The James Beard quote “…good bread with fresh butter, the greatest of feasts” comes to mind when tasting one of Sara Casarrubias’ artisanal loaves. The talented baker, who is a co-owner of Trattoria on Pearl, uses a family recipe to turn out ciabatta-like loaves with a rustic, chewy crust and a soft, slightly tangy interior.
Find the bread at the restaurant or at Black Cat, where it fills the bread baskets. Or, stop by Oliv You & Me for fresh loaves of white or wheat. Better yet, eat a slice—one that’s cut thick, toasted, and topped with slices of fresh Parmigiana Reggiano and a drizzle of Israeli olive oil—right there in the shop.
