Maybe it’s just me.or I’m spoiled with great subs shops…but the bread in the photos above looks average at best….what non Italians would call “Italian bread”.
I agree. The subs I grew up with all came on half loaves of great bread — crusty on the outside and tender on the inside. Shaped like the boats for which the sandwiches were named, these loaves were pointed at each end.
If I could give you an example I would. But I’m in Ohio and the loaves of bread are in stores in Connecticut.
