Saveur Includes Iggy's Among Its Picks of 20 Great American Bread Bakeries

A food and travel magazine has just come out with its picks for great bread bakeries in the United States, and a Cambridge bakery has made the list.

According to Saveur's website, Iggy's Bread of the World on Fawcett Street is one of 20 bread bakeries in America chosen, with the magazine stating that the husband-and-wife team behind the bakery "changed the Boston bread scene" when they first opened in Watertown in 1994. The article goes on to say that "their creations, from moist focaccia made from naturally leavened dough to hearty 7-Grain roll laced with wildflower honey, were revelations to locals raised on overly processed supermarket bread."

Other New England bakeries to make Saveur's list include Hungry Ghost Bread in Northampton, MA, Berkshire Mountain Bakery in Housatonic, MA, Seven Stars Bakery in Providence, RI, Standard Baking Company in Portland, ME, and Gerard's Breads of Tradition in Westford, VT.
