Arcangeli Artichoke Bread…One of the Best Foods on Earth

Just a quick post today about some of the best bread this side of, well, anywhere.

If ever you are driving up the coast of California between Santa Cruz and San Francisco, be sure to take the 5 minute jaunt off of Route 1 to Pescadero. Arcangeli market sells this artichoke bread, which is heavenly. Seriously. The bread itself is wonderful, the artichokes are delicious, and there’s this salty garlic topping on the bread that puts it over the top.

Plus, I love Pescadero. It’s small, it’s quaint, it’s beautiful.

You’re welcome.

    That looks absolutely incredible! And since I’m no where near the coast of CA, I’m now going to have to figure out if I can make something like this.

    Moved from California 13 years ago, and the taste of this bread is still in my memory. It truly is amazing. Wish there was a recipe available. Let me know if you ever hear of one.

    Had several loaves of this during my trip to CA this Spring. It is absolutely wonderful. May have to get one of my CA friends to pick some up and ship it to me in UT

    Be prepared to spend an arm and a leg. I bought a jar of marinara sauce ($12.99), bread ($7.00), and 2 bottles of flavored olive oil. Total $52.
