We're excited to offer this delicious bread from the ovens of a bakery in Lugo, Galicia. Bollas Gallegas are rustic round loaves of white bread. With its crackly thin crust and sweet, airy interior, it is one of Galicia's unsung treasures.
Bolla Gallega is easy to prepare; in just a few minutes, the mouthwatering aroma of freshly baked bread will fill your home. Place this partially baked bread in an oven that is preheated to 375 degrees, and bake for about 10 minutes. It has an airy interior full of holes surrounded by a thin, crisp crust. Perfect to eat anytime of day, this round loaf is perfect at dinner, for sandwiches, or with Seville orange marmalade at breakfast.
Those of you who have visited Santiago de Compostela will remember eating the extraordinary bread of Galicia. For years we've searched for a Galician bread to carry at La Tienda and we've finally found it!
The medieval pilgrimage city of Santiago de Compostela is inspiring in its spirituality and architecture, but is also memorable for its abundance of fresh seafood and vegetables native to the region. You can feast on sizzling platters of locally grown padrón peppers, bubbling cazuelas of Coquille San Jacques from freshly harvested scallops, and pulpo simmering in oil, garlic and smoked paprika. All of these extraordinary dishes are accompanied by bread that is legendary throughout Spain.
