New York – You and your bakeries. Why do they make me eternally happy?
One of the most memorable things I ate over break was a piece of bread from Sullivan Street Bakery. I came here for a pre-breakfast (wonton mein from Bo Ky) snack around 7 am. It was beautiful day – quiet New York morning. A slight bit chilly, though nothing like some carbs to warm you up eh?
Pizza Bianca. $1.60 for a foot long slice. It doesn’t get more basic than this. The crust is marvelously simple and satisfying. Thin and crackly, it yields to reveal “innards” so blissfully soft. Just a touch of olive oil, fresh rosemary and a sprinkle of salt and there you have it. Pizza Bianca.
And I must say, it goes down rather quickly. I thought the cut to be rather large but finished in a matter of minutes. Soo addicting. Oh bread, the things you do to me!
