Franklin Park, IL - Casa Nostra Bakery, a locally-based, family-owned wholesale bakery, has launched a new artisan bread line, which includes a rustic sourdough product. Casa Nostra moved to Illinois from Italy in 1976. The bakery is an authentic source for some of the best Italian bread in the Chicagoland area.
The product originates from an old-family traditional recipe. It’s handmade with a 28-hour fermentation that delivers an open-cell structure with a slight fermentation tang.
You can find the owner, Mike Florio, in the back baking the bread still. He states: “The rustic sourdough ensures excellent flavor and a pronounced mouth-feel. Our products are very unique because they are all handmade, in the traditional style, which really delivers the customer a distinctive bite and chew.”
To check them out in person, they will be exhibiting at the National Restaurant Association show so be sure to visit their booth if you’re attending. You will surely be greeted by warm, crisp smelling Italian bread.
