The Bread of Montegemoli ….”comes” from Peccioli

Image

…One of the most important product of our area is..the Bread of Montegemoli, a typical homemade bread  baked for the first time in 1986 in Montegemoli … small but charming medieval village in the heart of Tuscany, not far from Volterra.

This is a peasant-made ​​bread,completely handmade, that preserves the principles and features of good bread of the Tuscan countryside of the twentieth century 

And guess what … : .. this bread flour is produced exclusively from the ancient  Artisan Mill Messerini, in operation since 1890 in Fabbrica, near Peccioli  !

Peccioli, the Christmas Fairyland in Valdera

fiabesque4 ” Once upon a time, there was a castle perched on the Pine Tree hilltop.

On top of the castle’s  tower there was a beautiful natural garden, the playground of rare and colorful butterflies invading the castle every spring time. The narrow winding roads scented of freshly baked bread and sweet pastry and the bell tower stroke the hours of peaceful and joyful days.

The castle was inhabited by nice people living in little houses made of bricks and ceramics and terracotta floor.

The children living there were all well-behaved, educated and good at school…but one day something very strange happened!

The sun did not rise, the bell tower stopped, all the little houses were dimly lit with shades of blue, yellow and pink and all the inhabitans found themselves  turned into elfs and fairies…”
