Schadenfreude.


















A couple of days ago one of The Canary's rival bakeries, Titep Rouf, 'closed for renovation' through Labor Day. But the scuttlebutt is that the joint is kaput. Three bakers came looking for new jobs because they're sure that the renovation is a ruse. I've heard whispers of dissatisfaction from restaurant people about Titep Rouf, but I had no idea that whatever was going on over there was that bad.

And now apparently no one can get a decent scone anymore. My wholesale clients called me about making scones. Rasputina and I have decided to take on the City's Biscuit Deficit on our own. Right now. Just the two of us.

Anyone got a fantastic scone recipe out there? I'm not in love with any of the recipes that I've tried, though, the King Arthur Cookbook has a great section on scones that gives a lot of technique info.

Can anyone throw a girl a scone?

(R, I can't help but ponder our sanity...hmmm....we could be insane at this point and not even know it.)

Wow - this is fascinating! I seem to remember an early goal upon your arrival to Philly was to take them down, so score one for Oy Vey! If Philly is calling out for a good scone, I have faith you can provide it.
