Russian black bread
I'm curing a salmon filet for a function next Saturday and would love to have it accompanied by sliced baguette-sized (or smaller) loaves or genuine black bread. The Rubischlager pumpernickel will do but cannot compete with real bakery fare. Anyone know where to get these between CC, Chestnut Hill and out here in Collegeville/Phoenixville/Lansdale area? I never get to NE Philly anymore so that is out.
Metropolitan bakery makes ficelle that would fit the baguette or smaller category. Ric's makes a black bread that looks good but I haven't tried it yet - they are at the headhouse farmers market and not sure where else. I used to love the black bread from a bakery off 5th street in olney whose name escapes me now...but that was 20 years ago at least.
