What’s Eating Your Phone?

phoneby Steven Doyle

Each week we ask the question, “What’s Eating Your Phone”? This is where we all can join in on the foodie fun and send in your latest dining photo that has you all jazzed. These are not necessarily limited to dining out, it can be from that last dinner party. And don’t think we discriminate against libations. Send in your favorite cocktail photo, too.

To be included in a future edition of What’s Eating Your Phone, send those photos to me at steven@cravedfw.com. A brief description and location would be super helpful. Here are this week’s selections:    Continue reading

Village Baking Company Opening On Lower Greenville Avenue

vil1by Steven Doyle

The rumors that have been flying around about Village Baking Company opening a second retail store on Greenville Avenue are true. Today it was announced that the beautiful bakery owned by Clint Cooper will take over the space at 1921 Greenville, which is just a nod on the same side of the street as Trader Joes. That location was formerly occupied by Pipedream, a tobacco and vape shop.

Look for some of the loveliest baked goods, including Cooper’s specialty Pain au Levain and the flakiest croissant in Dallas. Clint Cooper has been baking his breads using only natural and organic ingredients such as unbleached flour, ground wheat, whole grains, filtered water, and sea salt – and absolutely no chemicals or preservatives. All of Village Baking’s Artisan breads are baked in small batches on hearth deck ovens giving our bread the distinctive goodness and golden crust that is its signature.    Continue reading

Little D Farmers Market in Trinity Groves

20140511_141808by Steven Doyle

Spring is in full swing and that means it is time for all the beautiful farmer’s markets to begin showing their wares. There are many to choose from across our city’s landscape, and the newest addition brings us to Trinity Groves. What better reason to make the Margaret Hunt-Hill Bridge crossing than to check out all the many restaurants, and on the first, second, and third Sundays between 10am and 3pm, dozens of pop up tents with a bounty of fresh produce and local goods produced by your neighbors.

We checked out the market this past Sunday to find many interesting vendors set up in front of the main building in Trinity Groves, just past the line of restaurant patios. Here you can sample great baked goods from Village Baking Company, or grab a shot of java from Noble Coyote Roasters.   Continue reading

Village Baking Company Offering Galette des Rois

Village Baking Company is making their own special version of the King Cake. This will not resemble the Gulf Coast cake that is a  ring of twisted brioche topped with purple, green, and gold colored icing. Instead the Village cake is the more traditional and less garish Galette des Rois.    Continue reading

We have extolled the virtues Village Baking Company and their beautiful pains au levain, kouign-amann, and delicately sinful pain au chocolat. Recently we discussed the rather elusive house-made butter and jams. We love what Clint Cooper and his crew have been producing, and finally after a restful excursion in France, the Dallas baker announces the arrival of his mobile baking truck.      Continue reading

Q&A With Clint Cooper From Village Baking Company

by Steven Doyle

I had a chance to stop in to see Clint Cooper at the new Village Baking Company storefront and was fascinated by his excellent selection of breads and offerings. The very tiny shop is packed ear-to-ear with unusual breads that you might not normally find in the Dallas area. They are only open a few days a week, so if you decide to go, do so early as the shelves are wiped clean rather quickly.

The afternoon I dropped by, which was a Saturday, a woman popped in and demanded a bag of croissant. They had just sold the last croissant and she was none too happy, in fact I believe she said just that. The production of croissant, and other breads are increased each week to meet the demand, but the little shop that has been selling mostly retail and farmers markets is being hit with an ever increasing demand. And for good reason.  Continue reading
