  • From Sourdough to Charcuterie: Artisanal Delights of Local Entrepreneurs

    19 MAR 2024 · Watch on Youtube: https://youtu.be/rAEZLtemB70 In this mouthwatering episode of The Bridge, host Adam Robison sits down with two inspiring female entrepreneurs who are making waves in the Northwest Arkansas food scene. Jasmine Rivera, owner of Swavory Snacks, and Ashley Dooley, the creative force behind Dooley's Dough, share their passion for crafting delectable treats that nourish both body and soul. Jasmine Rivera's journey with Swavory Snacks began during the COVID-19 pandemic, when she decided to turn her lifelong passion for food into a thriving business. The name "Swavory" is a clever combination of "sweet" and "savory," reflecting the diverse range of snacks Jasmine creates. From artisanal charcuterie boards to her signature "Flavor Pop" cornmeal-based snacks, Swavory Snacks offers something for every palate. One of Swavory Snacks' most popular offerings is the Cajun White Cheddar Flavor Pop, a zesty and addictive treat that has become a fan favorite. Jasmine's commitment to creating snacks that are not only delicious but also accessible to all is evident in her thoughtful approach to ingredients. Her Flavor Pop snacks are perfect for those with dental sensitivities or young children, as they don't contain any hard kernels like traditional popcorn. As Jasmine's business continues to grow, she has exciting news to share. Starting in May, Swavory Snacks will be the exclusive charcuterie supplier for Unwind, a new winery located in Chaffee Crossing. Visitors to Unwind will be able to enjoy a relaxing atmosphere, sample a variety of local wines and beers, and indulge in Jasmine's mouthwatering charcuterie creations. Ashley Dooley, the owner of Dooley's Dough, has a different but equally fascinating story. Born and raised in Northwest Arkansas, Ashley's passion for baking sourdough goods began as a way to provide her family with wholesome, nutritious food. What started as a home-based operation quickly grew into a thriving micro-bakery, specializing in sourdough breads, cinnamon rolls, cookies, and more. One of Dooley's Dough's standout products is their Smoked Gouda and Herb Bread, a flavorful loaf that has become a favorite among customers, including Adam and his wife. Ashley's dedication to her craft is evident in the care she puts into each loaf, from the long fermentation process to the generous slices that make for the perfect sandwich bread. As Ashley shares her baking knowledge, she delves into the fascinating world of sourdough. Each sourdough starter is unique, she explains, with its own biodiverse chemical reaction that contributes to the final flavor profile. The longer a sourdough starter is fermented or "cold proofed," the tangier and more complex the flavor becomes. This is why San Francisco sourdough, for example, has such a distinct taste that can't be replicated elsewhere. Ashley's passion for sourdough extends beyond just the flavor, however. She is committed to providing her community with real, nutrient-dense food that is easier to digest than commercially-produced breads. Through her weekly "bread drops" and online ordering system, Ashley has cultivated a loyal following of customers who appreciate the care and craftsmanship that goes into every loaf. For both Jasmine and Ashley, their businesses are a labor of love fueled by their desire to create something special for their families and communities. As mothers, they understand the importance of being present for their children while also pursuing their dreams. Through Swavory Snacks and Dooley's Dough, they have found a way to balance their roles as entrepreneurs and parents, all while sharing their love of food with the world. As the episode comes to a close, Adam reflects on the incredible stories of these two women and the impact they are making in Northwest Arkansas. By showcasing the talents and passions of local entrepreneurs like Jasmine and Ashley, The Bridge is helping to build a stronger, more connected community, one delicious bite at a time.
