|Going Out: A Visit to Della Fattoria in Petaluma|I owe a major carb binge to Chef Adam Mali.
When I was dining at his restaurant, Brasserie S&P in the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in San Francisco, I'd occasionally come up for air from devouring his dishes only to find myself drawn completely and helplessly to the bread.
Smoky, with a hefty dark crust and a chewy interior full of delightful air holes and developed fermented flavor, I couldn't stop eating slice after slice.
Of course, I had to ask him where it came from.
When he told me it was baked in wood-fired ovens at Della Fattoria in Petaluma, I knew I had to stop in the next time I was in the vicinity.
So, I did.
