the recent thread on hi-rise's sandwiches contained some grumblings about their bread as well. i found this suprising, as i've always loved their bread. it's probably my favorite bakery in boston, which is not exactly lacking for bakeries. i haven't been out to clear flour in awhile, though i get their baguettes at canto 6 in JP.
so i'm wondering if anyone has opinions on best bakeries in boston?
i would suggest 4 categories:
2) other yeast breads (loaves, foccacia, croissants, etc.)
3) quick breads (scones, muffins, sweet breads, etc.)
4) cookies and other whatnot.
i would put clear flour as best for baguettes, and hi-rise as best for other yeast breads and quick breads. any other opinions?
