Original Recipes from Culture and History
Bread is one of the most widespread and consumed foods, in Italy as in the world, but it is also one of the foods of which there are more variations, in the ingredients as in their quantity, from the preparation to the form. From the basic ingredients – made of flour, water, salt and yeast (but some of them can be replaced with others) – we move on to a series of combinations, possibilities for enrichment and almost infinite processing times and largely linked to resources and traditions of the places where it is prepared and spread from there.
Type of Bread
Depending on the ingredients used in its preparation, the bread commonly found on the market is divided into two types:
is what is obtained with a leavened dough based on wheat flour, yeast, water and salt (the latter is not used in some doughs such as that for “Tuscan” bread or, indeed, “without salt”).
The special bread is the one that is obtained through a great variety of doughs that add or replace other ingredients such as oil, butter, malt, sugar, milk or fruit, or mixing with flour other wheat flour such as barley, rye, corn, soy or rice, or others.
The common bread It is above all the quality of the flour that makes the difference between the common and the special bread. In common bread, the flour must necessarily be of wheat, even if soft, white or whole wheat.
Depending on whether the flour is type 00, 0, 1, 2 or whole meal, the bread will assume the relative definition (if the whole wheat flour has been used and cereals as the bran, the bread will be called “integral”)., in which the bread is type 1 or type 2, it will also be called “homemade” or “rustic.”
The types of bread spread in Italian regions and places are hundreds, the result of different customs and traditions, sometimes of very ancient origin.
To the so-called “regional breads” that interpret the basic recipe of bread in many different ways (and in some cases are part of the common bread type), are added types of bread such as milk, for which the latter replaces the water (with the addition of butter and sugar), potato bread (a variable amount of boiled potatoes is mixed with wheat flour) or sweet bread, which add to the butter and sugar other ingredients, usually flavoring.
