Where to buy bread bowls in Toronto?
Hi - I'm looking to buy ready-made bread bowls (or bread rounds sizeable enough that I can cut off the top and dig out a bowl) in Toronto. I'm serving beef stew and I'd love to do it in a tasty, crusty bread bowl.
Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions as to which bakeries/stores I could try?
Thanks - I appreciate any help.
Health Bread (previously Open Window) on Eglinton just west of Bathurst has fabulous round-ish-shaped pumpernickel and rye breads. They're crusty, very good breads. They'd be perfect for your needs. I don't know if all Health Bread/Open Window bakeries have the same bread products.
You might also want to call in advance, because this store tends not to carry a huge amount of bread and often sells out of these particular breads by midday.
Do you have Costco nearby? Here in Calif. they have them, four to a bag I believe. Well, not already "bowled" but the round loaves.
I recently bought a round pumpernickel bread at the Real Canadian Superstore at Dufferin & Steeles. It was very crusty on the outside and soft in the middle. It's the type of bread that you would use to put a spinach dip in.
