Bread | East Wenatchee, WA | April 2020

“Bread making is one of those almost hypnotic businesses, like a dance from some ancient ceremony. It leaves you filled with one of the world’s sweetest smells. There is no chiropractic treatment, no yoga exercise, no hour of meditation that will leave you emptier of bad thoughts than the homey ceremony of making bread.”

— from “The Art of Eating” by American food writer M.F.K. Fisher (d. 1992)
