Hearth Wood Fired Bread -- Plymouth

I have only seen one previous post on this outfit and they deserve a lot more Chowhound love than that. We had been enjoying their French Country bread for a number of months -- so much, in fact, that my father quit baking his own bread after 45 years or so because he finally found one he liked better than his. Then tragedy struck -- the market he was buying it from quit carrying it. So I emailed them and they very kindly gave me a list of their vendors and farmers markets which I have reproduced for you below. Russo's, it is worth noting, gets daily deliveries.

On Saturday I made a pilgrimage of sorts to their Plymouth location with a friend and discovered that they are now making a number of other breads in addition to their French Country bread, almost all of which we sampled -- Rosemary, Baker's Harvest (multigrained and seeded and FABULOUS), Fondi (a sort of ciabatta but better), Raisin Pumpernickel Rye, and maybe one or two others. Since bread freezes so well if wrapped correctly we bought rather a lot. And we may have persuaded them to add another farmers market in Cohasset, not sure. Meanwhile we got to watch two workers hard at work shaping loaves individually by hand although we did not see the wood-fired Gueulard masonry oven.

This is bread worth seeking out!
