Bread overpowers other flavors, soaks up all moisture & dried out. Waste of other ingredients, no one tasted artichokes or goat cheese. Tried very buttery garlic croutons and much richer taste but still like eating dry bread. Will experiment with noodles barley rissoto and maybe bread crumbs instead or half the bread crumbs. Smoked salmon was voted way better & less salt taste.
