While dishes at a fine dining establishment can impress with beautiful plating or bold flavours, one course speaks volumes without all the fanfare. Bread, a household staple, gets elevated in the kitchens of these restaurants and easily becomes the highlight of the meal when paired with housemade spreads and condiments.
From dinner rolls of both the sweet and savoury variety to the only Italian naturally leavened bread awarded PDO (protected designation of origin), these eight restaurants and bars have surprised us with their bread courses. With as much thought and effort put into the rest of their offerings, they are testament to the versatility of one most understated dishes in the world.
