…but only if the bread came from Terra Breads and I could choose from anything that they make. My all-time favourite is the fig & anise loaf, which is dark and dense with pockets of licorice-y goodness and dark dried figs. However, the green olive loaf is a close second. Their levain loaf uses a mixture of white and whole wheat flour, and is leavened using a sourdough starter. The resulting texture is yeasty and porous, with a satisfyingly crunchy crust.
It’s expensive stuff – about $5 for a large loaf – but well worth it. The only trouble is, it doesn’t last that long. I dare you not to eat an entire loaf in a day or two.
