"I became an acolyte of Mitchell Rapoport and Margaret Sapir when they started baking their three-grain pain de campagne at a little shop off Route 7 in Wilton. What a magnificent loaf it is: muscular crust, dense crumb, and flavor that is fine with nothing added and ..."   [Read More]

An extremely sticky and extremely delicious sticky bun is now part of the expanded repertoire at Wave Hill.

At once light and chewy, Wave Hill's bialy is crowded with caramelized onions.

There are dense, sticky macaroons and there are frothy, featherweight ones. Wave Hill's are definitively in the latter category -- ethereal and elegant.

As its name says, Just Crust is just crust. But for some of us, that's like saying, 'just orgasmic.' If you like the crunch of good crust, this is the last word.

Wave Hill loaves are made using a natural fermentation process that lasts over eight hours. Although elegant, they pack full flavor that rewards a serious chaw.

The crust on this loaf is firm and chewy, not at all brittle. Probably the best thing to do with it -- if you need to do something other than tear at it straight from the bag -- is dip it into some really good olive oil ... or maybe make it into bruschetta ... or spread it with tapenade.

In the beginning: Bakers Mitchell Rapoport and Margaret Sapir stand at a table with the huge bomb of dough they were working on when I visited about 9:30 in the morning shortly after their bakery opened for business. Three hours later, the loaf I ate was still oven-warm. They have since moved to larger quarters in Norwalk.

The 'French Energy Muffin' was so named because it is what Tour de France bikers eat before the race. It is rich with coconut, apple, brown sugar, flax seeds and carrots.
