Ferrarese bread PGI
The typical bread of Ferrara has recently received from the EU the I.G.P mark (Protected Geographical Identification).
The famous "coppia", in dialect "ciupeta", of Ferrara has a central body called knot or ribbon with two twisted pointed breadsticks attached. Either crusty or soft, with or without olive oil, the bread of Ferrara is a great pride for Italian gastronomy. Its secret is to be found in the quality of the water and the ingredients, as well as the air humidity, the manufacturing and leavening method and the correct temperature of the oven.
