Michele Romano's Italian bread recipes makes even the most disciplined
If you have a bread maker, you will be able to explore several possibilities. Although, I know my parents did not have one, (nor did their forefathers) which leads me to say that there is still many Italian bread recipes that are achievable without one! Did you know that the ancient Romans were the first to actually produce flour for bread making in their oven thousands of years ago. Italians have a particularly high standard for their bread. When baking bread they are known to allow the yeast to work for several hours making the bread rise to it's fullest giving the bread a thin crust and moist interior. The hot fresh bread soaks up olive oil, vinegar, delicious sauces and toppings of all sorts.
It is a must to have at least one of these savory bread recipes to go along side of an antipasto platter. I always try to use organic unbleached flours and as natural ingredients as possible.
Note: We have to be aware that they are genetically modifying wheat now that they are calling super-crops and it is my belief that many people's bodies have a hard time digesting GMO'd foods. This is another reason so many people are on gluten free diets these days. I will be adding a section in a future book that will be gluten free friendly.
