and responsibility for continuing the Fair, and offered full support. Sadly, Pete died only a few weeks later, before plans for the revised Fair could be completed – and in the middle of a worldwide pandemic, local authorities would not permit a 2020 Fair to take place. Plans for continuing the Fair as a memorial to its two founders, however, continued to evolve.

We are happy to be able to be able to present, on October 2, 2021, the first annual Mary and Pete Bowman Memorial High Point Arts Fair, in its original location at the corner of Johnwood and High Point Terrace, in the middle of High Point and beside the Greenline. This year, we will have a number of new fine artists and artisans, as well as food trucks. We look forward to continuing to grow and evolve this event, which is a High Point tradition, in loving memory of the two wonderful folks who opened their hearts and their home to promote art – in many different forms – to the city of Memphis.

Good evening from snowy and cold Memphis! As I share this, we are going under a "boil water" warning -- which includes "don't do laundry" and "don't run your dishwasher" recommendations -- for the next several days.

The GOOD news is that I've been selected to participate in the Bon Appetit Magazine's "Your Favorite Chef" contest. This includes a little article in the magazine, and a nice cash prize -- which would go a LONG way towards helping make up for last year's business losses. My food in jars has continued to sell well, I am thankful to say -- I'd LOVE to be able to make folk across America aware of the goodies I love to put up for you all.

Please take a moment to click on this link (https://favchef.com/2021/carter-beard) and vote for me -- and, also, please share this request with your contacts list -- and ask your friends and family to vote for me, as well. There are a number of excellent culinary-school-trained and self-taught folks competing for this prize. Were I to win it, it would allow some AWESOME national exposure to my business. You all know how much you love Riverside 1844 Artisanal Foods' products -- it would be wonderful to let people across the country in our our little secret!

Thanks in advance for your support. Don't forget to vote -- again, here's the link! https://favchef.com/2021/carter-beard

**Edit Note:** Tomorrow is going to be GORGEOUS outside. Come see me in the greenhouse at Millstone -- I'll be surrounded by fall beauty!!!

Ladies and Gentlemen -- for the very first time this year, Riverside 1844 Artisanal Foods WILL be appearing in public -- this Saturday, at Millstone Nursery and Marketplace on Poplar in Germantown. Tricia Hunt, the nursery's owner, has been kind enough to allow some local makers and artisans to "show" on Saturdays this fall, and THIS Saturday, October 17, it's my day! Come check out the fall flowers, pumpkins, and other things for the yard ... you KNOW the stuff at Millstone is always gorgeous -- and while you're there, come get your craft mustards and preserves. I'll have sourdough bread, chocolate banana bread, and more -- and, as always, the PICKLES! I'll hope to see a bunch of you there!

Home made sourdough ROLLS! They're awesome ... and they're a limited edition this weekend. I've got two bags each of a dozen dinner-sized rolls, and one bag that are slightly-smaller, but still nice-sized -- there are sixteen in this bag. They're $10 per bag -- and worth every penny. I do have more starter, but after the first ones are gone, it will be Sunday before replacements are available. I'm also making a really nice orange tea bread -- slightly sweet, a lovely balance of orange, and amazing as dessert with sherry or coffee ... or whipped cream ... or all three! These loaves are $9 each; minimum two unless you buy a bag of rolls. And, I've got some nice ripe bananas in the house -- I'll do chocolate banana bread to order ($9, minimum two but mix and match with the others if you'd like.) Venmo (preferred), cards, cash -- and pickup / dropoff late Saturday afternoon. Call, text, PM to order.

I've been to three grocery stores ... each of which had different shortages. It's interesting. But I was able to put together a plan for tomorrow's baking. This weekend's goodies include Classic Sourdough Bread (limited -- I'll bake 8 loaves), Garlic and Herb Bread, and Sour Cream Banana Bread. Breads are $9 each, two-loaf minimum, mix and match. Late Saturday pickup / delivery. Call, text, or PM me, please, to order. Payment methods: Venmo, credit/debit, cash. Looking forward to hearing from you. Thanks!

