I was in marketing in our conventional food industry, and I was getting more and more disillusioned with what I was selling. At the same time, my wife and I had been going “back to the land” in our own lives, raising as much of our food on our own and buying the rest from small local farmers.

Here’s a note for Advanced bread-bakers: I know that you will have noticed that this recipe doesn’t include some sugar to feed the yeast. But with the long rising time, it isn’t necessary.
The ambiance is pretty rad. Fun and hip artists Sara and Dara are usually at the counter cooking soup and taking orders. There are only two tables inside; but, with Seattle Center so close, why not have a picnic on the grass?
