Bread, glorious bread


If any of your kids are like mine, then they love bread. If there is bread in the room, Zyla will stand for nothing else, especially if it’s a crusty baguette.

tjndc5-5b3×22eqrzryvckn6m5_layout.jpgOver the weekend, we went to Port Chester and visited Kneaded Bread, a very cool bakery on North Main Street that has some tasty, if not, creative fresh-baked offerings.

They had about a dozen varieties and I wanted to buy every single loaf in the shop. I ended up purchasing the aged provolone boule, which has the cheese baked right in to it…”yum, yum, yum” as Zyla likes to say when she likes what she’s eating. We also got some chocolate bread, a pecan/cranberry loaf and assorted rolls. Zyla is probably eating some right now.

Kneaded Bread is the type of place you want in your neighborhood.  And while it’s been there for years, I’m only now just discovering it. Unfortunately, I live about 40 minutes north of Port Chester, so it won’t be a place I’ll be stopping in on a regular basis. Anybody know of any other delicious artisanal bread spots in northern Westchester or Putnam? If so, do tell!!!
