Panificio (bakeries)

The traditional bread of the area is called Pagnotta and is a rustic bread made without salt and baked in a wood fired oven. It is a very basic bread and not very tasty but it is the best for bruschetta (toasted slices of bread on a BBQ rubbed with garlic, sprinkled with salt and drizzled with good local olive oil). Salt was a luxury in years gone by and therefore not used as liberally in cooking but rather to preserve cured meats. This explains why the area is rich in flavorful cured meats. The closest paneficio is near the village of Collepepe in the shopping center of Due Torri.
