This is about bread

Ken Forkish is a baker. He says, "To create food consistently at that level requires an obsession with perfection, a soul level connection with food, and a total respect for the raw materials that extracts the maximum they have to offer. But there’s another level too, that to me just seems like I am centered and living my destiny, to do something as well as I know how to do it, always trying to do it better, and giving people a fundamental pleasure with the result of my labors."

He doesn't write badly either. He goes on: "I love the blast of steamy, bread-smelling hot air that comes from the oven when the bread is unloaded, and the sounds of dozens of loaves all singing in their crackly soprano, still baking, happy to be there on the finished bread rack."

And he lives and works and bakes bread right here in Portland. Where have I been?

I'm going there after work to find out just how fabulous this bread of his is. Stay tuned...
