When a new family moves in down the street, or when friends buy a new home, Ricardo and Brigitte wish them well by offering them a basket filled with three significant, and symbolic, gifts: bread (to ensure there’s always enough food in the house), wine (so that they’ll always be surrounded by friends) and salt (to cast bad spirits out), as per old European tradition. This bread, loaded with cheese and figs, is sweet and savoury and is so easy to make! What better way to welcome someone to the neighbourhood?

  • Vegetarian
  • Nut-free
  • Egg-free




Note from Ricardo

The microwave and oven are perfect places to let dough rise; place a cup of boiling water inside the apparatus to create a warm, humid environment.
