Dave’s Killer Bread, whole box-ful

Promotional photograph, loaf of Dave's Killer Bread, 'Good Seed,' stood on end
My definite highlight for the past week has been enjoying a box of Dave’s Killer Bread that the company sent to me: hearty wholegrain breads abundantly rich with seeds.

One of the greatest pleasures in my life is enjoying wholegrain breads. I love the delicious multigrain boule created by Main Street Bakery in Kelseyville and the seeded sourdough created by Village Bakery in Calistoga. I am always delighted to discover new sources of wholegrain seeded goodness.

The Dave’s Killer Bread arrived just before Veteran’s Day and I managed to make it last one week: delicious, hearty breads bearing names like Good Seed, 21 Whole Grains, Powerseed and Blues breads.

After spending a week savoring these breads, I think that they are aptly named. The ingredients lists for the various breads include such delicious components as organic whole wheat, flax, sunflower, sesame and pumpkin seeds.

Seriously, $5 for a quarter loaf?

Jonathan and I met a guy selling organic bread for $5 at the Berkeley Farmers' Market. There were quartered loaves on display that we thought were intended to show off the interior characteristics of the bread. We offered to buy some bread and he whisked out a bagged quarter-loaf. We protested what we believed was unfair pricing and he emphasized the bread is "organic." But organic or no, when we buy bread, we get the entire loaf. That man will not have our custom!
