A SPECIAL THANKS TO DAVID AUERBACH

David Auerbach, a frequent commentator on this blog, is among other things a bread maven [he apparently has his own wood fired oven, which is pretty impressive], aside from being an MIT-trained philosopher teaching in my neighborhood at NC State.  In response to my e-mailed appeal, he recommended three Triangle area shops where one can get good bread.  This morning, at seven a.m., Susie and I set out for Loaf in Durham to try their wares.  Needless to say, we got lost [Durham, North Carolina, like Worcester, MA, is a city into which it is impossible to drive without getting lost.]  But with the help of my IPHone's GPS system and sheer luck, we stumbled on the shop and even found a handicap parking place across the street.

Well, the croissant was warm and flaky and very buttery, and the big loaf of bread I bought tastes very good on a first sampling.  Baguettes do not come out of the oven until eleven, so I shall have to return.  Warmest thanks to David for the guidance.  In my universe, this ranks considerably above tips for disambiguating the Critique of Pure Reason.
