Bakeries are full of wonderful things: smells, sweet possibilities, friendly bakers who sometimes wait on you. A lot of work has usually gone into the sometimes soft, crunchy, salty, icing-covered products for sale, and the purchases you make often result in satisfaction and happiness. Celebrate all this oven-baked artistry in the hour-long documentary from PBS producer Rick Sebak (A Hot Dog Special and A Ride Along the Lincoln Highway). Check out unusual offerings at Mahoroba Japanese Bakery in Sacramento, and marvel at the small pastry made at Sluy's Bakery in Poulsbo Washington; known as a Viking Cup, it's the perfect treat to take on the ferry to Seattle. Consider beautiful baguettes at Standard Baking Company in Portland, Maine, and sit with the morning regulars at Bernice's Bakery in Missoula, Montana. From a tiny workroom with a nearby wood-fired oven on Martha's Vineyard to a well-equipped bagel bakery in Juneau, Alaska, visit the people who own, work, shop, and sometimes linger in these special neighborhood spots. Also includes a 30-minute bonus extra - A Few Things I Wish We Had Time For This DVD features subtitles in English
