Puglia is becoming more and more famous around the world for the Altamura bread. This bread has been the first, in the bakery category, to receive the PDO seal (Denomination of Protected Origin) in Europe. The PDO recognition is equivalent to the DOC one for wines.
This bread has a typical shape, similar to a hat and a unique yellow color. The crust is very crunchy, the breadcrumb is very soft and the bread can last for many days!
Its production has to follow a specific procedure: it can be made with the durum wheat semolina varieties: “Appulo”, “Arcangelo” which are produced in the Alta Murgia area, in Puglia.
