This week on Wisconsin Foodie, we break bread with Amaranth Bakery and Madison Sourdough Company. Amaranth Bakery is located in the west side of Milwaukee, WI, an area generally devoid of hearty, nutritious places to eat. David Boucher and Stephanie Shipley decided to change that by renovating a run down tavern into a bakery and cafe. Since then, Amaranth Bakery has become a space for the neighborhood to congregate and talk with the community over a cup of coffee and a delicious piece of bread.

Then we rise up well before dawn to see how Madison Sourdough Company starts their day. Head baker and co-owner Andrew Hutchison shows us around and gives some pointers on shaping dough. One of the breads Madison Sourdough has become most well-known for is their Miche. Andrew guides us through the process of making their miche and gives us a tour of their cafe area, their new patisserie, and their still under construction mill. A true craftsman, Andrew wants as much control as possible over his ingredients as well as every part that goes into his breads right up to when it hits your plate.
