There's been a lot of discussion about the artisanal food renaissance -- think small batch ice cream, fancy pickles or bean-to-bar chocolate. In the same vein, now bread is getting its well-deserved chance in the spotlight. Details magazine has released a feature on America's gourmet bread renaissance for the January 2013 issue. Included is everything from bread pairings (think everything from cheese to duck hearts) to exotic breads and dips (pork butter, anyone?).
Hopefully this means the bakeries profiled will influence those restaurants still serving stale, tasteless bread before meal service. We're happy to carbo-load -- it just has to be worth it.
Details has also compiled a list of the best new bread bakeries in America, and has shared the results with HuffPost Food. So grab yourself some pork butter and check out the selections below:
