Thankfully, the proprietors offered me a sample, or I might have missed this recent addition to the Wintertime Farmer’s Market. Couët Farm & Fromagerie makes cave-aged cheeses from raw milk in Dudley, Massachusetts. We purchased the Evelina—a rich raw sheep’s milk cheese with a delicious natural rind.

We’re continually looking for great bagels, so when we learned Rebelle’s Artisan Bagel would open a pop-up at Kitchen, we picked up half a dozen. The malt, onion and caraway smell filled the air on the ride home, as the bagels cooled from hot to warm. They definitely passed the Heisen-Bagel test. They’re working on planning a pop-up schedule for next month. We’ll be there.

August 2017 – They now have a brick & mortar location.

Knead Doughnuts

Providence is not lacking doughnut shops, but until recently, most were the fast food chain variety. PVDonuts arrived, and Knead Doughnuts (pictured above) opened in downtown Providence last month.

I will remain loyal to Allie’s Donuts, but 20 miles is a long way to drive for a doughnut. Knead Donuts also offers a variation on the theme. The raised doughnuts have a brioche-like texture with a crunchy shell, and the cake doughnuts are densely packed with flavor—sour cream and vanilla. Perhaps, the most surprising aspect is the beautiful space.
