the most heavenly bread
24 August 2009
bread: i love to eat it. i love to make it. and i love exploring local bakeries to unearth that perfect loaf. i couldn’t go to sleep tonight without paying homage to the staff of Bread Farm, an artisan bakery based in the very cool little village of Edison, WA.
the sublime loaf? sour cherry-lemon bread. it’s chewy. moist. light. with an incredible texture and striking good looks. oh, that i could someday craft something as divine. it’s the stuff my dreams are made of.
and while i wouldn’t hesitate to drive the 40 miles between our place and Edison, i have the good fortune of having Bread Farm come to me—courtesy of the Port of Everett Marina farmers’ market.
every word on every page of Bread Farm’s Web site makes me feel that this team has found and is honoring their true north. a commitment to quality (a core tenet of my own creative philosophy) and to sustainable, local, organic food production. a passion for their craft (yeah, another of my core tenets). the stickers Bread Farm places on the bags that safeguard their creations read, we dig local farms. well, Bread Farm, i totally dig you.
What a great blog! I never knew you were such an amazing writer! I totally enjoyed everything you wrote, but mostly I’m anxious to try that apple crisp recipe! I will look forward to hearing more, Deb…thanks!
thanks, Susan! i’m happy you enjoyed the stories. will be anxious to hear how your apple crisp turns out; honestly, it’s a quick, easy recipe that yields consistently great results and will get you kudos. glad you stopped by!
