bread + haven is a bunch of little histories of people and bread, mostly in New York, including vintage recipes.
Bread is such an expressive food. It gives sensuous and nourishing form to the idea of a pastoral utopia to come; it deliciously expresses treasured cultural identity, urbane and progressive modernity, upward mobility, salt-of-the-earth humility, conformity or rebellion.
But whatever the meaning, bread faithfully provides some small respite in the middle of complicated circumstances. In that spirit, I offer this bread and these stories to you.
