Best Bread Houston 2007 - Central Market
Duomo means dome in Italian, as in the top of a cathedral. It is also the name of a loaf of bread and, as its name suggests, it is big and round. It is also so crusty that it hurts the inside of your mouth when you bite into it. It's not soft and squishy or limp and lifeless like some other bread — it's what real bread is supposed to be. The inside is full of air pockets, and it has enough salt in it to be noticed. It makes the best sandwich bread and terrific toast. Tear off a hunk and have it with a piece of cheese. Smear it with butter and enjoy its simple pleasures; however, watch it really shine as a panino, coated with olive oil and grilled in a toaster oven (a George Foreman grill also works great).
