      Beyond Bread: The Blue Ribbon Bakery Brick Oven Game Dinner

      In our last issue we wrote about the 1860 brick oven, shown left, the brothers Bromberg found below the Downing Street property that became their Blue Ribbon bakery back in 1994. Until they spotted the corroded door to the 140-year-old wood-burning beast, they’d planned to open a coffeeshop. Now it’s not their cappuccinos but their crusty loaves that are well known–thanks to the oven’s 700-degree temps–but next month Blue Ribbon plans to crisp something else in the oven for a change: that being prime meats.
