A toast to bread

March 8, 2008

Imagining a perfect Saturday, I am whisked away to a cafe in Amsterdam. It would be sunny (again, I’m imagining!) and I would sit at a little dinky table on cobblestones overlooking the bridges and canals in the heart of the city.  We would see trams go by, byciclists, and lazy boats floating along the canals – everyone is enjoying that rare day in Holland where it’s sunny, warm and just gorgeous.  In good company of course, we would be served freshly baked french bread right out of the oven with warm butter and plenty of Gouda. A side of coffee and some desert to finish, we would continue to wonder through the book and flower markets spread throughout the side streets and along boutiques and rare art stores. Maybe if the appetite so desires, I would stop for a late afternoon snack of poffertjes (mini Dutch pancakes) brushed with butter and a dusting of powdered sugar.  Mmmm…..  perfect!
