June 2 - "Class Field Trip"
Today we toured four different food establishments, two being artisanal food producers (smoked food and cheese). The top picture is of a traditional bakery shop...the two men are cousins and their fathers started the business in 1937. They make traditional white bread and we all felt very priveledged to be able to tour the facility. It is a dying industry with automation in bread baking taking over. These gentlemen make the bread by hand 6 days a week starting at 3:00 a.m. Now that's dedication!
