2019 Bread Baker

Claire Kopp McWilliams of Ursa Bakery

Is it a surprise that the longtime baker for Vetri Cucina makes the best bread in the city? No. Is it worth the trip to the Fairmount or Ambler farmers’ markets for McWilliams’s cloudlike challah, focaccia, and rustic sourdough loaves? Absolutely.
