Ode To Epi

Stuffed rolls, baguettes, batards
Boules, plaits, and pull-aparts
Focaccia, bagels, ciabatti
But the bread of my dreams is always epi
Perfect for soup
Perfect for dipping
Perfect with any dish
The ideal balance of crust to crumb
The ideal bread for everyone
Whether it’s a lumpi, a fati or an epi
Whether it’s dipped, or torn, or sliced
Epi, epi, my magnificent epi
Perfect in every way

  1. Oh the magnificent epi!!! So deserving of such high regard. I will forever be indebted to the Oven Mistress for introducing me to what may just be … bread perfection.
