Sourdough bread is good for bruschetta. It uses wild yeasts that ferment the dough and give it that characteristic tang. I can highly recommend the sourdough made by Declan Ryan of Arbutus Bread. Declan was head chef of the Arbutus Lodge Hotel for many years. He received Ireland's first Michelin star in 1974. In 1999 though, he gave it up to start Arbutus Bread and now makes some of the best bread in the country. Declan learnt sourdough techniques from the very best artisan bakers in San Francisco and France. As well as the sourdoughs, he makes soda breads and buttery, flaky croissants.
