Break Bread with Wave Hill

I’m 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 County’s 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 Smuggler’s Notch, Vermont,” says Wave Hill owner, Margaret Sapir. “We convinced him to apprentice us. We went up over long weekends—whenever we could steal the time—and learned everything we could. He was very philosophical about bread making.” Margaret and her husband, Mitch Rapoport, turned the Frenchman’s 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 couldn’t keep up with demand,” she says from behind the table at her Westport Farmer’s Market stand. On cue, a throng of Wave Hill Bread worshipers congregates, demanding their loaves.

“It’s the best bread ever,” offers Westport resident, Lisa Schwartz. “There’s 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. It’s 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 Hill’s 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 Hill’s perfect loaves here .
