Bread and Nutella are the ideal combination - let's have a look at differences across Regions

Nutella had a number of submissions from different regions of how they eat Nutella for breakfast - in combination with their respective breads of the region. Fabulous combinations!!

Altamura Bread - the famous break from Puglia. Cited in Horace's Satires in 37 BC, it was defined by the Latin poet as "the best bread in the world". Its fame grew in the following centuries, so much so that in 1600 there were 26 bread-making plants active in Altamura alone. Altamura D.O.P. Bread is a protected bakery product made from a mixture of re-milled durum wheat semolina, sourdough or sourdough starter, sea salt, and water.

It is typical of the Teramo area, but there are numerous variations throughout the Abruzzo region which share the same type of dough but differ in size.

No one knows for sure the origins of the Mafalda bread from Sicily. Some say that the recipe dates back to the end of the 19th century, when a baker on the island decided to dedicate the name of the loaf to the daughter of King Vittorio Emanuele; others, however, maintain that it was imported by the Arab populations who traded with the region. In any case, sesame remains the particular note that accompanies the tasting and the ingredient that has made Mafalda one of the most loved breads by Sicilians.
