Italian Bread

An Italian table is not dressed without bread. Renaissance paintings depict tables adorned with baskets of freshly baked bread, and this appealing image is just as current today. Each region of Italy has its own distinctive style of cooking and breadmaking. The food of northern Italy is very rich, and its ingredients reflect the historical wealth of this area. Delicate, light breads are made here. Southern Italian food is the food of a humbler people, and a luscious bread filled with cheese and vegetables serves as a meal in itself.


Stromboli

This southern Italian bread is stuffed with mozzarella, fresh herbs, and shallots. During baking, the generous filling erupts out of the indentations made in the bread’s crust. Hence it is named after the volcanic island off the coast of Sicily. Recipe Stromboli
