It's Trendy to be Alternative
"Don Guerra’s passion for baking and his commitment to community is showcased in the bread baked at Barrio Bread, Tucson, Arizona. Local-grown and milled grains are a pillar of his business. This includes the use of alternative flours sourced from some unexpected places.
