Colomba Di Pasqua Easter Bread
The unique, dove-shaped sweet easter bread appears in Italy each year for Easter. Legend has it that the bread was created in Pavia, a small town near Milan in Lombardia, after the end of a great siege. The dove-shaped loaf represents the reuniting of the people of Pavia, and their efforts at rebuilding peace.
Our Colomba is made with a rich, brioche-like dough. It contains candied orange and is flavored with lemon and vanilla bean. Each loaf is baked with a topping of ground almonds, sugar, and egg white, which adds a bit of crunch, chewiness, and sweetness. It is the perfect bread for both breakfast and dessert! Available with the addition of chocolate as well.
When Sullivan Street Bakery opened in 1994, it immediately cultivated a loyal following due to their revolutionary with its no-work, no-knead baking methods. In 2015, owner Jim Lahey became the first ever winner of the James Beard Award for Outstanding Baker. Their breads have been lauded by Vogue, New York Times, Bon Appetit and so many more.
