Local Bread Company Founder Wins James Beard Award
Last October I shared with you that Daniel Leader had just released his book "Living Bread: Tradition and Innovation in Artisan Bread Making" now I get to share that his book has won an award. And not just any award, he won the 2020 James Beard Media Award for Baking & Desserts. It shouldn't be any surprise after all Dan the founder of Bread Alone and his team are amazing. I can't go shopping without buying some bake perfection made by Bread Alone.
Bread Alone products can be found all over the Hudson Valley. It doesn't matter if you shop at a big grocery or a small cheese shop chances are you will find there delicious bread on the shelves. I am a personal fan of the San Francisco Sour Dough it makes the best roast beef sandwich.
I personally cannot make bread. I have tried and failed. I don't even think one of those "do it all for you" bread makers could help my poorly trained skill set. So I have learned to leave bread making up to the professionals. Their are a lot of Hudson Valley bakeries that make great bread. Chances are you have one in your town. And if you are looking for a yummy read this summer I would check out Dan's award winning book.
