Loaves and Wishes
Upon publishing our guide to the city’s best boules, batards and baguettes, we discovered Torontonians’ deep and abiding love of sourdough. One quoted Cervantes—loose translation: “All sorrows are less with bread.” Others just swooned in English.
“I can smell those loaves from here!” —photosandfood, Instagram
“Toronto will be Paris in no time!” —cheerstohappyhour, Instagram
“If you love bread, you know why a list like this is so important.”
But our favourite comment, which was in reference to Petite Thuet’s sourdough starter, came from outside Toronto:
“A 200-year-old starter!! That’s amazing! Do you deliver— to Nashville?”
