Try. Fail. Try again. Fail better. This was the mantra Arturo Enciso when approaching bread—and his undeterred ambition has made him and Gusto Bread one of the most respected bakeries in the city. Now moving into a full brick-and-mortar—*whisper* we know the location!—Arturo and his partner Ana are ready to take Gusto to the next level. Join Brian Addison and Sarah Bennett on this wonderfully carb-y journey with two of Long Beach’s most beloved food makers.
