Eating is one of the few things we do that involves all five of our senses all at once. It is a necessity. It should a pleasure. It has become fraught with dangers: guilt, politics, greed, ignorance, unpronounceable chemicals, and industrial processing to name just a few.

Here at Virtuous Bread we believe in food that is well grown, well prepared, and consumed with minimal packaging and maximum pleasure. The recipes and food-related recommendations you find here are a bit of a random walk through a peripatetic life of shopping, cooking, and eating.
