Remembering Gallimaufry, the Providence bread and food shop, with recipes

Want to make a French bread worthy of what people remember from Gallimaufry and baker Sarah Carlson? She added mashed potatoes.

Gallimaufry To Go was a gourmet take-out food store near Davol Square. The shop, which had several owners, also did a lot of catering for high profile, charity events.

The baker was Sarah Carlson. It was said her breads were so flavorful that one could make a meal of them alone.

The last reference in The Journal archives refers to it moving to larger quarters at 143 Point St. in 1999.

A reader reached out to me during the early days of the coronavirus pandemic, looking for some of their recipes. I wasn’t shocked to find them. The Journal has always covered food as other newspapers cover politics or sports.

I had hoped to find some photos to run with the recipes but that has proved elusive.
