Bread of life

"Good bread is the most fundamentally satisfying of all foods; and good bread with fresh butter, the greatest of all feasts." - James Beard

This is Flax Seed Sourdough. As Cookie Monster would say, om nom nom nom...

On the menu this evening; fish en croute using puff pastry left over from the holidays. I used chard from the garden and pacific cod instead of the requisite spinach and flounder. It's challenging to figure out which fish are about to be trawled into oblivion and which are doing alright.. here is some great information about which seafood choices are the safest and most sustainable.

Perusing my favorite food blogs this evening, I came across this delightful article about a Persian food tradition. Isn't it beautiful?
