   Discussion: What's the best bread?
Gordondon son of Ethelred · 13 years, 4 months ago
This is too hard a question. It depends on what I want the bread for. If I'm just eating a piece of bread and butter it is probably Challah. For a Pastrami Sandwich I want Rye or Cornbread. Not the yellow stuff, the Jewish Cornbread which is a lot like rye. I like my peanut butter on multi-grain. You have to throw in pumpernickle somewhere too.

Michael (foof) Maki Back · 13 years, 4 months ago
I never knew there was such a thing as "Jewish Cornbread."

Are you just mocking us silly gentiles?
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 13 years, 4 months ago
I would never mock the Gentiles. I just don't know what else to call it. It is the Corn Bread you buy at Jewish Bakeries that is not made from corn. I have some in the house right now. Yum.
Andrea Krause Back · 13 years, 4 months ago
How can it be corn bread if it's not made from corn??? :)
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 13 years, 4 months ago
Remember corn originally meant any grain.

Here is a recipe for "Jewish Corn Bread". It seems that I'm not the only one that calls it that.
Paul the KOA · 13 years, 4 months ago
In general I'm partial to french bread, though for toast and sandwhiches white honey bread is wonderful. Navaho fried bread is also rather delish.
Michael (foof) Maki Back · 13 years, 4 months ago
Oh, man. I'm convinced that frybread is one of the reasons diabetes is so common amongst people of Native American Ancestry. :-D So good, and so terrible all at the same time.
Gordondon son of Ethelred · 13 years, 4 months ago
That totally should have been a choice.
Andrea Krause Back · 13 years, 4 months ago
Didn't occur to me. Never met a person who didn't like SOME form of bread! :) (people who can't eat most? yeah, but there's usually something...)
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 13 years, 4 months ago
I was just making the pun, I love nan bread.
Andrea Krause Back · 13 years, 4 months ago

oh, heh! didn't even notice the spelling.  Never heard of it. :)

I am so dense today.

Paul D. Beasi Back · 13 years, 4 months ago
You haven't had naan? You are SO coming to India House with us some time.
Andrea Krause Back · 13 years, 4 months ago
What's it taste like?
Paul D. Beasi Back · 13 years, 4 months ago
How to describe... it's a leavened flat bread made from flour and it's REALLY tasty with butter.

There's also poori, which is an unleavened wheat bread that is deep fried. OMFG.

I don't know if you like Indian food, but it's worth it to go just for the bread.
Andrea Krause Back · 13 years, 4 months ago
Yeah I suspect I wouldn't be keen on Indian food. But...I've never shied away from just eatng a pile of bread. :)
Paul D. Beasi Back · 13 years, 4 months ago
You might be surprised. There are some things that I absolutely love.
Andrea Krause Back · 13 years, 4 months ago

Probably some things, yeah. Anything with curry I think is out though because the smell of it makes me ill.

The hard part about discovering new foods is...it's hard to shell out money for something you may end up hating. :)  Need a buffet! :)

Rimbo Back · 13 years, 4 months ago
Oh, man, I forgot about Indian breads. My vote is changed to Chapati.
Paul D. Beasi Back · 13 years, 4 months ago
So we can just order a bunch of a different stuff and you can try it. And meanwhile, you have bread. :)
100% dainty! Back · 13 years, 3 months ago
since we're on the subject of puns . . . . .and bread . . . .
Rimbo · 13 years, 4 months ago
We're really hurting for poll topics. Bread?




. . . multi-grain. I need the fiber.
Andrea Krause Back · 13 years, 4 months ago
I like food polls. :) Taste is a fascinating subject for me.
I can see the bunny Back · 13 years, 4 months ago
Flax seed bread - nummy. :)
ChrisChin is Getting Old · 13 years, 4 months ago
A nice sourdough baguette that is warm and toasty will just make me all sorts of happy. Though any type of crusty baguette will do that to me. This is why I love getting soup at places like Panera, cause it comes with a hunk of baugette...mmmmm...
goovie is married! Back · 13 years, 4 months ago
omg, panera's french baguette rocks my socks.

