Breadery's Sourdough Bread At Roots

The Breadery has abandoned us for Catonsville, but it is still sending good loaves back to Howard County.

I grabbed a sourdough loaf at Roots in Clarksville, and I have to admit that it broke my stereotypes.  It's a light, crisp bread.  I'm a sucker for loaves with that contrast between the crust and a soft inside.  I've always thought of Breadery as heavier, whole grain loaves.  The sourdough broke that mold, and it made a delicious sandwich with tomato, greens, and some prosciutto that I crisped in a pan.
