Traditions v. Baguettes

Need to get over to Philippe Levin's bakery in Paris’s Ninth Arrondissement on the Right Bank to try one of his "traditions" - a 'baguette-like bread but made exclusively with flour, salt, water and leavening. There can be absolutely no additives. Apparently Parisians line up around the block in order to get their hands on one these breads.

A Dynamites

Finally tried a Dynmaties at the Early Bird in Oakland, Maine. Sort of like a sloppy joe but kicked up a notch.

If you're up in Winslow, check out Maynard's Chocolates.  Bob W. says the "Needham's look great". Don't forget their "barks and clusters".

Good looking sandwiches
