Food lies at the heart of our bodies and our culture; it is there for celebrations and sustenance. NOMaste features a local fierce foodie each month, in four weekly segments. First, an interview, then a top 10 list, followed by a recipe to share, and finally a food review. This food corner will not just feature local chefs but also restaurateurs, buyers, suppliers — any woman involved in any aspect of the food chain, from farm to food truck. Join us each week as we get to know another Foodie in the city. Part I of this month’s series can be found here.

What better category to have the Sandwich Slinger put her 10 cents in but the sandwich staple — BREAD! Check out Amanda’s top 10 local bread picks below.

Lebanese Bakery Pita Bread via Yelp

Pete’s Lebanese Bakery: Pita Bread

Used at Amy’s Place and Amy’s Truck to wrap our sandwiches. Also can be used as the perfect vehicle for your favorite dips or get crazy and make a pizza with it as well.

BreadHive: Everything Bagel

I love it with chive cream cheese and lox! Also a turkey sammy is great on one of these.

Lexington Co-Op: Rosemary Loaf

Yummy just as it is, or maybe toasted with some salted butter. Also great sandwich bread.

Quaker Bonnet: English Muffin

Big enough for an egg sandwich, delicious enough by itself.

Mazurek’s Rye via Trip Advisor

Mazurek’s: NY Rye

Toast it and slap some salted butter on there. I love this bread for a grilled cheese or a melt of some sort. Patty, turkey, tuna, whatever floats your boat.

Five Points Bakery: Cinnamon Rolls

I don’t even know what to say about these, except they are the most delicious cinnamon rolls ever.
