This New Year's Eve, as with many New Year's Eves past, I spent several days with my best friend's family in Sea Ranch, about 150 miles north of San Francisco. A few days ago, I hopped in my Zip Car and headed out on the windy road that would take me to this pristine area of California with its fantastic views and relaxing atmosphere.
One of the highlights of the drive is a stop in Freestone -- a teeny tiny town west of Sebastopol -- to join the throngs of customers at Wild Flour Bakery. Wild Flour is popular among food lovers throughout the area for its delicious organic savory and sweet breads.
Wild Flour is open Friday through Monday each week, and they bake 900 loaves of bread a day that are sold only from their bakery.
