I Could Live by Bread Alone
Anytime we get anywhere near Mendocino, we have to stop at the Brickery, the stand-alone bakery behind the renowned Cafe Beaujolais restaurant. This is where the breads are baked for the restaurant, but the bakers also sell retail right out the window. Our go-to bread = Austrian Sunflower. Wow. We take loaves home and freeze them, to hold us over until the next trip. (Thawed and toasted, the way to go.) Another tip: When the Brickery's closed, walk down the passage along the west side of the restaurant and ring at the kitchen window--they will sell you loaves from their stash as available!
