"Plain fresh bread, its crust shatteringly crisp. Sweet cold butter. There is magic in the way they come together in your mouth to make a single perfect bite."--Ruth Reichl

Always one of our favorites!

When I first met Rachel this was one of the very first dinners Mom cooked for her. She could not believe how delicious this dish was and it remains as possibly her favorite dinner recipe today.
