Found It!

Ever since I returned from France, I have a constant craving of good bread. I mean French baguettes, European-style bread, not the crap they sell here. I went so far as to buy a bread maker and experiment with it, with pretty good results.

Still, this morning I managed to find the real thing. I ran across a small bakery in Dumbo on Yelp name Almondine and decided to try it. The baguette was exactly like the ones I had in France, probably because the baker/owner is French. I also tried the almond croissant – since it was so highly praised on Yelp – and I have to say it’s probably the best croissant I had in my life. It sucks the place it’s a bit out of the way for me, but I’m sure I’ll go there again.

    Did you try bread from Sullivan Street Bakery or Granddaisy?

    PS. You will never be able to make a baguette in a bread maker. Try NYT no-knead bread. It’s as close as it gets to a professional french bread. And it’s super easy to make.

    I sure will! thanks!

    Well, yeah, I had no illusions about that. But it makes a decent “french” bread.
