Baking supply store in Rome or Naples?

Recommended Posts

Hi

I will be in Italy in a few weeks - Roma and Naples.

I am an avid bread baker and I was hoping to find a place in either of these two cities which would have the following items.

One is a stamp to make rosetta rolls, also called michetta or sometimes bigne I think. They are nowhere to be found in the US.

The other item is a pandoro mold, the real authentic ones are only made in Italy with tall sides. The ones in the US are not true pandoro molds and are pretty much portugese manufactured star shaped bread molds.

If someone can steer me toward a place that may have these items - I would be very grateful. If there is a website to preuse before my trip - even better! If its in Italian, that is not a problem!

Thanks for any help I can get!!

I have forwarded you request to a Baker in Rome. Hopefully he will let me know soon.

I know an artisan in Naples that produces metal tools for patisseries but I am not sure he does rosetta o pandoro stamps.

My rosetta stamps is in plastic and was sent to me by a friend in Sicily.

Ciao

Thanks for the reply and ANY help is greatly appreciated. It appears from your links that you are what I call a "dough-nut" as well. I hope your baking contacts can come to the rescue. I suspect in Italy it is not so hard to find these things and I would love to bring them home with me!

You would think that, with the number of bakers in the US, finding a rosetta stamp or real pandoro mold would not be impossible - huh? I have looked for years.

thanks again. I will keep my fingers crossed.

Ciao

Just bring the keywords with you (recipiente angolare per il pandoro

Stampo per pane rosetta)

- life is a hell of a lot easier if you know how to tell people what you want!

perhaps a picture would be helpful as well

Although rosettas everywhere, no one makes em at home I bet! No luck. I even went to the back of a bakery and they said they could order one for me but it would have been to late. He told me to check the web but I have not come across one that ships overseas. Pandoro pans are more available at natale I hear from the locals.

If any brave soul finds a website that ships rosetta stamps to US, I would be very very grateful.

Thanks for the help.

when you'll be in Rome, if you go to San Pietro, visit this shop: Peroni, in Piazza Dell'Unità, 29 (closed on saturday afternoon and on sunday)

http://www.peronisnc.it/

the map, just because it's difficult to find it, Piazza dell'unità is a market and the Peroni's shop is an "underground" shop

- http://www.peronisnc.it/contatti.asp -

there is everything you need (maybe the stampo per rosetta no...), it's dangerous because everytime i go there i want buy everything :biggrin::biggrin:

Another very good shop is near Basilica di San Giovanni in Laterano:

Tervi (probably even better than Peroni)

http://www.tervi.it/

via della ferratella in laterano 1

When you are in Rome, go to a newspaper kiosk and ask for the Rome AZ (Azeta di Roma), the best rome's street guide, and if you need an internet point go to Easy Internet Cafe the cheapest in Rome (maybe now they'll ask for your ID card because the new antiterrorist law, but I'm not sure)

http://www.easyinternetcafe.com/

Via Barberini 2, just off Piazza Barberini. It is located downtown, on the main bus lines, within walking distance from Piazza di Spagna (Spanish Steps).

Evan,

I know this is a very old post, but I was wondering if you had a recipe for pane rosetta. I was fortunate to receive a stamp as a gift from a friend traveling in Germany, so now I'm searching for a recipe. I'd like to make the Roman style, crispy and airy.

      I'll be in Naples for a few days next month and I wanted to try something traditional, and my friend recommended trying parmigiana. She said she loved it, but the problem is that she ate it at her Italian friend's house, and I won't be able to have that exact parmigiana. So, I did some research online and found a few restaurants that have good ratings and are serving allegedly great eggplant casserole. This place is 4 stars rated, but people seem not to agree whether the parmigiana is good or not.... On the other hand, this place has a great rating, appears when searching for the parmigiana, but nobody seems to write about it in their reviews. Finally, this one is said to have the best parmigiana in Naples (or in the world, for that matter), and I wanted to know if anyone had the so-called world's best?
      I would really appreciate if you could help me make the decision. Looking forward to your advice!

      I recently took a trip to Northern Italy, and was delighted to find that the cappuccino everywhere was just wonderful, without exception. Smooth, flavorful, aromatic perfect crema, strong but not too strong.
      Aside from the obvious answer (duh, Italians created cappuccino ), what makes Italian capp so fantastic, and how do I duplicate the effect here?
      I'm wondering if it's the water, the way the coffee is ground or stored, the machines used....I'm baffled.
      Also noticed that the serving size tended to be smaller than what I'm used to -- i.e. a small teacupful vs. a brimming mug or Starbucks supersize. Not sure why that is either.
      Grazie mille for any insight on this!

      My article was published (my first one!)! Hooray! And I do have some Florentine restaurant recommendations including the new Osteria del Pavone which is amazing--lampredotto ravioli is now a thing and it must be tried.
