  • About

Many flavourful Italian and other European breads are made from white flour that doesn’t have all the bran removed, resulting in a slightly darker crumb after baking. The heavy coating of sesame seeds on this bread recalls the bread from the Italian bakeries of my childhood. A mix of white and black sesame seeds, all poppy seeds, or no seeds at all would be equally good with this bread.
