    Default Italian Bread

    Where can I find good Italian bread in the Sosua area, or should I keep dreaming?

    You can try calling Nello,s in santo domingo. they are great italian butchers and may be able to help you. Sometimes i go to Carrefour and get their baguettes which are the closest i have found to a decent italian hero bread.

    There is a very good German bakery a block or two away from Hotel D'Piero (not far from Supermercado Zoilo) which (I know you want Italiano) has some really good breads and cakes. I'd try that one to see if it fits the bill.

    sugar is cheap, that is why it is overloaded into bread in the DR. i have seen beautiful loaves of bread and after one bite i need to go to the dentist. if it is cheap, it is hard for a dominican baker to not add extra, "they like it sweet" he wil say. it is sad but i know of some poor dominican children that get a lot of their daily nutrition from bread an a peice of cheese, an egg, maybe a bolied platano, water, no sugary drinks, so the bread fills the bill for the days sugar quota, and if it don't taste sweet it's bad bread. sorry, health nuts out there, kids need sugar, instant food, goes right to the blood stream and feeds muscles.............it's hard for a dominican baker to get away from sugar.......give a good sourdough to your average dominican and he will say this bread is broken..............

    With that being said, are there any besides the ones mentioned above that break the 'sugar habit'? Also if anyone knows around central DR like Bonao?
