The bread basket at Cafe Boulud included a pumpkin seed bread that I thought was MAGNIFICENT. My vote is for pumpkin seeds! (It was a sourdough bread btw.)

Sinclair,

I am planning on dropping the corm bread in place of another sweet product, as well I may do pretzel rolls with kosher salt.

Alas. It appears popovers are not to be.

Another idea then. When I dined at La Ferme de mon Pere, Marc Veyrat paired the breads with the courses. I don't remember the details other than a saffron based bread with the fish courses.

Ran the bread sticks and pumpkin biscuits (had some canned pumpkin, I didnt want to see it stay on the shelf for a year) I will switch to sweet potato, then yukon gold. The reception was great. The customers loved them. We are planning a honey mustard butter.

Ran the pretzels, warm (shaped in stick form) with a whippe dbutter made with honey and whole grain mustard. A customer threatened the waitress not to take the bread basket away and then begged for more pretzels. The simplest things can make people happy.
