My Fascination with Bread

I never asserted a lot of thought on bread. I enjoy bread, I eat it almost daily. Bread is a food where I underestimate the beauty of it.  There is a real science in making truly delicious bread.  It is a talent and skill that is not to be taken lightly.  When you go to the grocery store, there is plenty to choose from, but it turns into a haze of reading the nutrition and calorie charts. 

It is amazing to realize that only two places on the island actually bakes bread, Feel Good Bakery and Aria International Market.  As you know I am a true believer in having more bakery businesses on the island.  I have been pleading for years to have more bakeries, but these types of businesses do not come. Boniere could not be profitable in their space, Crema never came and advertised for a long time on Park Street.  If you are a lover of lavash bread, Aria International Market on Webster Street bakes it.  Lavash is a Middle Eastern bread usually consumed at breakfast with feta cheese, fresh tomatoes and basil and slightly toasted.  I have eaten my fair share of lavash and I do enjoy eating it.  However, I am not sure if my hips enjoy it as much as I do.

I have written a few blog entries of Feel Good Bakery. I do enjoy eating their baked products.  Their prices are expensive and I do wonder at times, if the cost is worth it. (Acme Bakery in the Ferry Terminal has lower prices for higher or same quality products.)  Thus, when I am really hungry, I take into consideration of the number of items that I buy to control costs.  So when I see the the two for one items, I jump on the opportunity.
