We all take a loaf of bread for granted, but nearby in Ponte a Moriano di Sesto there is a wonderful artisan baker, Fratelli Paganelli Panificio, where every loaf is cooked with so much love and care in their olive wood-fired oven. See local chef Aurelio Barattini, an important person in Tuscany’s slow food movement, wonderful short video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wO073VYYMzY
Our bread in Britain or the US often comes in a plastic wrapper and has no flavour; we even discard the crust. This bread is delicious and is wonderful eaten plain or with a drizzle of olive oil (or even with the delicious artisan butters). Yummy!!
