Happy Father's Day!

"Dad, I have so many fond memories of times shared together: Backyard kickball, school projects, the living room light being on early in the mornings as you spent time reading and journaling, you painting late into the night and us waking up to a beautiful piece of art, stories of your childhood on long road trips, dreaming into owning a piece of land and your courage to make it happen.

Dad, you have taught me so much. You taught me to listen to the voice of the Lord in everything, to open my eyes to look beyond what something looks like now into what it could be, to have the work ethic to turn vision into reality. 

The day that we decided to buy the Mill 133 property, you and Mom came out to see it.  You told me to look into the blue sky, and you asked me what I saw. I said plainly,“I see a beautiful blue sky, but I also know there are stars, the moon, the sun and planets out there.” With a twinkle in your eye, you said, “Exactly!”  
Thank you, Dad, for teaching me the most important thing on earth: to listen to my Heavenly Father. By listening, God has continually given me direction to see beyond what my natural eyes can see, to be a wife and mom, to serve and love others well and to live a whole life. I love you, Dad."

-Dustie Gregson, Owner & Founder


“Whether you turn to the right or the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you saying, 'This is the way, walk in it'" (Isaiah 30:21).

Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there!

  Thank you to everyone who came to our SWING DANCE Night this past Friday at The Table! What a fun night! Our gratitude especially goes out to the amazing Allie Sampson and ALL the members of The Piedmont Swing Dance Society who helped teach. Let's all do it again sometime!

STAFF FEATURES: 

We have the best staff in the world at The Table, and this month we have some hellos and goodbyes that are due. 

Kateland & Lorene // Manager

As the Table's Manager of almost 3 years, Kateland, leaves us next month to start her beautiful journey into motherhood (she is having a baby boy!), our New Manager Lorene will be stepping into her shoes. Originally from Tennessee, Lorene and her husband, Jim, moved around a bit before landing in Asheboro 2 years ago. In her almost 2 years working at The Table she has been a food runner, shift manager and lots of other things. She has 3 adult children and 4 grandchildren. 

Lorene shares, "My favorite thing about The Table is the people. I love working with Dustie and so many other talented, kind people. I'm thankful for the opportunity for growth; I can't wait to come alongside Dustie and help her in overseeing exciting new projects ahead."

Say a fond farewell to Kateland this summer and a friendly hello to Lorene the next time you see them! 
 

Breahna // Front Counter

 
 

Breahna was a junior in high school when she started working at The Table 3 years ago. "I was living in the Asheboro Mill Lofts next door and was walking my dog down the street when Dustie stopped me and offered me a job. I was so happy, and I can't believe how different my life would've been if I hadn't said yes!"

She is leaving the Table this month and going on new life adventures with Youth with a Mission (YWAM) in Kona, Hawaii. Make sure to say, "Adieu!"


MARKET: Eat This Jam

Hamburger_Condiment_Trio_grande.JPG

The Table's Market is featuring delicious jams this month from Eat This, an incredible, family-owned company based in Pennsylvania. Their focus is on all-natural, sustainable, locally-produced jams, marmalades and a few other things. Everything is made from scratch with no artificial ingredients or preservatives. Their ever-evolving product selections are dependent upon the variety and abundance of seasonal, all-natural, no-spray and organic harvests.

Their jams pair really nicely with our local Goat Lady dairy cheeses and a French Baguette. Eat This Peach Habanero Jam has a great kick and is especially impressive for a dinner party.

Also, back by popular demand our our Ladies-fit Table t-shirts!
Explore our Market for some truly unique items for the kitchen and home. Our shelves are always re-stocked with great new things.

Barista's Pick: Sweet Valley High II & Kabeywa

Saying our baristas are passionate about quality coffee is an understatement. This month they are featuring two stunning coffee roasts from Counter Culture (Durham, NC). Take a bag home with you today while they're fresh!

"This is the second iteration of the Sweet Valley High blend—once again pairing coffees from the Haru and Idido Cooperatives in Yirgacheffe, Ethiopia. Just a few miles apart on either side of a small valley, their coffees can exhibit very distinctive flavor profiles. Haru brings crisp florals, tea-like notes, and a mild citrus flavor to this great blend. Idido brings a melony fruit character with brighter citrus notes, creating a juicy sweetness. This sunny combination is the embodiment of summer." 

"Grown on the northwestern slopes of Mt. Elgon in Uganda, this natural sundried coffee is the result of trial experiments and our collaboration with our partners at the Chema washing station. With flavors of dried berry, grape, and chocolate, this special-preparation lot is sourced and named from the Kabeywa community."

HAVE YOU HEARD THE NEWS?
The Square on Church

"Once [Jerry Neal and Dustie Gregson] began brainstorming, they realized Neal’s purchase opened up the scope of The Mill 133 project to more than just saving and renovating one building. 'If you look at the overview, it does create a square if you tie-in the smokestack and the mill,' Dustie said of the overall campus that also includes Neal’s building and The Table. 'So we’re going to be referencing the area going forward as The Square on Church.' In addition to the properties, The Square on Church will include landscaped pedestrian-centered areas for the community to enjoy...

