go for the dough

By astrojax 30 December 2009 24

as the swiss will say: old bread is not hard; no bread is hard.

ok rioters, a quick look at the search function tells me we haven’t had a rant or boast about the very staple of life – bread – here any recent time…   so, where is the best loaf to be had in sunny canberra, then?  

i gather silo will get a few votes and perhaps some of the vietnamese bakers may not get any.  now i like good bread, a dense dark loaf usually gets my vote, though a soft sourdough with hard butter, home-grown tomato and salt is hard to pass up… but if there is a brilliant ciabatta or a simply delicious white loaf i need to try, let me – and everyone else – know.

where do we get our bread?

What’s Your opinion?

Seconding (thirding?) Chifley IGA for the rye sourdough, especially if still warm! Also love Hughes 210 degrees bakery bread, though I am grrr at them for dropping the Italian bread. And my current fave is the chewy, chewy, woodfired bread from the southside markets (indoors). The plain one is great but I can go through tons of the olive and pesto one. I love the soft, floury pizza bases you can get from some delis/greengrocers too.

Flute in Fyshwick makes fantastic bread and other bakery products. However, they’re not open weekends, and tend to sell out pretty soon after lunch, so get in early.

s-s-a said :

Woodfired breads from the indoor stall at Southside Farmers Market are great (and on Sundays too for poster at #7)

I agree that Cornucopia are nowhere near as good as they were a decade ago, and are shut all of this month anyway.

Good to know Carbone’s is still in production it is absolutely lovely – can you still buy loaves in paper bags at supermarkets?

Yes Carbones is still around, now they trade as Dom’s Woodfired Italian Bread cant get it at big supermarkets like woolies anymore but at some IGA’s and Deli’s still. Best place to find them is at the EPIC markets on Sat mornings and the Old Bus depot markets on Sundays where they also have beautful foccacias and other types.
