Eating at the source. . . . . . . Part II

Just have to tell you about the most fabulous 
baking company headquartered on the stunning Maine coast.

When Pigs Fly means "I doubt it's possible".
Go HERE to read, and enjoy pictures of the breads, 
and the story about former chef Ron Siegel, and his 
brother Andrew, and how this bakery grew from a tiny 
home kitchen business into what it is 
today. . . . . an awesome place making 
what has to be the most exciting array of delicious 
artisan breads I've ever seen - and tasted.

We bought a loaf of this fabulous savory bread - went 
perfectly with that Cabot cheese purchased the next 
day in Vermont.
 It was so hard to choose which breads to buy as we were 
going to be on the road for almost a week - this one above 
will be on my list next time.
But this one, oh my, after sampling - yes, you could sample 
any and all the 26 or so breads - was the most fabulous 
fruity, crusty topped bread I've yet to find anywhere.
Half this loaf remained to come home with us after spending 
as many nights in hotels as we did, and I'm finishing it up 
this morning toasted, delicious!

The SAD news, although there are six locations for When Pigs Fly
bakeries, they are all in New England. 
The GOOD news, you can buy this bread online (3 loaves minimum) 
and it will be shipped to your door. 
My tip would be forget the huge fee for overnight or 
even next day shipping, the lower priced options should be 
fine because the bread apparently has a long life.

To anyone up there in New England who enjoys this bread 
and is reading my post, perhaps you can tell us which 
are your favorite loaves. 
I'm green with envy if you are able to get to 
one of the When Pigs Fly bakeries whenever you want. . . 
and yes, I admit, I'm not only a cheese-aholic, I'm a 
bread-aholic too!

Meanwhile, I'm off to place an online order and I'll 
report back to you how well the bread ships, and tastes,
after its journey south.


  1. It looks wonderful! I will be interested to hear what you have to say after you receive the bread.

  2. Oh my goodness! I am not a cheeseaholic, but I am a breadaholic. These look good and have never seen the one with lemonade before.
    It does sound intriguing. Oh yummmmmmm!

  3. What can I say, except, "Yum!" It's a long way to go for a loaf of bread, though, and you're simply making me hungry!

  4. Yum, yum, yum! Bread gets a bad rap. But I love it! Especially a nice crusty bread with soup or toasted with a nice jam or preserved figs or zaatar & olive oil. That last one does sound very unique. Best wishes, Tammy

  5. Those various flavors sound delicious! I hadn't heard of this company, so thank you for the tip!

  6. Oh, my, these breads look positively wonderful, and yes, you are making me hungry also. I need to go to New England for many reasons, food being one of them! Thanks for all of your posts about your trip. It has been delightful and I have learned a lot. I am sorry to say that I have never been there.
