Diestel Turkey Burgers have arrived
The sad news is that our buffalo burger has left our menu due to increased popularity of buffalo (weird reason, huh? see why below). The good news is that we are now getting some delicious ground turkey from Diestel Ranch seasoned with organic sage, sauteed onions and garlic. This is now available on any of our popular burger combination’s.
This change represents one of the struggles which we are constantly looking at, that is to provide reasonably priced sustainable foods. The popularity of buffalo in supermarkets, which fetches better prices for the supplier than restaurants, increased our price for buffalo to such an extent that we could no longer afford to sell it at our goal of sustainable products for under $10 (our regular menu goal, though some daily specials are higher). I don’t blame the supplier and am glad that buffalo is getting so popular, but the best thing is that it led us to another delicious alternative.
For all those buffalo (OK, it’s really North American bison) fans it is still a great meat to eat, environmentally as well as for health concerns! But we, at The Bread Workshop, are trying to focus on sustainability in the wallet as well as all other forms of sustainability.
