Behind a glass pane at the Reading Terminal Market in Philadelphia you can watch an assembly line of bonneted and bearded Amish men and women kneading and forming malty dough.

Walk round to the other side of the counter at Fisher’s and order up some soft pretzels, straight from the oven, sprinkled with crunchy salt and slathered with butter. They are chewy, slightly sweet, and have a crisp, thin crust that offers just the right amount of textural contrast to the airy interior.
