I’ve often noted on these pages that our bakers don’t release an avalanche of new foods each season. Or each year. Or every other year. They’re deliberate and very, very picky. When there is something new it’s worth taking notice. This year brought a few innovations and I’ve put them together here in one box.
Well, I may be stretching it. One of these—the Craquelin—was new over a year ago. Like I said, it’s not often, so take notice.
The gift box includes three new baked goods, hot out of the oven: Pane Nero bread made with heirloom Tumminia wheat from Sicily, Craquelin
, the break-out hit bread that’s the sugar-and-Grand Marnier® national bread of Belgium, and Beigli
, the Hungarian sweet walnut roll.
Serves a dozen easily. Save parts for later—they all freeze great.