Happy Friday! I've come up with an incredible new chocolate cookie to be used as the sides on ice cream (or gelato!) sandwiches.

They're crisp, deeply chocolate, and just-barely-sweet. They'd work beautifully with Vanilla Bean ice cream -- or any flavor of gelato!!

These are $9 per dozen -- two dozen minimum, or mix and match with a loaf of bread. Speaking of which, this weekend's bread selection (as you all might have noticed last weekend) is Cheesy Jalapeno. It's a fun little loaf -- I think you all will be pleased. Bread is $9 per loaf, minimum two loaves ... or mix and match with the cookies! I'll be planning to get it all done in time to do late afternoon meet-ups tomorrow.

Venmo preferred; cash, card, check all accepted.

OK -- this weekend, I'm thinking mostly savory. Of course, I'll have some sourdough bread, but I'm also offering a light, lovely Garlic and Herb Bread (it's amazing with soup, salad, or just as a snack!). I'm also working on a Cheesy Onion and Olive Bread -- even folks who don't like olives will like this one -- and no butter is required!

Breads are $9 per loaf, two-loaf minimum, and you can always mix and match. Let me know what you'd like as soon as you decide -- I'll only make 8 sourdough loaves this weekend. I can meet to deliver late Saturday or Sunday ... to make it fit into your schedule! AND ... I'll do fudge pies by request. They're $19 each ... and they're incredible -- dark, rich, and intensely chocolate!

Payment -- Venmo (preferred), credit/debit cards, cash -- it's all good.

Ladies and gentlemen -- for this weekend, I've had orders for sourdough, sweet potato, chocolate-banana, and zucchini breads. I've got a few extras of each flavor available. They're $9 each, mix and match until they run out, minimum two loaves per order. Private message, text, reply here -- it's all good. Venmo preferred, check, cash, or credit/debit cards all accepted. Who wants some?

I spent the weekend working on a few special orders ... including sourdough bread rounds. This bread is tangy, slices beautifully for toast (try it with my Chili Fig Preserve!!), and it's absolutely wonderful for sandwiches. Everyone who's tried this bread has had wonderful things to say about it. I have five 9-inch round loaves left ... they're $9 each. Who'd like one -- or two? PM, text, call .. Venmo (preferred), card, check ... or cash.

All right, friends and family. This weekend's Riverside baking selections are in: Lemon Chess Pie ($17), Chocolate Banana Bread, and my newest creation -- Sweet Potato Bread. The breads are $9 each -- minimum two -- and you can mix and match them if you'd like to.

PLEASE share this post with your friends!

The chocolate bread is rich, moist, and VERY chocolaty-- it's been a best seller for years. The sweet potato bread is slightly sweet and full of deep flavor and warm spices. The deep-dish pie is beautifully balanced, almost sinfully rich, with the bright flavor of lemon complementing the decadence Southerners all know well. Please let me know what sounds good -- I'll get you hooked up for your weekend! Saturday pickup / delivery mid-afternoon.

Payment terms -- Venmo preferred. Credit / debit cards accepted. Cash or check.

This weekend, I'll be offering choices! I'm going to bake Sour Cream Banana Bread, Apple Rum Raisin Bread, and Deep Dish Fudge Pies.

The breads are $9 per loaf, two loaf minimum. Two of a kind or mix and match, if you'd rather.

The fudge pies are $19 each -- they're VERY rich, INSANELY good, and even better warm with a little ice cream!

I can do porch drop-off if we're close, or meet you in front of the Williams-Sonoma store if we're not. Venmo preferred, CashApp or credit/debit cards accepted also.

Who'd like what? Don't forget your friends who need a little Riverside love!

Hi, Carter! I am missing your seasoned crackers - the ones we made for the high school that day I helped in your kitchen. Also, what would be the best sweet/tart jam that you have that would go well with Turkey. I need to stock up on your jams and jellies! MISS YOU!
Your products look simply amazing! Wish I were close enough to get some.