Within a couple of years, the newly created pedestrian areas will tie into The Mill 133, which will be a mixed-use facility to include retail, restaurants and, if Gregson is able to realize her full vision, an inn. “We wanted it to be a space in which the community as a whole could come and create revenue; a destination for the city; employment,” Gregson said.

“There are so many attractive things in the city, and the city’s growing,” Neal said. “I think [Asheboro] has the attitude of wanting to be a destination. With the bypass around town, it’s going to be easier to get here. We need a core-center, where we can have a variety of things that would make people want to come.” Neal and Gregson envision that core as The Square on Church."

May at the Table

____ ISSUE  No. 22 ____

Happy Mother's Day!

"When my mom was growing up, she said she would NEVER marry a preacher and NEVER live on a farm.  Almost 51 years ago, she married a rock n' roll musician and had me. Our family grew to four, and suddenly our lives took a dramatic turn when my dad miraculously met the Lord. Then years down the road, my parents purchased 52 acres of Sophia land that has become a Farm that is near and dear to many hearts. So, of course, the irony is that Mom did end up married to a preacher, and she lives on a farm. 

NEVER say NEVER.

Mom is one of those women that will one day have a wild book written about her life and escapades. She is one of the most selfless people I've ever met.  If you've been a guest at her table at home, then you know you felt like royalty.  And let me tell you, my dad has brought home some characters over the past years; but it didn't matter to her. She taught me how to serve others with hospitality and a genuine heart.

She is an encourager and listener. I remember all the times (and still do) that I've sat in her kitchen just needing to just talk; she always stopped whatever she was doing and made me feel like I was the only one that mattered. She has spoken truth when needed, encouraged my heart and loved me unconditionally. She has always been a safe place to share my dreams, and she makes me feel I can accomplish anything.

The other day I watch my mom as she lovingly planted and watered her Spring flowers in the garden. I was reminded of all the times she has prepared good soil in people's hearts for seeds of hope and possibility to be planted, fertilized, watered and grown into bloom. She always gives people the proper amount of space to grow. This is my mom. What a vision of God's love." 

-Dustie Gregson, Owner & Founder

Where would be be without our mothers? Bring your well-deserving mom out for a date at The Table this month, and celebrate the wonderful woman she is. Or for out-of-town moms, we always have Table gift cards available!

MARKET:
Mother's Day Gifts

Need a special gift for your mom/grandma/wife (well, let's be honest, any woman) this month?

Check out our Market for some truly unique items for the kitchen and home. Our shelves are full to the brim of beautiful plates, cups, linens placemats, teas and serving utensils.

We are stocked with incredible body butters/scrubs from Waxing KaraKara’s Story shows how her passion for working with beeswax-infused art caused her to start her own hives. Soon after she began beekeeping, she started sharing her honey products with friends and family who loved them, too. That was the beginning of Waxing Kara. In almost no time, a small but committed team turned a small beekeeping operation into a full-fledged company. Their products are out of this world!

Also, maybe you've seen our lovely Apolis Market Totes.  Apolis is an incredible lifestyle brand founded in 2004 by brothers Raan and Shea Parton; thier simple idea was that business can create social change. Their travels abroad immersed them in personal stories of struggle and survival and inspired them to create a business model that bridges commerce and economic development. Along with their commitment to global advocacy, they also understand the importance of sourcing and manufacturing locally. Whether it means partnering with manufacturers in Uganda, Peru, Bangladesh, or even Los Angeles, the Partons have used their model of “advocacy through industry” to empower people to determine their own future. 

Purchasing one of these totes helps provide Bangladesh women jobs by connecting social advocacy to industry. Click here to learn more about the story behind our Apolis Market Tote Bags and to support the cause. 


Barista's Pick: Sweet Baby Brown

This month our Baristas are featuring our signature drink, the SWEET BABY BROWN.

Easter bunny.jpg

Happy Easter!

"When he was at THE TABLE with them, he took bread, gave thanks, broke it and began to give it to them. Their eyes were opened and they recognized him…" -Luke 24:30-31

"I named The Table Farmhouse Bakery for this Easter passage in the Bible. The surprise gift that God always brings to the table of our hearts is a revelation of himself and his forgiveness, hope, intimacy, guidance, blessing and presence. From table to table--the home of the tax collector Zacchaeus, the wedding feast at Cana, a meal with pouting Pharisees, the Acts dinner huddle before he walked through the walls--God always comes to the table with a gift, a revelation of himself. 

FullSizeRender (2).jpg

When I was around six years old our family lived in an apartment complex, and the local community center organized a huge Easter Egg Hunt. The grand prize of a big bunny made entirely of chocolate was awarded to the child who found a special golden egg hidden amongst the other regular eggs. Guess who found the golden egg...ME! When I first glimpsed that shimmering golden egg, I reached for it with such excitement, hope and joy. I've been thinking about that memory a lot this week.

