A baguette from the Cafe Atlantico in Sint Maarten is probably the best bread that I have had, along with a good challah.

Fresh croissant from one of the eateries at the France Pavilion in Disneyworld's EPCOT center. I'm not much of a "breadie" though, so that may not be saying much..

There was a local bakery in LA/Socal that used to sell boutique Euro-style wild yeast breads at specialty stores & some Farmer's markets. Their Fougasse was amazing. Not just the crust, but the texture & pull inside.

Yeah, I had a sourdough, multi-grain baguette that was that good a few years ago.

When I was a kid, Mama always had a bowl of sourdough starter in the fridge and we fed it regularly. We had fresh, homemade, hot sourdough rolls with practically every meal....hot melted butter....running down your chin.....that is one of the best memories ever. I have never found anything to match it 50 years later.

Blue Dog Bakery in Louisville, KY - amazing bread, desserts and food. Food & Wine Magazine stated that Blue Dog's bread rivaled the finest breads of Europe and the United States.

Unfortunately, about a year ago I found out that I have Celiac disease and can never eat wheat, rye or barley again - not even a little cheat - so sadly, no more Blue Dog bread for me.

My vote is for the thick extra sourdough bread that is served in SF, Monterey, Half Moon Bay etc seafood restaurants. I don't know what it is - maybe its just sitting on a pier by the ocean makes it extra special to me. It's the only time I will allow myself to slather the bread with butter. I'm drooling as I type this.

Another awesome bread that comes to mind is a baguette style bread I once bought in a specialty store (can't remember the name). It was a wheat sourdough type with lots of nuts and seeds. Very very good.

I am partial to my homemade sourdough, but the best bread I ever had was the ciabatta baked from Craig Ponsford's recipe. It has an incredible texture and flavor. It takes several days to prepare, so I rarely make it.
