Couple years ago, I got a behind the scenes tour of Roberta’s (one of my favorite restaurants to dine at) and I got to see their new homemade bread oven that was built inside a freight container. I knew then that I wanted to go back and see the oven in action. So finally after 2 years I got the chance.
I didn’t get to meet Melissa Weller (head bread maker/genius at Roberta’s) till in April of this year at the New Amsterdam Market but I have met her bread last year when I got a taste from Anarchy in a Jar (Laena uses Melissa’s bread for people to try her jam on) and after buying a loaf at The Brooklyn Kitchen.
Thanks again to Melissa Weller for letting me take photos in the kitchen at Roberta’s and check out the slideshow for more photos.
