I could have hugged her; I can’t think of a more cheery thing to think about than warm, freshly-baked artisan bread. My mind started reeling with thoughts of flour and butter...
It seems every country has a bread they're famous for, and in Seattle was can enjoy these delights in the comfort of our own backyard. My favorite Seattle bread moments include:
1. Italian Panetonne at DeLaurenti's,
2. Israeli Challah at Three Girls' Bakery in Pike Place Market,
3. Blackburn Wheat from Macrina Bakery on Queen Anne
4. Rosemary rolls, handmade by Andrew at Canlis5. Rustic baguette with fresh butter and French Onion Soup at Le Panier
