As you can see from his schedule, John is a guy who loves talking about the wonders of rye bread so much that he eagerly races in one day from White Plains to Paramus to hand out samples of our 100 percent sour dough rye .
In the picture above John is making his famous “Baltic Crostini,” served at some of New York’s swankest parties, including the Tribeca Film Festival. This delicious tidbit is made with a thin slice of Baltic rye, honey mustard, avocado, radish and sea salt. He makes this hors d’eourve by spreading honey mustard on the bread; topping that with mashed avocado; and garnishing with thin slices of crisp radish on which sea salt is sprinkled.
The rumor is true. John does hand out samples of this creation at his bread demos. You won’t believe how delicious it is, until you try it.
