Sorry for posting this, and my arms are up and about my head for the expected, and perhaps deserved, reaction. I believe the little things are important. Appearance is important. The right words are important.
Okay, here goes... When we refer to the person, we say artisan, which Webster defines as, "one that produces something (as cheese or wine) in limited quantities often using traditional methods". Therefore, when we refer to the bread we make, we say artisanal, meaning made by, not from artisans...
Sorry. Go ahead and let me have it. I have ducked and covered.
And while I am at it, why do we, at least we Americans, say 'go ahead' and do something, instead of just doing it without going ahead first?
Okay, I can hear the crickets against the still background of dead silence...
