Italians have high standards for their bread. It's not uncommon for them to allow the yeast to fully rise over several hours, which leaves a thin crust. Italians place great importance on the size of their loaves of bread as each family member needs to get their fair share. Italians prefer their bread to have a moist and soft interior, which is perfect for absorbing olive oil, vinegar, tomatoes and other toppings.
While Rome may be Italy's political capital, Milan is the country's industrial and financial capital. It's also home to some of Italy's largest companies, including Alfo Romeo and Pirelli. Similar to New York, it's also a culinary hub, attracting some of the most talented chefs in Europe. The local Milanese are able to experience these innovative new chefs with their exotic flavors. But the more traditional Milanese cuisine is also remarkably gratifying and invites friends and family to gather around the table and spend some leisurely time together to enjoy delightful Italian comfort food.
Our Milan Bread Dipping Seasoning was inspired by the people of Milan who love their bread and their slow paced meals.
