Our Walnut/Raisin and Kalamata Olive breads are two examples of our beautiful composite loaves. These breads are made using our exclusive pugliese dough, with walnuts & raisins, or kalamata olives being incorporated by hand into the loaves.
For the Walnut/Raisin, we source premium quality domestic walnuts and plump raisins. These ingredients are hand-folded into the dough, which is then given a slow rise under refrigeration.
The superb flavor of our slow-rise pugliese dough is perfectly complemented by the walnuts and sweetness of the raisins.
Our Kalamata Olive loaves are generously studded with excellent quality imported Kalamata olives from our friends at Gallucci’s, Cleveland’s finest purveyor of Italian specialty food and drink. The salty tang of the olives really stands in the mellow flavor of the pugliese dough.
- Offered as a 2# batard, 18oz baguette, 1# loaf, mini loaf and 2oz rolls
