Salt yeast bread at Rhodes Bakery ATL

EP | Oct 13, 2005 10:17 AM

Its a loaf, but a small one, probably about 1/3 to 1/2 the size of a basic 99 cent publix white sandwich bread. Its more dense, each loaf weighs 16oz despite its size. They use some cornmeal in it, but it has much more flour than cornmeal. It has a wonderful texture and smell. I just bought it this morning and can't wait to make little finger sandwiches out of all sorts of different things. A friend of mine told me about it, she grew up in Macon in the 50's and said that style was their everyday bread back then. This is the only place around here that she knows of that still makes it. The label actually says 'salt rising bread', and its $2.49 a loaf. They are sold sliced very thinly, or unsliced. Rhodes is on Cheshire Bridge almost directly across the street from Woodfire Grill. They are open 8 - 5, closed sunday and monday. There is also another one up in Roswell. Try it out and let me know how you like it what you did with it.
