Drums & Crumbs Biscuits & Gravy

Biscuits & Gravy

This month, we are introducing one of our favorite southern classics: Biscuits & Gravy! A flaky buttermilk biscuit topped with our own pork sausage gravy… it’s a perfect snack or entree any time of day. We will be serving Biscuits & Gravy at the pop-up cafe at the Renaissance Marin every Thursday from 9am to 2:30pm. Maybe we’ll bring it to some of our other events this month, so follow us on Facebook to find out!

San Rafael Twilight Criterium

2014 San Rafael Twilight Criterium

Drums & Crumbs had a front row view to the 2014 San Rafael Twilight Criterium this past weekend. We set up our tent next to Strike Brewing Co. and sold our favorite Fried Chicken Sandwich with sides of Baked Mac & Cheese and Fresh Mixed Greens. To finish it off, we had our Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie, which was so popular, we’ve started selling it at the Tuesday night farmer’s market as well.

In addition to our tent, we also had the honor of catering the VIP “Twilight Club.” Those guest were treated to a choice of Arthur’s Fried Chicken with Baked Mac & Cheese, Fresh Mixed Greens and Buttermilk Biscuits or a box of Baked Mac & Cheese, Spicy Black Eyed Peas, Fresh Mixed Greens and a gluten-free Corn Muffin.

We couldn’t have had a more exciting street debut in San Rafael. We are glad we could introduce Drums & Crumbs to so many new people.

Truck Update: It’s Alive!

Rachel Hundley and the Drums & Crumbs Food Truck

Over the holiday weekend, Rachel headed down to Southern California to check out the progress on our food truck in person. We knew the truck had been purchased and construction had begun, but, even after repeated requests, our builder never sent photos of the truck or its progress, so we wanted to see it for ourselves.

What a beauty!

Through the back door

As you can see, the electrical wiring and counters are installed. This week, it will hopefully be inspected by the Department of Housing and have a smog inspection. After that, it’ll take a couple of weeks to install the appliances and the plumbing. After the final touches inside, they will send it out to get wrapped in the beautiful design created for us by Design Womb. Theoretically, we could have it mid-August… but we won’t start planning our grand opening until it is actually on its way.

Rachel decided to make a weekend out of the trip, driving Highway 1 through Big Sur, spending two nights in Santa Barbara, and passing through Santa Cruz on her way home.

Businesses represented included finance institutions, retail stores, community organizations and, of course, Drums & Crumbs. Congratulations to Rachel on the recognition for her contributions as an entrepreneur!

Drums & Crumbs At The Tuesday Night Farmer’s Market In Sonoma

The Drums & Crumbs Team

The Drums & Crumbs Farmer’s Market Team

Drums & Crumbs is excited to be a part of the Valley of the Moon Certified Farmer’s Market held every Tuesday evening through the summer. We don’t have our food truck yet (soon!), so we have a stall set up on the west side of the horseshoe next to Napa Street. Although the market officially starts at 5:30pm, our dinner service starts at 5:45pm.

Our first week at the market was a little hectic for us. The Sonoma community and beyond was out in full force, and it was our first time selling at a farmer’s market. Our menu for the first night was Arthur’s Fried Chicken, Baked Mac & Cheese, Carolina Coleslaw and Buttermilk Biscuits. The Drums & Crumbs team — Arthur, Rachel, Tess and Wes — held it together that night, and we were amazed at how fast we sold out of food! It was a true privilege meeting so many new faces and receiving such positive feedback about the food.

The next week we came back with even MORE fried chicken, as well as our Slightly Sweet Iced Tea and Rachel’s Fresh Strawberry Cobbler. The weather couldn’t have been more perfect, and again the market was packed! We were again overwhelmed by the number of people who had heard about Drums & Crumbs and wanted to try our food.

If you stopped by the booth and were unable to try our fried chicken, we are working hard to figure out a way to have more available in light of the strict time constraints the market has for set up. Once the truck arrives, we’ll be able to keep up with the overwhelming demand for our food.

We are honored that so many people would hang out with us and wait for the final batches of chicken to come out of the fryer. We love getting to know the people in our Sonoma community, as well as those of you who drive in from out of town! We’ll be back next week (and every week until September) with more southern treats for you to try.

If you want to have some Drums & Crumbs fried chicken for dinner, come early! Dinner service begins at 5:45pm.

SUMMER SPECIAL: Tess’s Strawberry Shortcake

Drums & Crumbs Tess's Strawberry Shortcake

When we told Tess, who was recently promoted to Bakery Manager, that she could add a namesake to our menu, she immediately thought of strawberry shortcake. Tess wanted to show people what a true shortcake is all about. It is flaky and buttery and just a tad sweet. And it makes the perfect base to showcase our local and organic strawberries. Tess also added one distinct touch: she serves it with a homemade bourbon whipped cream.

We’ll be selling it at the Tuesday night market in Sonoma and the Wednesday pop-up cafe in San Rafael during peak spring strawberry season, so come by and try it!
