Before I worked as an editor and writer, I worked as a baker, so I have a deep reverence for the effort that goes into making a perfect loaf. I was excited and privileged to review the new House of Bread in Wasilla several weeks ago for last weekend's edition of the Anchorage Daily News; I was interested to see what a bakery that tries to make pastries and baked goods healthier has to offer the Anchorage community.
Usually when a restaurant tries to sell me on food because of its nutritional value, my eyes glaze over and I stop listening. I like healthy food, but I don't eat because of nutritional and caloric values. Like other foodies, I'm driven by taste above all else.
So it was with mixed feelings that I approached House of Bread in Wasilla. Its website lists nutritional information for its breads, touting them as low-fat and healthier than traditional bakeries. I worried that these would taste healthy, not good.
However my worries were unfounded. House of Bread's healthier food is good -- really good.
