Bread with chopped flitch of bacon



1000 MIN.


Bread is like a living creature: it is necessary to communicate with it, to say: "Have you already fermented, are you ready to go to the oven?" Bread is one of the most expensive products of culinary heritage, requiring a lot of attentive work. Bread flavoured with cracklings was baked by women of Lithuania Minor. In other regions, the bread with cracklings filling was often baked from the grated dough - a small round loaf for children.
