A world of hearth breads is now available at Pilgrim’s Market in Coeur d’Alene. The natural market hired master baker Jim Hanson and recently added a European, stone hearth oven to the store. Now, French baguettes, ciabatta, German korni, kalamata olive rosemary bread, hazelnut pear bread and even a gluten-free boule are regular offerings. Hanson has more than 23 years experience with hearth breads. He said in a telephone interview that he fell into baking, “I answered an ad for a baker’s assistant.” He started with simple pastries, but found a love for naturally leavened, old world artisan breads. He trained in San Francisco and Paris and has received 17 awards for his baking/Lorie Hutson, SR. More here.
