I just learned that you can order local flour and spelt (besides their awesome Levains and Challahs) through Four Worlds Bakery and am really stoked! I really want to try my hand at some baguettes soon! Here is a great video of Michael “Challahman” Dolich moving the bakery from his basement to the new location at 4423 Chestnut in West Philly using BIKES via Pedal Co-op!
Also, check out this weekend’s episode of a Splendid Table: Locavore Nation! Lynne Kasper talks with Barbara Kingsolver, author of Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life. And there is also a great segment surveying the Locavore Nation volunteers who just finished up a year of acquiring 80 percent of their food from local sources. Really interesting observations and experiences!
