I am looking to surprise my new orleans born husband with a fabulous cochon de lait po'boy. I can make some mean pork, but finding a light soft french bread that rivals the po'boy bread you get in New Orleans has eluded me. Can anyone recommend a bakery/market/anywhere that has a bread similar to what you get in New Orleans? We were just there last week, and all we talked about was how we cant get the same type of bread up here. I know its all about the water, but I want make a try at it.
Any thoughts, chowhounders?? I am looking for something in the Fairfield county area but will venture farther if need be.
