John Gutekanst, owner of Avalanche Pizza, displays his passion for local food, his creativity in combing ingredients and his overwhelmingly obvious baking talents at the Athens, OH farmer's market!
You'll have to forgive me, as I don't recall the exact names of all the breads and pastries. This was the first time in my life that I was awe-struck by the beauty of baked breads.
The Berry Me in Bacon!
Out of the copious amounts of things we sampled, this was by far, my favorite!
A delicious dough with just the right amount of chew, similar to a perfect pizza crust, enveloping a mound of white cheddar cheese with sweet, plump blueberries and generously sliced slabs of beautiful bacon woven throughout!
We ate so much and it was all absolutely the most impressive and #delicious baked good experience I've ever had!
Thank you John, for sharing all of this with us!! The sun setting and reflecting over Dow Lake at Strouds Run State Park.
Strouds Run State Park contains 2,606 acres of uninterrupted hardwood, the 161-acre Dow Lake, a 900-foot sand beach, 6 #hiking trails, 15 mountain biking/hiking trails and 10 bridle/hiking trails.

This pastry is wrapped around a poached pear and stuffed with even more more pears and a sweetened peanut butter like filling!

On the left is a puff pastry filled with a almond tahini pudding (that was out of this world!) and topped with plums, raspberries, blackberries and a blackberry jam.

These are a sea salt and herb fougasse, a french flat-bread shaped like a leaf. John said these are one of the more popular items.
