Side Dishes: Prestigious press for a Vermont restaurant

Last summer, Julianne Jones was using Kickstarter.com to raise $12,000 to open a bakery. A little more than a year later, her business, Vergennes Laundry, is featured in Food & Wine magazine.

Writer Kristin Donnelly seems tickled by the fact that Jones is the primary baker, not her husband, Frenchman Didier Murat — who owns his own business, Vadeboncoeur Nougat. In fact, Donnelly notes, Jones never trained in France at all; she studied with bread baker Gérard Rubaud in Westford. Donnelly’s picks among Vergennes Laundry’s tastiest treats include mini Bundt cakes called cannelés; hazelnut-fig biscotti; and a savory zucchini, eggplant and tomato tart. For foodies who can’t reach Vergennes, recipes for the last two dishes — and two others — are included in the issue.

  • I tried it once ... and never went back.
  • Now and then, when I'm hung over or craving sodium.
