Ever had enough people compliment your baking skills to make you consider starting your own bakery? Michelle Bamberger of Ithaca did, and we're visiting her Little Banneton bread bakery to find out how she makes fresh artisan loaves using all-natural, organic ingredients.
Now that the Ithaca Farmers Market is open for the year, we've got updates from some of your favorite vendors about what's new for Spring. Plus, our restaurant review for this episode takes us to Cayuga Heights for lunch at the Heights Cafe & Grill.
We'd love to hear from you! Leave a comment on the blog, call our voicemail line anytime at 607-215-4392, or send an email to: feedback at eatingithaca dot com. Remember to follow us on Twitter for continuing updates throughout the week!
