French baker Eric Kayser, owner of the international string of Maison Kayser boulangeries, considers it his life's mission to bake good bread. At first that meant classics like baguettes and boules made from high-grade flours and natural leaven. But lately he's been delving into the world of ancient grains. His quinoa–whole wheat bread with raisins is a customer favorite. Filled with earthy red quinoa and flax seeds, it's pleasantly nutty; raisins and honey lend a slightly sweet finish. Too healthy for you? Just add butter and jam.
