Know Your Bread: Fuscaldese


The Fuscaldese is one of a pair of loaves that is made with predominantly Durum Flour. Like the Pane Italiano it is made using a overnight ferment made with dry yeast to enhance the flavor of an already delicious loaf. Durum is another form of wheat that is popular in Italy for use in pasta production, and we like it because it brings out some of the tradition at Blue Oven. With Italian baking and food underlying the history and creation of Blue Oven the Fuscaldese and Pane Italiano hold a special place on our bread list. The Fuscaldese also get the added benefit of the sesame seeds added after the loaf is shaped. Baked to perfection the Fuscaldese is a great bread for sandwiches, a dipping vehicle for red sauces of all kinds and because it’s a non-sourdough it’s a fan favorite for a lot of folks looking for a white bread with a bang. You can find the Fuscaldese at most of your farmers’ markets throughout the week. Check out where on our schedule below!
