looking for great bread in Hampton Roads

Hey all,

The title says it all. Where do foodies go for really great bread in the virginia beach/norfolk area? Please don't tell me Panera, their bread is just awful.
Thanks,
Scott

In Norfolk for 1 night - need kid friendly place

I really like Kelly's for a good burger. It is a local chain, that makes the best burgers. Where in the outer banks are you staying?

Howdy,

I have not been to the Redstar yet so I cannot comment on that. The taphouse has decent food and an awesome beer selection, but can get very crowded esp. on weekend and might not be appropiate for kids. Love Conklins, eat there frequently, make sure to try the pork shank and homemade potato chips. No frill is good too, get the chicken sandwich. Make sure to stop at the weeping radish brewery and farm in Harbinger, NC great beer and meat. ( it's on your way to the OBX)

Red Chilis anywhere in Hampton Roads?

This is the answer I recieved when I sent a query to the Jamie Oliver web site:
Hi Scott

Thank you for your email.

Jamie doesn't specify which chillies to use as he likes to leave it open to the individual's personal taste. Some people are very sensitive to chilli and others are real 'heat fiends' and so by specifying a type of chilli Jamie would only be satisfying a much smaller market.

I hope this explains things. We appreciate your interest!

Kind regards

What is your useless kitchen gadget?

A hands free pot stirrer. Its a motor with legs that sits on top of a pot and rotates a beater blade condinously. I bought it for my mom several years ago, she used it once and "regifted" it. I have had it for a couple of years now used it once to stir a cream soup that still burned. I think it is my sisters turn this year....
