Great Bread

Finding great bread is a problem for me. I guess I am picky. I want a crunchy crust, a nice chewy texture and real bread flavor. Most breads let me down.  This is one of the reasons I head down town to the Farmers’ Market every Saturday morning all year round.

First there is Egg and Honey with a nice variety of sourdoughs. I get a French baguette most weeks. We have bread with dinner most nights and this is our go to bread. Amelia also makes soft sourdough pretzels that are out of this world. Some weeks she will have surprises, like the week she had cocoa cherry bread….killer! I love when the loaves are still warm and fragrant when I get there.

Now things get complicated…a new baker (at least new to me) has started selling at the Farmers’ Market, All Crumbs Artisanal Bakery. They also make great breads. They do breads with olives or parmesan and garlic. I rarely like flavored bread…these are great. But they also make popcorn, almond cookies that crumble all over my car as I eat them on the way home.. And spicy ham scones which are perfect with homemade bean soup. The bakers at All Crumbs are Kelly Thompson and Gabe Lemay.

So you see my problem? An abundance of great bread and baked goods. How do I choose what to bring home each week? I guess this is not the worst problem to have.

Where do you find great bread?
