The Breadfarm and Pan d’Oro


My friends EE and BR were telling me about a great bakery they stumbled upon outside of Bellingham – actually in Bow, if you happen to know where that is.  The bakery is the Breadfarm and after taking a look at their site I knew it would be a place I’d want to check out.  Well, I hadn’t had a chance to do that yet but in the meantime EE and BR brought me a gorgeous loaf of Pan d’Oro from the bakery! 
Pan d’Oro is a special Italian bread made during the holidays.  It’s baked in a star-shaped mold and is meant to resemble a Christmas tree.  You slice it cross-wise so that the slices are star shaped.  This is a rich, eggy and slightly sweet bread.  It is delicious just sliced and eaten!  But it is often used more as a dessert – topped with fruit and whipped cream or creme fraiche or marscapone or drizzled with chocolate – you get the idea. 
But I’ve been enjoying my loaf just plain.  Perfect for breakfast with a cup of tea, or as a little afternoon treat.  I may try topping it with preserves of some sort.  I think apricot – golden jam on golden bread!  What could be better?
