Though breaking bread brings friends together, it tears bread apart. Savor disassembling loaves with today's Groupon: for $15, you get six loaves of artisan bread at Hearth Wood Fired Bread in Plymouth (up to a $36 value).
At Hearth Wood Fired Bread, 20-year bakery veteran Peter Nyberg employs 18th-century French techniques to craft six varieties of artisan bread from scratch, a practice that earned the store Best of the New 2010 recognition from Boston Globe Magazine. Each loaf embarks upon its picaresque journey to the breadbasket with all-natural ingredients, including the bakery's own levain starter and organic whole grains such as emmer, spelt, and Kamut-brand khorasan wheat. Without adding any chemical preservatives or helium, nimble hands knead each loaf of french country or raisin-pumpernickel rye before tossing it into the custom-built 60-ton Gueulard wood-fired brick oven. Slice up hearty hunks of baker's harvest to build a sound sandwich foundation, or place a loaf of fresh rustic rosemary in your windowsill and let the aromatic scent lure in passing Garfunkels. Since Hearth Wood Fired Bread provides breads to many top restaurants and hotels in Boston, taking home a loaf helps devourers create a fancy home-dining experience or finally bring the dream of napping on a bread pillow to reality.
