Designer Bakeries have dubbed bread as a luxury in some sense.  I don’t know when last I bought bread in a plastic bag- it just isn’t my preferred dough no more.  The natural ingredients that are being used at these artisan bakeries now mean that people will have to pay- but it seems the people don’t mind.

I’m going to introduce you to some of the coolest bakeries on this planet- let’s do this.
