Often, it is best to follow your nose. Especially, when it comes to bread.
Crustum, a gloriously modern artisan bakery in Sevilla, is the kind of spot that hardly makes a travel guide but never fails to disappoint locals. The merchandising is abundant enough to offset the stark interior, with layers upon layers of freshly stacked items "that smell like grandmothers". Proof that artisan and fermented breads – with thick crusts and open cell structures like those found at Tartine Bakery – continue the global to trend upward.
In addition to in-house baking at retail, the concept offers craftsman workshops to encourage residents of all skill levels to learn how to bake their own bread.
We love how Crustum's approaching traditional Spanish breads with an "Old World" appeal while gathering community around education.
