Carasau bread in packs of 900 grams
Fressa bread, better known as carasau bread, has always been the typical bread of Ovodda, characterized by a thin and crunchy sheet, the result of a slow-fire roasting that enhances its flavor and guarantees a long shelf life.
Precisely for this characteristic it has always accompanied the life of the shepherds, who took it with them during long periods of transhumance, accompanying its consumption with cured meats and cheeses.
Prepared already in ancient times, during the bread-making ritual the women kneaded before dawn, rolling the dough by hand and baking it with fragrant wood from our woods, to achieve the typical cut of the puff pastry in two parts.
A food which has now become part of the island's gastronomy, as an accompaniment to dishes or as the protagonist of historical recipes, pane fressa is still produced today in compliance with the Ovoddese tradition, of which the Pane Fressa bakery is the keeper.
