I'll show you mine if you show me yours

I was just wondering what kind of bread YOU eat daily. Tell me about it in detail!
Here is the kind we eat in Naples, Italy. It is called Casareccia and it is a salted sourdough bread with a hearty crust (in Northern Italy the bread is generally unsalted). Just about everyone has a favorite baker for this type of bread. Ours is right down the street and it is made in a modified home kitchen -small production really. I think in America you call this type of bread a farmer's country bread? Here is a picture (with the requisite homemade wine).

We make no-knead bread. It was made popular by the New York Times last year, but I found a recipe in my grandma's World War II victory garden cookbook.

The how-to on how to make it can be found here: http://red-icculus.com/?p=21
