Im an unapologetic foodie, which means I indulge in all sorts of sinful eating habits. Good bread, for instance, is one of my favorite foods. For those of you who like to similarly indulge, you should know that Fairfield Countys own Wave Hill Breads bakes some of the finest bread on this side of the Atlantic.
My husband and I found this Frenchman baking the most incredible bread up in Smugglers Notch, Vermont, says Wave Hill owner, Margaret Sapir. We convinced him to apprentice us. We went up over long weekendswhenever we could steal the timeand learned everything we could. He was very philosophical about bread making. Margaret and her husband, Mitch Rapoport, turned the Frenchmans tutelage into the Wilton-based Wave Hill Breads five years ago.
For the first nine months or so, we baked all the bread ourselves. But we couldnt keep up with demand, she says from behind the table at her Westport Farmers Market stand. On cue, a throng of Wave Hill Bread worshipers congregates, demanding their loaves.
Its the best bread ever, offers Westport resident, Lisa Schwartz. Theres no better bread around.
In so many ways, Lisa is right. Good bread, baked with care and the best ingredients, is not only an indulgence. Its a component of a healthy diet. And Wave Hill uses superfoods, like spelt, in their baking process, making it a go-to choice for everyone, whatever your diet.
Margaret and Mitch have gone from practicing their craft in their own kitchen to selling their artisan breads all over Fairfield County. Restaurants and stores from Greenwich to New Haven offer Wave Hills signature bread with its crunchy crust and soft, moist center.
Whatever your daily carb allowance, Wave Hill Breads fit in. Are you ready for a healthy, delicious indulgence? Find out where you can find Wave Hills perfect loaves here .
