There were several article on bread making and artisanal breadmakers in the Triangle in this week'a edition of The Independent. A couple of the articles were written by David Aurbach. Could this be the same David A./Sinophile who posts here on Chowhound from time to time? If so, nice job, David. Interesting reads.
By the way, the merchants that were listed as making breads in the artisanal style were La Farm in Cary (and also carried in the local Whole Foods stores), Guglhupf, Rue Cler, and Ninth Street Bakery in Durham, and Weaver Street in Carrboro.
