THE BREAD AND THE PASTRY PRODUCTS
Bread has been a staple in the diet of human beings since ancient times. Almost all people, regardless of their age or social status, consume bread of one kind or another. Given its composition and characteristics, and due to its manufacturing process, it is not a product that gives rise to many food toxin infections; but, due to its widespread consumption, it is important to control all the risks associated with its passage along the food chain. However, confectionery products, incorporating higher risk ingredients and involving a greater degree of processing, are more dangerous foods in relation to the transmission of food diseases.

The most common bread in Argentina is usually called “French”; Argentine white bread is made with refined wheat flour kneaded with water until it forms “buns” that are baked until they acquire a golden or yellowish “shell” color and the white and fluffy crumb.

Other forms of bread very common in the Argentine countryside are the so-called homemade bread; the most common is that the homemade bread is round and has relatively large “bubbles” because it has fewer additives (for example less beer yeast) and are cooked in semicircular homemade ovens molded in the shape of a dome using mud or adobes (these ovens are heated from below because the fire pit is located below the adobe dome).

Pebete is practically a variety of Viennese bread, the two main varieties of P.B.T. (initials of “toasted white bread”) or pebete are used either to make sandwiches of hot dog type (that is to say a global fast food instead of being a typical Argentine food) or to make diverse sandwiches (among them another global fast food very diffused in Argentina since the second half of the 1960s.

Pan lactal as its name indicates the “lactal bread” is a kind of bread kneaded with milk. The lactal bread is usually used cut into slices in the homes of large Argentine cities to make toast or to make improvised sandwiches with various ingredients (for example a sandwich of two slices of lactal bread with fresh cheese and cooked ham or if not raw ham, or a bread sandwich with two slices of lactal bread, among which are a feta of fresh cheese and a sweet potato feta).

Crumb bread: because of its spongy and tender texture, it is very similar to lactal bread, although it lasts are much larger and are sliced finer in rectangles; crumb bread is used, after being peeled, almost exclusively to be transformed into popular crumb sandwich tapas.

Black bread: in Argentina it is usually called “black bread” to all bread whose crumb is dark, brown, usually black bread is kneaded from barley flour (produced in the Pampas region); With the black bread tapas are sometimes made for the already mentioned crumb sandwiches, although their consumption is usually preferred by those Argentines who follow diets rich in fibers.

Many times the black bread of barley and/or rye is usually flavored with sesame seeds, cumin etc. Since the 1960s, black bread is relatively expensive in Argentina, since wheat flour and soybean production predominate. Argentina Bakery West Kendall Cutler Bay
However, in the 1950s, a large part of the Argentine middle and upper-class population complained about the government at the time, as the production of white bread was restricted due to a drought that reduced wheat yields and thus the production of bread. White, in those few years of the 1950s the “black bread” was cheaply expended although it did not enjoy mass acceptance but only in the immigrants and Argentines children of immigrants from Central and Eastern Europe.

DiCrespo was born from the need of two life friends… friends like mine. Friends like yours.
Friends who come from many different points, but that basically share the same nostalgia for those golden years of childhood and youth with family and friends in the “neighborhood. Argentina Bakery West Kendall Cutler Bay
DiCrespo wants to honor those years. The moments we played in the streets with our friends, and we got together on a Sunday around a large table with “family”.
For these friends, those moments were lived in the neighborhood of Villa Crespo, in Buenos Aires, a typical neighborhood of immigrants who came to work hard and prosper in the new world. Hence the “di or Crespo” DiCrespo. Argentina Bakery West Kendall Cutler Bay
Now, we are the immigrants in this land. However, the goal remains the same, rediscover our values received during those years, respect for the family and the value of friendship.
In these days and in this city, where everything seems to go so fast and we do not have time for anything, DiCrespo wants to propose that break, provide that space, the “corner bar” where you were with your friend or friends to speak for fifteen minutes or for hours about everything and nothing. Argentina Bakery West Kendall Cutler Bay
We want you to take the time to enjoy a coffee or eat an “empanada”, or a flavourful “asado”, drink a glass of wine, or sip on an icy Coca-Cola, all in a relaxed, cheerful atmosphere, where there is always a smile or a story to be told.
DiCrespo, your meeting place. Argentina Bakery West Kendall Cutler Bay
