Companatico Bread

by | Feb 5, 2014 | Bakers, Bread, Sourdough

Bread blogger Barbara Elisi, a Roman baker living in Sweden, recently explored the meaning of companatico. From Latin "cum panis" (with bread) she explained that it comes from the same ethymology as compagno; friend. As in friend with whom to share bread – compagno or cum panis.

In keeping with that idea, I decided to give her formula that incorporated barley, spelt and wheat flours a go. She gave me some ideas of parameters and percents. With Breadstorm as my guide, I popped this formula out between shifts at work. Hectic baking! What came out of the oven was something I'd definitely share with a friend. Grazie Barbara!
