Our short trip to Rome was wonderful.  We love the Italian culture, language, art, history and, of course, especially the food, wine and coffee.  We had some amazing meals, thanks especially to some recommendations of Cesare Casella of Salumeria Rossi, around the corner from the bakery, which we adore.

We did not stop for one minute, criss crossing the city, trying to see and to taste as much as possible in our four short days.  One thing our explorations reaffirmed is that what we do here at Levain Bakery is still exceptional.  There are very few places in the world (literally) that bake everything they sell freshly each day, and on the premises.  Although almost everything we bake has a longer shelf life than one day we believe that if you are coming to our bakery you should get the freshest product possible.  It also allows us to donate to organizations in need and give something back to the community and our world.

We hope that our customers appreciate that the reason we sometimes run out and perhaps do not have a huge selection is because we try to make everything we make the best and the freshest possible.

Rome

It seems, here at Levain Bakery, that a few of us are in love with Italy as well as baking.  Some of us even attempt to study Italian in our free time and fantasize about living there.  So it should not be surprising that two of us are in Rome now, for four short days, and will report back on the sites, the food and the wine next week!

And, of course, we will also have the results of our traditional, unofficial, Oscar pool!
