Zeppole Bread Zeppole Breads

Zeppole Ciabatta:  Our most popular bread, this long, flat loaf has a dimpled surface that has been lightly basted with olive oil and sprinkled with salt and rosemary for an enticing flavor and aroma. With its slightly chewy texture, it's perfect with soup, salad, pasta and meat dishes, or delicious dipped in olive oil and balsamic vinegar. It's an ideal bread to serve with a great wine and artisan cheese.

Village Loaf:  Approximately 14 inches square, the Village Loaf makes an impressive presentation when served to your family and guests. Basted with olive oil and dusted lightly with salt prior to baking, it has a light, open texture and delightful flavor. Cut horizontally, it is excellent for sandwiches and burgers. In fact, most of our award–winning Zeppole sandwiches are served on this bread. Cut in squares or strips, it's perfect for mopping up the juices from your favorite dishes. The Village Loaf can be purchased as a whole, half or quarter loaf.

Village Round: The same delicious dough as our popular Village Loaf, but shaped as a round loaf. Perfect sliced for sandwiches or toast, or as a table bread.

Pane di Como:  This bread reflects the Italian style of baking with its thin, crispy crust and soft, moist center. This is a delectable choice for European–style sandwiches and French toast.

Pane Francese:  A traditional French baguette with a wonderful wheat flavor, this loaf has a soft, light texture and crisp, crackly crust. Pane Francese is delicious sliced and served with cheese, or cut lengthwise for a traditional baguette sandwich. Available plain, with sesame seeds, poppy seeds or a mixture of both sprinkled on top prior to baking.

Pane Rustica:  A hearty Italian loaf made of mixed wheat, white and rye flours, Pane Rustica has a hearty texture and semi–thick crust. It's wonderful for toast or sandwiches.

Sourdough Round:  Leavened with a natural sourdough starter and a small amount of baker's yeast, it has a crispy crust and a distinctively tangy taste reminiscent of yogurt or buttermilk. It's a favorite for sandwiches, toast, with a meal or for snacking and makes an excellent bread bowl for dips, soups, chili and stew. Also available as a sliced Sandwich Loaf.

Sourdough Baguette:  The same flavorful dough used for the Sourdough Round is molded into a baguette shape prior to baking. This loaf is a delicious accompaniment to cheese and pate, served with meals or for making baguette sandwiches.

Sourdough Bâtard:  A shorter version of the popular baguette, it's our most traditional European–style bread. Leavened solely with a natural Sourdough starter, it goes through a long, cold fermentation to enhance its distinctive sour flavor. The crust is crunchy and slightly sweet. It's a tasty table bread, ideal for dipping and sandwiches.

Ossa Dei Morti ("Bones"):  Ossa Dei Morti means "Bones of the Dead," the nickname for this bread, which resembles a femur bone. "Bones" are made with the same dough as the Village Loaf, but they aren't based with olive oil so they have a crispier crust. The bread is airy, light, soft, chewy and slightly sweet, a wonderful accompaniment to any food. Cut horizontally, it's a great change of pace for burgers and sandwiches.

Rustic Wheat Sandwich Loaf:  Our Rustic Wheat Sandwich Loaf is a dense mixed-flour loaf containing organic whole wheat, unbleached wheat and rye. The Rustic Wheat (same dough as our Pane Rustica) is very popular with our European customers, who say it reminds them of bread from their native country. The Rustic Wheat is delicious for sandwiches, or toasted and served with butter and jam.

Jalapeño Ciabatta: Our new and very popular Jalapeño Ciabatta is made from the same dough as our Zeppole Ciabatta, but instead of olive oil, salt and rosemary, this loaf is topped with Cheddar and Jack cheeses, Ancho chili powder, seasonings and sliced jalapeño peppers to make a delicious loaf with just the right amount of zesty kick. We also make Jalapeño Sandwich Buns from the same dough and cheese mixture.

Challah:  This beautiful braided loaf, the traditional Sabbath bread of the Jewish faith, has become a mainstream bread. It's slightly sweet in flavor and is delicious with butter and preserves. It makes a delicious sandwich bread, and it's a favorite for French toast. Available only on Friday.

Boise Organic Baking Company

Traditional Ciabatta:  Loaves made of wetter doughs are called rustic breads, such as the Traditional Ciabatta. Certified Organic unbleached wheat flour is used for this rustic Italian Ciabatta. The texture is extremely open, which makes it ideal for tearing, and because the gluten is stretched to the maximum while baking, the bread develops an appealing toasty flavor. The Traditional Ciabatta is delicious with soups and tomato salads, and it makes excellent garlic bread.

Kalamata Olive Ciabatta:  The same delicious bread as the Traditional Ciabatta, except that Kalamata Olives are added to the dough prior to baking. It also makes a delectable garlic bread.

Wheat Levain:  Levain is bread made by the natural sourdough method, levain being the French word for sourdough. It is a dense bread made with Certified Organic whole wheat flour, which shows complex flavors and textures. The crust is thicker and chewier than other yeasted breads, and the sourdough flavor is milder than the American counterpart. Wheat Levain is excellent as toast and for sandwiches.
