great baguette or other bread?

A Fish Called Wanda | May 3, 2007 05:22 AM

Dear Maryland Hounds,

I am from Boston and will be catering my brother's rehearsal dinner in Silver Spring, MD in the end of this month. Although I have family in that area, none of them know where to get good bread. I don't just mean better than wonderbread. I mean REALLY good baguette, focaccia, etc. that is on par with what you'd get in France and Italy (or at least close :) Good crust, nice open crumb, proper amount of salt, and all that good stuff.

Can anyone recommend a bakery between Silver Spring and Baltimore that carries such breads? In Boston, Whole Foods carries most of the good local bakeries. So while the breads made by Whole Foods are kind of pathetic, you can always find good bread there if you know which companies to look for. Do they do that in Maryland too? Which bakeries should I be looking for if I go to Whole Foods?

Thanks so much!
