San Fran and NYC have my undying love for their fun funky stores and their BAKERIES. I shipped bread made in Brooklyn in for a dinner Ruggerio came to 2 years ago...olive pits were thrown in the fire to scent the loaves.Royal Bakery. Bread sticks from Semolinas in SF,Acmes sourdough Raisin Pumpernickle from NY Huge rye loaves from bakeries that the servers are speaking Yiddish. I've wanted to try Poulain, some day! Is anyone else this gaga over hearth breads. And where do you get yours?
