'Fai la scarpetta' with Farretti


Farretti Bakery offers a genuine slice of Italy, hand-made with passion in the UK:
  • Ciabatta
  • Ciabatta with olives
  • Bread basket rolls
  • Panini rolls
  • Garlic and herb focaccia.
Our breads take two days to prepare and bake using a traditional Italian method - modified with the support of Dr Cavallari, the inventor of the modern ciabatta.

Our breads are highly versatile:
  • the plain ciabatta and all the rolls are great with sweet or savoury toppings
  • all our breads are highly absorbent and great with our flavoured dipping oils (see below), soups or stews - 'fai la scarpetta' with Farretti (wipe your plate clean!)
  • they all toast really well - crunchy on the outside and soft inside
  • they freeze well and can be eaten from frozen after 10 minutes in the oven
  • our breads naturally have a soft crust but if you prefer a crusty bread, just pop it in the oven for a few minutes
  • they cut very easily and cleanly making them perfect for sandwiches whether you cut our bread horizontally or vertically
  • they are soft yet chewy.
Above all our bread is tasty and we think that once you've tried Farretti products you'll be back to buy more.

To complement our bread we produce a range of dipping oils:
  • Italian Herbs (great basil flavour)
  • Balsamic Vinegar and olive oil
  • Cracked Black Pepper
  • Ramiro Peppers
And to finish your meal in true Italian style why not try our Cantucci biscuits with a glass of Vin Santo.
