Xitrous

Xitrous is a multifaceted school of good food, fun, learning, and so much more. Xitrous is about passion.

Passion for flavor, passion for learning, passion for taste. Spring 2016 will be the launch of this passionate adventure for us. We will be selling delicious, decadent, baked goods at several local Farmers' Markets in the Loudoun County area. We use only seasonal, local, organic fruits, vegetables, and meat. We grind our own spices, process our fruits and vegetables and prepare our food with passion and love. We want to share our passion for real food for real people.

Operating as usual

January is almost gone. February is at the end of this week.
February is the month of celebrations.
This Saturday, enjoy the first treat of the month - New York Style Crumb Cake.
Being from NJ, we have standards of the thickness of the streusel topping. It must be at least an inch thick. It must be melt-in-your-mouth buttery, and it must top a cake worthy of that crumb!!!!
So, let the February Fun begin this Saturday, February 4. Store is open till Friday, February 3rd at 4PM. Order yours before they're sold out!
Order your 8" tray of incredible crumb cake to have this weekend.

See what else is in store for February.

Xitrous is offering Sourdough Sandwich Bread this coming Saturday, January 28.

Sourdough Sandwich Bread is tender, fragrant, and perfect for slicing. It is perfect for making a sandwich, having a slice of buttered toast, or even making your own croutons. I love the bread in so many ways. It is also a fermented bread. The fermentation makes this bread easier to digest, has lots of great bacterias that are good for our gut.

So, here's to more cold weather options for savory bread and treats.

Items are on sale today, Sunday, January 22 through Friday, January 27, 4PM. Pickup of your bread is on Saturday, January 28th, from 10am till noon. Delivery is available for a small fee on Saturday, January 28 in the afternoon.

Do you love bread? Are you looking to enjoy bread, but you have been having digestive sensitivities to regular wheat bread? I have discovered the delicious low-gluten flour, Einkorn. This bread is for EVERYONE who loves bread.*

Einkorn flour make a spectacular loaf of bread. The taste is delicious. It has a soft, but firm texture. It slices beautifully so you can have toast, a sandwich, or just bread and butter.

The breadcrumbs that I make are directly from the sourdough loaves that I toast and grind. They have a subtle nutty flavor with the hint of sourdough.
Want to make a meatloaf, meatballs, toasted breadcrumbs over a salad? Einkorn breadcrumbs are the answer.

Want to eat pizza with any topping of your choice? Use a pre-baked Einkorn Sourdough Pizza crust. The flavor is enhanced by the Einkorn Sourdough. Every pizza is already packed with flavor.

I could wax on and on about this grain. I love it. I'm using it to make French Toast, Egg in a bread, Sandwiches, in Italian Meatballs, Croutons, and everything that I use Sourdough Bread for. The breads, pizza crusts, and breadcrumbs are made exclusively with raw, organic ingredients.

Want to know the best part of using this grain for me? I have been baking with it for clients who have sensitivities and allergies to wheat and gluten. They are VERY HAPPY and able to enjoy bread again!!

Sale begins today, Tuesday, April 26 and closes Friday, April 29th at 4PM.
Pickup of these products is Saturday, April 30th between 10am and noon.
