The Ultimate Daily Bread
Crooked Tree Breadworks opened its doors for business in 1996. At that time the culinary landscape of the Little Traverse Bay region looked quite different. It was hard to find a loaf of bread with a good crust, farmers markets were very few and far between, and iceburg lettuce still dominated restaurant salad menus. On most bar taps it was possible to choose from among 10 varieties of pale, yellow American style lager, but you were pretty lucky if you found anything resembling Ale on tap.