I walked into The Table yesterday and saw it filled with people enjoying their meals, the atmosphere enveloped in rich, sweet-sounding conversation. Then I walked outside behind The Table and entered into the old Cranford Industries mill. Standing inside that dilapidated, broken building I saw the beautiful potential in the Mill 133 restoration project we're beginning. That night, I sat around a table with several of my employees, and we told stories, laughed and cried. And even this morning before work, I received much needed encouragement from my husband, simple but powerful. When I allow God to open my eyes to see these everyday things, I find my golden egg again and again. I get the surprise gift of God's provision, faithfulness, goodness and unfailing love.

easter.jpg

I hope that this Easter, as you sit with family and friends over a meal, may your eyes be opened to his deep love, the gratitude of your grace-filled blessings and the nourishment that comes from just spending time with one another. In the busy world that we live in, may we all take the time to stop and set the table of our hearts with great expectation of God's presence.

Join us around our table the Saturday before Easter (April 15) for Brunch, and keep your eyes open for Golden Easter Eggs. Along with regular, colorful eggs with Table sweets inside, an additional 5 Golden Eggs will be hidden throughout the day outside around the lawn. Each Golden Egg will contain a fantastic Table "grand prize" that you can redeem at the counter. May the odds be ever in your favor, and Happy Easter, Everyone!"

-Dustie Gregson, Founder & Owner

Barista's Pick: Bonta from Counter Culture

coffee april.jpg

Our Baristas stock our retail with incredible, freshly roasted coffee beans that you wouldn't normally find in a store. This month we're featuring Bonta from Counter Culture.

"This coffee is the fruit of hard work done on about two dozen family farms in a small village of Bonta, in Papua New Guinea. Small lots from these farms—primarily consisting of Bourbon- and Typica-variety coffee—are separated and processed for us by our longtime partners, the Colbran family. The result is a savory coffee with notes of dried fruit and citrus."

If you want to try expanding your coffee palette, try a classic americano from our Espresso Counter. All of our coffee drinks are made using locally sourced Counter Culture coffee beans (Durham, NC).

From the brilliant, creative minds of
Jerry Neal & Dustie Gregson
comes a brand new
RE-BUILDING PROJECT.

“I had a dream to sow and rebuild. I believe it’s vital to create and produce things not just for yourself, but for others. When a tiny seed is planted and a tree slowly grows and bears good fruit, it is worth the sowing of the seed. There's something in my DNA that knows old things have a soul, and they inspire me with the story they want to tell. And so it is with Mill 133.

I used to drive down Church and Sunset Streets, and it was dead. People would never have dreamed of coming to downtown Asheboro at night in the past. It was a ghost town. 

Now, I see it's coming alive because of entrepreneurs who had a dream to develop businesses to help our community thrive. I took a risk with The Table Farmhouse Bakery in 2012. I thought, "Let's just try this for the people of our community." But now we have more amazing places like Four Saints Brewing Company and Bia's Gourmet Hardware. And people are coming out of the woodworks! I don't want to see the growth stop. 

C.C. Cranford and his family invested a lot of time, energy and money 100 years ago to build this big, beautiful mill. Asheboro Hosiery Mill & Cranford Furniture Company Complex changed Asheboro for the better--it brought jobs, industry, hope to this city. Why take it down? Why not sow and rebuild?”

- VSR, LLC (Vision to Sow & Rebuild)
Dustie Gregson, Founding Partner
 Jerry Neal, Founding Partner

Asheboro Hosiery Mills and Cranford Furniture Company Complex is a historic textile mill and furniture factory complex located in the heart of downtown Asheboro, NC. The complex includes three brick industrial buildings erected from 1917 through the 1940s and the Cranford Industries Office constructed in 1925. Also on the property are the contributing Cranford Industries Smokestack and a lumber shed (both built in the 1950s). The Mill was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2011.

Created by VSR, LLC, Mill 133 will be designed to be a retail complex offering a variety of products and services to the community. VSR's mission is to honor the rich legacy of historic buildings and re-purpose and re-design them to inspire a city to thrive.

The beginning of Raspberry Tea Cookies at The Table on Elm

In honor of Valentine's Day, The Table is offering some special treats in our retail Market, Espresso Counter coffee drinks, Bakery and Eatery for THIS WEEKEND (Feb. 10-11 and then Valentine's Day on this coming Tuesday)!


elm5.png

Barista's Pick:  Boka Valentine's Latte

IMG_6656.JPG

For all you lovebirds out there...

IMG_8447.JPG

From Counter Culture comes the seasonal sweet coffee bean called Boka. Around the village of Bonta in the Eastern Highlands of Papua New Guinea, there are many experienced farming families that produce what we consider to be the best coffees in the country. One farmer in particular epitomizes this area’s dedication to quality, and that farmer is Boka.

This one-of-a-kind coffee has a syrupy sweetness accentuated by a balanced, pear-like brightness. We taste notes of vanilla, stone fruit, and a delicate savoriness. Try Boka in your Valentine's Day cappuccino, latte or a simple pour-over. 

And if you haven't met them yet, come say HI at the Espresso Counter to our newest Baristas:  

Noah Elliot & Lauren Bullock!

"When I think of my staff at both Table locations I feel so overwhelmed, grateful and honored to have these individuals work for me. Their passion for, not only creating an amazing product, but taking orders, cleaning bathrooms, taking out the trash, washing dishes--all these duties!--while maintaining an incredible attitude of servanthood blows me away.

