Sullivan Street Bakery

    Bread is, of course, more than just flour and water. Its significance spans the realms of society and culture, and at Sullivan Street Bakery the importance of bread is not taken lightly. The founder, Jim Lahey, first learned about the art of bread baking in Italy. He returned to the U.S. and worked 37 different jobs before finally following his dream and returning to Italy to research bread. He came back to New York equipped with wild yeast he had cultivated while abroad and opened Sullivan Street Bakery in 1994. Today the bakery has locations in Hell's Kitchen and Chelsea, and specializes in small-batch bread, Roman-style pizza, rustic Italian pastries and cookies. Ingredients are sourced locally whenever possible, and Jim creates many of the recipes while he is experimenting in the kitchen. In addition to these aspects, the bread is distinguished by its long period of fermentation, which results in full, rich flavors. Jim and his skilled staff take a personal approach, focusing on the quality of each loaf, and finding great pleasure in a beautifully crafted bread still warm from the ovenShow lessRead more
