I’ve been reading Suosso’s Lane by Robert Knox
and this is Bob
The book is about Bartolomeo Vanzetti and some about Nicola Sacco (as in Sacco and Vanzetti – ring any bells?)
Suosso’s Lane is a real street in North Plymouth and Bartolomeo Vanzetti lived there.
But all this North Plymouth talk has gotten people nostalgic for foods that they remember from North Plymouth.
Foods like Horn Bread
This is Italian Horn Bread:
The only recipe I could find for this horn bread is not quite right.In one part, because it was written by someone who is not a recipe writer; but also because this was a baker’s bread and that makes it difficult to copy in a home kitchen. It’s not the talent of the baker – it’s the equipment and the scale.
Here’s a link to The Fresh Loaf discussion of Horn Bread – check out the star bread, too.
Here’s a link to a North Plymouth Horn Bread story from several years ago.
Check Robert Knox blog and read Suosso’s Lane.
And if you have a source for homemade horn bread, please share!
