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.
