There’s a new bakery in Montreal that has to be The Best one I’ve ever found. Pains me to say this but they make amazingly wonderful bread. Not only good in the purist sense (like their sourdough) but their imagination. They have White Chocolate Rolls that look like wee mushrooms – they take but two bites to finish. There is Spelt, Sunflower Seed and Tamari bread and there is this incredible bun-bread that is a rough-hewn sourdough (sort of) with chunks of sharp orange Cheddar cheese and hunks of dried or string figs. I am not a fan of dried figs but in this bread, the figs melt into puddles of caramel goodness. You are left with this rustic bread that you tear apart (and it’s even better on the second day) and out explodes splatters of melted cheddar and softened sweet figs. This is not a bun recipe: this is a celeberation. And best yet? Guillaume no longer uses their original recipe which was incredible. But that is my prototype and inspiration. So even if you wanted to buy what I bought- it doesn't exist anymore. Fortunately, this recipe does.
