Bread is a fan favourite over here at the Brantford Visitor & Tourism Centre! Garlic toast, cheesy bread, warm with butter, fresh dipped in olive oil and classic PB&J are just a few of the suggestions that swirled around in our group poll. There are just so many ways to enjoy bread!
Bread offers a variety that many other foods cannot, most likely due to the fact that bread making (when done well) is an art that has spanned the ages. In fact, nowadays, it is perhaps so common that it can often be overlooked as a quality addition to any meal or snack table. Whether you choose bread as a complimentary item to your main dish or a stand-alone treat, Brantford local can help you out.
