Baker D. Chirico

When made simply using untainted ingredients, the earthy hues of a loaf of sourdough serve as a reminder of the importance of preparing wholesome ingredients with respect. In the absence of distracting packaging and a busy fit-out, Baker D. Chirico in Melbourne strips the process of selling bread back to basics. Fresh loaves of bread cool on undulating wooden shelves of varying sizes, designed to accommodate everything from baguettes to large pagnotta, while the centre counter doubles as a large chopping board where bread can be sliced and wrapped.