Each one has their own unique story and dreams, and I am blessed that they are serving the story of The Table at this point in their lives. I pray that while they work at The Table they will continue to grow and learn for whatever is ahead of them."

Barista's Pick: 

Cayenne-Cinnamon Drinking Chocolate

This drinking chocolate (from Black Mountain Chocolate in Winston-Salem, NC) is hot chocolate on a whole 'nother level. With a perfect balance of rich, sweet organic cocoa beans and a slight kick of spice, it's no wonder they won 4 out of 4 stars yet again this year at The International Chocolate Salon Awards. Check out their website here for more information, and come on down to the Table to take a box home for the family OR sip a cup--not gulp--of this decadent hot chocolate! (Only available in Asheboro).

Our Baristas also recommend Counter Culture Coffee's limited-release winter blend, Iridescent. They donate a portion of proceeds from every pound they sell to organizations doing important work in the communities where they buy coffee—to complete the cycle of good works, good cheer and great coffee. Iridescent offers an easy flavor profile with notes of dark chocolate and berry.

September at the Table

____ ISSUE  No. 14 ____

The Table on Elm is now OPEN in Greensboro!

 

Autumn is at our doorstep...



EATERY: 
HOUSEMADE BREAKFAST GRANOLA with FRUIT

"I remember when I was growing up my mom would make granola.  Coming home from school I could smell it baking.  The mix of coconut, pecans, oatmeal, cranberries, wild flower honey and pure maple syrup was the perfect snack or breakfast. I'm so glad we put this on The Table breakfast menu when we opened three years ago--it's become everyone's favorite! New seasonal toppings on our granola and porridge are coming soon!"  

-Dustie Gregson (Founder & Owner)


MARKET

Our Market is always being restocked with beautiful, handcrafted goods for your kitchen and home. This Fall we have brand new French Market Baskets available for all of you out there who are longing for a touch of Europe at home.

Just picture a weekend at the Farmer's Market--seasonal vegetables and fruit like squash and pumpkins are calling your name. While you could stuff your goodies unceremoniously into a backpack, you can't help but wish you had a beautiful straw market tote like the ones the Parisians always carry.  Here’s your chance to snag a French market basket, perfect for carting home bundles of fresh flowers and wedges of stinky cheese.  Also a great gift for Mom or a friend.

Visit your local farmers at The Asheboro Farmer's Market on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.  Check them out on Facebook and make sure to LIKE and FOLLOW them. 


BAKER'S PICK:
CRANBERRY WALNUT LOAF 

This bread is full of goodies and perfect for buttered toast or making a scrumptious sandwich. 



BARISTA'S PICK: CAPPUCCINO 

 

Cappuccinos are traditionally prepared with double espresso, hot milk and steamed milk foam.  We make all of our espresso drinks with fresh local milk from Homeland Creamery and delicious house made syrups. 



Our Baristas take a trip to
COUNTER CULTURE COFFEE

"Over our September closure week, a group of five of us baristas went to a Cupping Fundamentals Lab at Counter Culture Coffee's Head Quarters in Durham. It was incredible and expanded our knowledge for our work at the Table's Espresso Counter," says Barista Noah.

Housed in a nondescript warehouse in the Research Triangle area, Counter Culture Coffee holds classes, educational demonstrations and barista certification trainings for coffee professionals. While Counter Culture has similar training centers all over the country, their Durham location is unique because it is adjacent to their building that receives, roasts, packages and ships massive amounts of beans every day. 

Counter Culture has a tradition at all their training centers in which any barista can participate--once a week they hold a "coffee cupping." Reminiscent of a wine tasting, "cupping" is a term for evaluating (and passing judgement on) the tastes and aromas of various types of coffee. Indeed, anywhere you find a Counter Culture training center, you'll probably come across coffee aficionados sniffing, gurgling and bantering about obscure coffee terms. (https://www.get-offline.com/inspiration/cup-tour-counter-culture-on-a-friday)

Click here to find out more about Counter Culture.

"Cuppings are fascinating and full of new knowledge for us because the help us as  Table baristas develop our palates so we can learn to judge future coffees we encounter. It would amaze people to discover how many moving parts are involved in delivering the coffee that you see on the shelves of grocery stores or at a coffee shop."

The next time you're getting a cup of coffee at The Table, don't be shy to ask Justin or Noah about their time at Counter Culture!

NOW OPEN:

LOCAL PARTNERSHIPS

As you know, we love our local partnerships. This month The Table wants to recognize and thank Carolina Bloomers (Randleman, NC) for the fresh flowers that are brought in each week to brighten up our tables.  The flowers are absolutely gorgeous and bring smiles to our faces.

Also, Chelsea Manor Farm provides our chefs with fresh eggs from Siler City, NC.  Remember this delicious dish on our summer menu from last year? Baked egg using pasture roaming egg from Chelsea Manor, fresh spinach, tomato, herbs and goat cheese served with morning greens and fruit. Well, this year at The Table on Elm we are making incredible quiches daily (and tomato pie!) using these local, fresh eggs and fresh market tomato. The Table's chefs are committed to creating quality breakfast dishes with these fresh, local eggs, so come try them out today!