the challah we get at the j is ridiculously good.

basically, bread. bread bread bread bread bread.
meh Back · 13 years, 4 months ago
The "fun" thing about being poorish (especially before we got teh interwebs at the new place) is going to Panera to waste an afternoon, and just ordering a big ol' french baguette and some hot tea, then spending the afternoon munching good bread, drinking tea (yaye for refills on that), and sitting on the wireless internet.
renita · 13 years, 4 months ago
i've been into flax bread for awhile now, in a rye base.

and i recently tried making spelt and that was really tasty, but i need to give it another go with a few tweaks :)

but really, any bread that's still warm from the oven with a slab of butter on it. *heaven*
Andrea Krause · 13 years, 4 months ago
I never realized rye was so popular!
Phoenix Back · 13 years, 4 months ago
yeah but only when you can drink it :D
Gordondon son of Ethelred · 13 years, 4 months ago
I love bread and had the idea for a bread restaurant. All that would be served is a large varity of freshly baked breads and spreads. The most popular breads would be served every day and the others would be daily specials.

Andrea Krause Back · 13 years, 4 months ago
I think it's called a bakery. :)
Paul D. Beasi Back · 13 years, 4 months ago
Reminds me of Panera *yum*.
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 13 years, 4 months ago
I just came out with a name for it: The House of Pain.
Andrea Krause Back · 13 years, 4 months ago

I would so go there. :)

.oO to the house of paaaaaaaaaaiiiin Oo. /boingo

nate... Back · 13 years, 4 months ago
That's usually a kinda bad idea.

They opened a restaurant here in town that only. sold. rice. pudding.

That's it.

Needless to say, they're now closed. :)

Nik Chaikin Back · 13 years, 4 months ago
I like the idea, LOVE the name.
Mamalissa! Back · 13 years, 4 months ago
I'm fairly certain that the rice pudding store in NYC, Rice to Riches, is still open.
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 13 years, 4 months ago
They are and they have a
fancy schmancy website. Watch the introductory animation. Then watch the animations in the "Vibe" section. Somebody there was having too much fun.
nate... Back · 13 years, 4 months ago
hmm.. yeah, I'd imagine a intensely niche concept like that would actually work in a big city.

not so much in a small town. ;D
Erica: movin' to Ohio!! · 13 years, 4 months ago
since i was knee high to a grasshopper, i could eat a whole loaf of that fabulous stuff by myself. the only other thing that comes close in my mind is amish friendship bread, but i think of that as more a dessert like thing, so they don't stay in the same arena in my mind.

AND just to be true to my heritage, guess i have to shout out for the dutch potato bread too. bestest for sammiches.
renita · 13 years, 4 months ago
...irish soda bread in the oven.
a yeasty type one takes too laong at this hour :)
Jan Klump · 13 years, 4 months ago
I've rarely met a bread I didn't like.
Arbie Back · 13 years, 4 months ago
I think Jan's answer is the best one I have seen so far and the closest to my own feelings on the subject. I voted for sourdough mostly because I have a nice big round of it sitting downstairs calling my name.
renita Back · 13 years, 4 months ago
amen, janmom :)
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 13 years, 3 months ago
That could change. Ever hear the story of how raison bread was invented?
Rimbo Back · 13 years, 3 months ago
No, I haven't, but I'm sure you'll share with us its . . . "raison d'etre?"
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 13 years, 3 months ago
Strangely enough I can't find this anywhere on the web even though I've heard the story from multiple sources off the bread. It sounds like a possible Urban Legand. With those qualifiers...

The Tsar of Russia was looked in his bread and saw what he thought was a roach, it actually was a roach, or some bug. He was outraged and called the baker who thought quickly and said, "no it is a raisin." And so he was forced to invent raisin bread.
Rimbo Back · 13 years, 3 months ago
Man, thank goodness there's finally a reason for me to hate raisin bread the way I do. And that reason is cockroaches.
Jan Klump · 13 years, 3 months ago
Thanks for the vote of confidence. I thought the question a good one, however.
Mamalissa! · 13 years, 3 months ago
I don't even know her nickel!!!
