Red Wagon Bakery in Canaan NH
Rob Gurwitt’s excellent interview with Nellie Smith Kondi of Red Wagon Bakery in Canaan, New Hampshire reveals much about the baker herself . . .
“I like to eat complicated pastries,” she says, “but when it comes to being very scientific and careful with amounts and the chemistry of it, I’m like, No. I like a pie that looks a little nobbly and the crust looks homemade and it’s not perfect. I like making things pretty, but not like they look in a book.”

This is another in a series of interviews with local restaurant chefs/owners in which Daybreak’s Rob Gurwitt and I take turns reporting on what items on their own menus they particularly fancy. Look for my post next week here on Artful.