Visit these amazing local farmers at The Asheboro Farmer's Market on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.  Check them out on Facebook and make sure to LIKE and FOLLOW them. 

Grab n' go TABLEFARE is available at The Table on Elm daily!


BARISTA'S PICK: Hama Natural Sundried beans

A hello from our baristas:

"It's been a great summer with a lot of really amazing iced coffees and single origins from Counter Culture (Durham, NC). We're excited for the upcoming fall season and the great new coffees we will get to work with, especially the Hama Natural Sundried beans.

This year, the Hama cooperative set out to make the best natural-sundried coffee in their history. They selected coffee cherries from only the highest elevation Rigo community, then meticulously sorted the coffee using impressive techniques not common in Ethiopia. This work resulted in one of the cleanest naturals we have tasted from Ethiopia in recent memory—with crisp notes of raspberry and dried blueberry complemented by a silky body and soft citrus aftertaste (Counter Culture). Click here to read more on the Counter Culture website.

Check in with us at the espresso bar about the special flavors and notes our current roasted beans have. Don't hesitate if you have any coffee questions about brew methods (anything!) to feel free and ask us."

 Justin & Noah

BAKER'S PICK:

JALEPENO CHEDDAR LOAF

 On Saturdays The Table sells a special Jalapeño Cheddar Loaf. We use it in our Brunch Menu for our beef brisket or pulled pork sandwich.

"It is probably one of my favorites," admits Owner Dustie Gregson. "I have had several people tell me that they buy it on Saturdays and then cross the street to the Farmer's Market to pick up fresh, local tomatoes to make a killer BLT Sandwich. It is also amazing for a grilled cheese."

FORK to FARMER: Randolph County

"Discover a world of real people and authentic experiences off the beaten path and beyond the reach of travel guidebooks..."

title option3.jpg

People-First Tourism is an incredible initiative started by a group of professors at North Carolina State University, who are working on a program called FORK to FARMER to make it easier for tourists to connect with locals, offering an alternative to the do-nothing vacation.  The Table is honored to be featured in this month's initiative along with Asheboro's Back to Earth Farm.

"When The Table opened up it was a God-send for us, because that's exactly how we like to eat. We like real food made from scratch. We understand what goes into what they're doing there. We appreciate it, and we always want to support that," explains Tom Henslee, Owner of Back to Earth Farm.

Click here to check out an inspiring, 8-minute video featuring The Table's Founder & Owner Dustie Gregson and Executive Chef Deanna Clement speak on their amazing partnership with Back to Earth Farm's Owners Tom, Janice and Alice Henslee.

ESPRESSO

"We order a new batch of coffee beans every week so our customers are always getting the freshest beans, because freshness is of the utmost importance here at The Table." 
-Barista Noah

Counter Culture Coffee has recently found a place on the shelves of local, big chain grocery stores, but you can count on us to always have the freshest and most interesting offerings from our coffee-roasting friends in Durham. We love to stock single origin beans and limited release blends both for brewed coffee in-house and on the shelf for you to brew at home. Because we value freshness and excellent flavor, we won't sell roasted beans that're more than two weeks old. 

After a visit to the Farmer's Market, drop by for a perfect morning at The Table. Breakfast and fresh coffee are waiting for you! 


BARISTA'S PICK: ESPRESSO SPRITZ

"Whenever we have naturally bright, fruity coffees in the espresso grinder (quite often because we love them in all their uniqueness), we put double shots on ice with seltzer water and a tasteful dash of housemade orange syrup to create a refreshing, interesting way to enjoy cold coffee."

-Barista Noah

April at the table

____ ISSUE  No. 9 ____

The Table on Elm is now OPEN!

"Tucked away in a quaint, brick alleyway off of the hustle and bustle of Elm Street in downtown Greensboro, you will find the lovely, Paris-blue door of The Table on Elm."

Greensboro natives, your dreams have come true! There is a place for you at The Table on Elm.

No more will you need to drive down Highway 220 to Asheboro for a Sweet Baby Brown pick-me-up or a loaf of fresh-baked bread (unless you want to, of course), because The Table has officially opened their sister location in Greensboro.

Located at 227 S. Elm St. where the former Loaf Bakery used to be (and before that Simple Kneads), The Table on Elm is welcoming people through her doors. If you're wondering where to find this little alleyway, you can't miss it if you find the lovely, wrought-iron botanical gates on either side. The alleyway is nestled right between Mechelle's Boutique and Chakras Spa. Look for the sweet painted brick mural of the mother with a basket of linens balanced on her head walking hand-in-hand with her daughter through a hillside.

Anna Naphtali-Cookie.JPG

"I saw the empty space and immediately thought, 'This needs to be a bakery.' In opening The Table on Elm I wanted to honor the people who had the vision to pioneer this space to become a bakery fifteen years ago."

