Mike the bejkr: Artisan Bread
What is more basic, and more essential, than a loaf of bread? As a true canvas for flavor, a great slice of bread can feature a favorite cheese, make a phenomenal sandwich, be topped with the season's best vegetables, or simply be eaten with a generous slather of good butter. While the possibilities are endless, they all start with a good quality loaf of bread.
We love Mike [the bejkr] Zakowski's bread, and we are so excited to feature three of his unique loaves, both for pre-order and for direct sale this Wednesday. Try his Pain de Campagne, a rustic country miche including rye and spelt flour. There's also his Pain Biologique, a hearty whole grain seed loaf including hemp, sesame, flax, and pumpkin seed. Not to be missed, his Farro Spezzato Batard is a delicious whole wheat bread with cracked spelt. Whatever you do with your bread, when it's this good, it's almost impossible to go wrong...
