Dosa Kitchen Transitions

Thanks to everyone who has come out to eat at Dosa Kitchen this season! 

Our last day parked at Grafton Cheese Village will be this Saturday, 10/24.

Then we'll be taking Dosa Kitchen indoors to the Brattleboro Winter Farmers' Market, Saturdays from 10-2. Stop by Friday or Saturday before we pack up the truck, where we'll be making our sunshine squash masala and green tomato chutney. And pick up a Dosa Dollar to use at the winter farmers' market. We'll be open 10-2 both Friday and Saturday.

SV GOOD EATS Magazine Published By Reformer's Parent Group, Media NewsGroup

Did anyone else pick up the GOOD EATS little mag that the Reformer's parent group put out?  

Nice little article on local foodscene stuff with a decent writeup about bakeries by Cicely Eastman.  Some tasty sounding recipes on other pages I intend to try are on other pages.

However, a small quibble - they used a European bakery photo to illustrate the local bakeries on page 4.  Notice the signs in front of the baked goods have prices listed in Euros.

Old Carrot Cake Recipe Sought

I am looking for a carrot cake recipe that makes the old style cake -- dark (a warm brown color), dense, moist cake,  (high carrot content, I think) and definitely NO PINEAPPLE OR COCONUT.  Raisins and walnuts definitely OKAY.  While the newer recipes are more like regular cake, they are not the carrot cakes from the 70's that I remember and love (and are no match, either, as far as I'm concerned).  .Does anyone know a local bakery who does or would make one with these requirements?  This is for a 60th birthday, and the birthday girl really wants to relive the carrot cake experience.

Thanks for any leads or recipes.