-Dustie Gregson, Owner & Founder

Owner and Founder of the original Table Farmhouse Bakery in Asheboro, Dustie Gregson, saw the need for more ovens. "We outgrew our baking area with our three years of booming business. Our whole kitchen in Asheboro was using just two ovens for all of our breads and pastries. Opening up this 'little sister' location is giving our Head Baker Jill and Baker Horst the opportunity to expand their craft and serve the community with greater capacity."

Fans of The Table's homey, country aesthetic will find the comforting, signature cotton and linen decor, the rustic busts of beloved farm animals and one-of-a-kind sheep art work (by Dustie's sister Sarah Atkinson) inspiring, as always.  

The MARKETPLACE is a stunning floor-to-ceiling display of housewares and other goodies, including ceramics, local honey, coffee mugs, chocolate bars, olive oil, woven baskets, hand soap, glass containers, mason jars, jugs, table cloths, Big Spoon peanut butter, plates, Lov teas and so much more.

Bread loaf variety and availability in The BAKERY vary daily: French Country Sourdough, Cinnamon Raison, Cranberry Walnut, Olive Oil & Sea Salt Sourdough, Cubano, etc. Day-old loaves are 50% off.

Sweet treats and desserts are abundant and also vary day-by-day. Try out the lemon tarts, lemon ricotta cheesecake, ricotta panna cotta, pear tart, amaretti torte, chocolate eclairs, biscotti, granola. The housemade ricotta is out-of-this-world!

The chalkboard Espresso menu has all of your favorite coffee treats: doppio, macchiato, cortado, cappacino, latte, americano, and of course the famous SWEET BABY BROWN. Says the smiling, friendly neighborhood Barista Justin, "We're so thankful to the Greensboro community's support in enthusiastically already welcoming us here and supporting us."

Stop by today, and share the news with all your friends and family. There is a place waiting for you at The Table on Elm!

TABLEFARE

"Need a quick bite to eat for lunch? Grab some TableFare, daily-made sandwiches, salads and quiches ready-to-go." 

If you're accustomed to the creative, high-quality menu items the original Table has to offer in Asheboro from Executive Chef Deanna, The Table on Elm is offering some of those amazing, familiar Eatery flavors in an on-the-go fashion. Although this location is not an in-house Eatery, the good news is that if you're looking for a quick bite to eat, The Table on Elm serves grab-&-go style sandwiches, salads and quiches. All Eatery items are made fresh daily in Asheboro the morning-of and brought to Greensboro as TableFare.

The Table on Elm is what we all love about The Table in Asheboro, but in a petite package. It offers a single bar table with high stool-seating inside with additional outdoor patio seating in the bright, greenery-filled alleyway. It is completely charming and relaxing; it's especially delightful on a lovely Spring day like today! 

If you have your heart set on a restaurant-style dining experience with friends and family, visit us at The Table in Asheboro during Eatery hours (breakfast, lunch and dinner) for plenty of seating indoors and outdoors. Please check out our complete Hours of Operation here .

March at the Table

____ ISSUE  No. 8 ____

Happy Easter!

BAKERY

"Spring has sprung! In honor of the Easter holiday our Head Baker Kristiana will be making handcrafted specialty Chocolate Rabbits and Peanut Butter-stuffed Eggs."

As is tradition each Easter, Head Baker Kristiana will again be serving up a very limited quantity of specialty Chocolate Rabbits and Eggs at The Table. These are made with Belgian dark chocolate and handcrafted one-by-one. 

The rabbits come in two different sizes: 5-inch tall solid rabbits and 9-inch tall hollow rabbits. The chocolate eggs are stuffed with Big Spoon Roasters delicious, creamy peanut butter. Skip the store-bought chocolate this year, and opt for these delectable treats. Get yours while they last (available only the week of Easter)! 


BAKER'S PICK:

Hot Cross Buns

Hot Cross Buns--soft, slightly sweet little cakes with a cross cut into the top--is an Easter staple, synonymous with Good Friday! 

There’s so much legend and lore behind Hot Cross Buns. English folklore said that Hot Cross Buns baked on Good Friday would never spoil throughout the following year. Some bakers believed that holding on to one Hot Cross Bun and hanging it in the kitchen meant that all yeast products in the coming year would rise successfully. Some sailors took Hot Cross Buns on their voyages to ensure their ships wouldn’t sink. And friends who gift one another with Hot Cross Buns

every year are said to remain friends for life. I’m not sure if that’s due to inherent powers in the buns…or just all the yummy goodness. The line is kind of blurry.

Come grab them while they're available and celebrate Easter with us (only the week of Easter)! Other great breads and loafs will be available for your family's Easter meal.


ESPRESSO

"Iced coffee weather is approaching!" 

"Spring is approaching, which means the perfect weather for lots of iced coffee! I'm super excited to be working with some incredible coffees in this warmer season from Counter Culture Coffee (Durham-based). I particularly love the Japanese iced brew method for iced coffee. it rocks! What's your favorite iced method?"
-Barista Justin

Japanese iced brew method

"Some coffee aficionados say cold-brewed coffee becomes oxidized when it sits in the fridge, unlike the Japanese method which freshly brews each cup. Basically, the method involves making a pour-over cup of coffee, replacing about half of the water with ice, which goes directly into the brewing vessel. The hot coffee drips over the ice as it brews, melting the ice and quickly cooling down the liquid. The iced coffee tastes fresh and balanced with just the right strength."
-THE KITCHN Blog

MARKET

"New charcoal gray Table T-shirts are in stock!"

