Soul Food

Click here for details of the bread

Every morning hundreds of sourdough loaves are hand peeled out of a French artisan stone bread oven and sit crackling as they cool on a hand-crafted Elm bread table. This is no tough, dry supermarket sourdough; this is bread that feeds the soul, bread that comforts you in a way that nothing made in an hour by a machine ever could.

Customers talk about why this bread is the best in the country, why the owners persist in mega-slow fermentation, baking with difficult, low-gluten ancient grains, and why it all seems like a mission rather than a business to them.

None of this really matters; what counts is that this bread just makes you happy.
