Extra Sauce: Short List Runner-Up

November 29th 03:11pm, 2012

{The Daily Bread Bakery & Cafe’s baguette}

While we searched for the perfect baguette for this month’s Short List, we dismissed plenty of lightweight, flimsy, 3½-inch-high loaves that were nothing like the real-deal baton. In order to find our top three, we subjected each baguette to seven – yes, seven – tests. Read about (and see) our finalists here. And as for the baguette that fell just shy of taking home a medal? The runner-up prize goes to St. Louis Bread Co.

St. Louis Bread Co., offers one of the most flavorful French baguettes in town. The recipe uses just the right amount of salt and the interior tastes almost buttery. If the loaf wasn’t consistently over-baked, turning the crust two shades darker than we’d like and transforming the heel-bite experience into a non-event, there’s a high probability that the St. Louis-born-bakery gone national would’ve placed in our top three.