Our Market is stocked with our signature charcoal gray t-shirts--you may have seen our stylish wait staff sporting the look. Rep our t-shirts around town this Spring! They are $20 and are available in sizes S - XL.

February at the Table

 

____ ISSUE  No. 7 ____

Happy Valentine's Day!

BAKERY

"Roses are red, violets are blue, stop by The Table and have a macaroon or two!"

Our Bakery is filling up the shelves to the brim with sweet treats for this weekend! The Table will feature a special chef's menu on the Friday and Saturday before Valentine's Day (February 12-13). Come by and visit with your Sweetheart or your Gal-entine!

For Valentine's Day The Table is featuring handmade chocolates. All of our chocolates are crafted in-house, only a few dozen at a time. We are excited to introduce Chocolate Almond Clusters, whole raw almonds covered in Belgian dark chocolate and finished with a sprinkle of French grey sea salt. For truffle lovers we are making small batches of Love Truffles. These simply elegant squares of rich ganache are encased in dark chocolate, labeled with "love" and edible rose gold luster. For the kid in all of us we have adorable Chocolate Lollipops. Get them while they last!


BAKER'S PICK:
White Chocolate Baguette

Stop.  Whatever you're doing.  Grab your car keys and drive to The Table to snag a decadent white chocolate baguette (for Saturday only). It's our delicious french baguette with morsels of molten white chocolate chips oozed into the bread's nooks and crannies. It is perfect for breakfast (french toast!), a little snack or any time in between. Once you try it, you're going to wonder how you ever lived without it. Buy two--one for you and one for your Valentine.


ESPRESSO

"For me, coffee is more than just a drink or a fast jolt of caffeine." -Barista Justin

"I love how complex coffee can be. As a Table Barista, learning about the intricacies and detailed work that goes into a single cup of coffee is a joy of mine. For me, coffee is more than just a drink or a fast jolt of caffeine. Having access to many origins of beans from all over the world (through Counter Culture) at The Table has broadened my appreciation of great coffee. Moreover, I've learned various brewing methods.

I particularly love the pour-over method. To make a pour-over, 30 grams of beans are ground (medium coarse grind), and water is boiled to 200 degrees using a goose-neck kettle (allows for optimal precision). I love the pour-over method because when the boiling water hits the freshly ground coffee it creates a bloom the releases the natural gas within the bean. It pulls out an aromatic experience highlighting the particular flavor notes of that bean.

I invite you to come in and talk with me about coffee. I'd love to help you find your perfect cup!"

MARKET

"Perfect little gifts that say I LOVE YOU..."

Our Market is stocked with cute gifts and treats for you and your Valentine. Come by and check out our wide selection of colorful Lov teas and beautiful linen aprons. We're also carrying a line of Savannah Bee body butter and hand lotions. Perfect little gifts that say I LOVE YOU are just a drive away!

Along with quality teas to purchase in The Market, Manager Kateland also shares about the variety available to you over the barista counter: "For all you tea-lovers out there, this cold February we are serving up our delicious Løv Teas. Their wide varieties of herbal blends make them enjoyable for all who want something cozy to drink this winter. You can't go wrong with any choice! Perfect for a nice morning brunch with some jam and toast with your husband or wife or delightful to serve to a friend with some of our famous shortbread cookies, our Løv Teas truly will stir up the LOVE for anyone this Valentine's Day."

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

BAKERY

"Our Maple Custard Pie is always made by hand, only three at a time!"
-Head Baker Kristiana

It's a brand new year. Start 2016 right by finding a place at The Table. This January, Head Baker Kristiana is whipping up some pies worthy of your sweet tooth.

"Our Maple Custard pie is always made by hand, only three at a time!"  We use US Grade A Dark Amber Maple syrup, fresh eggs, brown sugar and European style butter. This dreamy filling is lovingly poured into hand shaped, flaky crust. It is baked slow and low with some serious TLC. Come by and grab a slice today!


BAKER'S PICK: Multi-Grain Loaf

This loaf is chock-full of premium ingredients: King Arthur Sir Galahad Artisan bread flour, water, King Arthur 100% white whole wheat, multigrain mix (whole oat berries, millet, rye flakes, wheat flakes, four seeds flax, poppy, sesame and sunflower), milk, honey, sea salt and yeast.

For those that are curious, here's more details about the wonderful breads we enjoy from The Table.

king arthur bread flours.jpg

Baking success depends largely to great ingredients. The Table's bakers use King Arthur Flour. It is the oldest flour company founded in 1790 in Boston. All the flours are non-GMO, never bleached and bromated. They are made to the highest standards in the industry. Many of their products are milled locally at Lindley Mills in Graham, NC.

White wheat is a different type of wheat that has no major genes for bran color. An easy way to think of it is as a sort of albino wheat. The bran of white wheat is not only lighter in color, but it’s also milder in flavor, making whole white wheat more appealing to many people accustomed to the taste of refined flour. It is simply WHOLE flour – including the bran, germ and endosperm – made from WHITE wheat. Products made with white wheat require less added sweetener to attain the same level of perceived sweetness.

And there you have it folks! 


 

ESPRESSO

"There is a story behind the bean and a lot of complex flavors to back it up." 
-Barista Noah

Here's the low-down on coffee right from your friendly neighborhood barista, Noah:

"Ingredients matter here at The Table. Our syrups are housemade by highly-trained chefs who care a great deal about how they taste, not just their sweetness. Our milk is locally sourced by Homeland Creamery, who conducts a patient, low-temperature pasteurization process, so our customers are receiving all the possible health benefits and delicious flavor of top-notch creamery milk. However, the ingredient we are most proud of in our barista counter is, without question, the coffee beans from Counter Culture Coffee.

They source and roast coffee from all over the world, working closely with farmers to ensure they are always improving and providing the best beans possible. Because of the seasonality of coffee, we are always moving through different single origin beans. Working with single origin coffees helps to show how and why beans from different regions have different flavor profiles.

I'd like to encourage you to ask your barista at The Table, or at any coffee shop, what beans they have in the hopper or which beans they are serving. Consider tasting this coffee black, sans sugar and milk. Most likely there is a story behind the bean and a lot of complex flavors to back it up."

The Table is now serving our new Barista Series almond and soy milks along with Homeland Creamery for all milk-based espresso drinks.  Try the new Almond Milk Lattes. Almond milk complements the flavor of coffee and espresso delicately, but makes a big difference.  It withstands the high heat of foaming and delivers consistently smooth, velvety micro-foam--perfect for lattes! It's made with non-genetically modified almonds.

 

MARKET

"A staple for many since childhood, PB&J is a revered classic..."

Big Spoon Roasters makes handcrafted nut butters from scratch in Durham, NC. Uniquely fresh, delicious and nutritious, each small batch is made to order with the best possible ingredients sourced directly from local and like-minded producers. Take home a 10 oz. jar of their out-of-this-world MISSION ALMOND from our Market shelves or try it on The Table's classic PB&J Sandwich. Find out more about Big Spoon Roasters by visiting their website: www.bigspoonroasters.com

Also for the new year, we have a new Masala Chai Tea from Smith Tea Makers. Not only can we serve you up a delicious, hot cup of it here at The Table (with steamed milk--just ask for it!), but we are also carrying it in our Market.

Masala is the Hindi word for spice. To Indians, chai means sweetly spiced tea served with foamed milk. Smith Tea Makers combines second flush Assam teas with pungent ginger root, cassia, black pepper, cloves and cardamom to create a rich and spicy brew perfect for that warm pick-me-up out of the winter blues. 

 

EATERY

"Starting your day with a warm bowl of porridge leaves the belly fully happy and satisfied."

-Executive Chef Deanna

Porridge is not just for Little Miss Muffet, as in nursery rhymes of old. Starting your day with a warm bowl of porridge leaves the belly fully happy and satisfied. The Table's nutritious porridge is made of Steel Cut Oats and  a blend of  Khorasan wheat, buckwheat groats, Colusari™ Red Rice, 100% whole grain quinoa flakes and whole brown flax seed. It's served with fresh cut apples and pears, sprinkled with our housemade breakfast granola, wildflower honey, cinnamon and a side of almond milk. 

Macaroni and cheese is a classic comfort food. Expect some interesting, yet familiar, housemade varieties of this baked cheesy pasta from The Table's kitchen. Reuben Mac n' Cheese for example: certified angus beef and penne pasta in a Swiss cream sauce topped with Black Russian Rye bread crumbs, served with mixed greens dressed with Russian Vinaigrette. Yum!

December at the Table

____ ISSUE  No. 5 ____

It's the most wonderful time of the year...

BAKERY

"The Table's Yule Log (Buche de Noel) is made of pumpkin genoise (roulade), rolled up in a caramel buttercream, iced with chocolate ganache and garnished with meringue mushrooms."
-Pastry Chef Jill

 

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas at The Table! It's decked with boughs of holly and sparkly lights and decorations twinkling in the windows. Come and experience the magic!

What's more cozy and nostalgic of Christmastime than chestnuts roasting on the open fire and Jack Frost nipping at your nose? So, The Table celebrates with the time-honored Yule Log. The history of the Yule Log dates back to the early 1600's when families would gather at the end of December to welcome in the New Year and clear the air of last year's events. They would burn logs decorated with holly andpinecones keeping the ashes as good luck for the coming year.

The Buche de Noel is a log-shaped cake meant to evoke the Yule Log that once burned in European hearths throughout Christmastime.  It's traditionally made of layered or rolled genoise (Italian sponge cake), filled with mouse or buttercream and decorated with meringue mushrooms, forest creatures or holly leaves.

The Table's Pastry Chef, Jill, shares the delicious specifics of their Yule Log: " Our Buche de Noel is made of pumpkin genoise (roulade), rolled up in a caramel buttercream, iced with chocolate ganache and garnished with meringue mushrooms."
