Join us for a tour of the sweet bread of Mexico, Latin and South America as we take a new pastry each week to discuss and share history, our favorites, and other fun facts! Call store for availability.
Pan ranchero (with nuts) is translated literally as “country bread.” This bread originated on farms and in rural areas in times where extra ingredients and/or money were scarce. As people migrated and cities grew, it began to be eaten during the Christian season of Lent and times of fasting because of its simplicity.
But wait! This bread has nuts and brown sugar! Yes, indeed, we have spiced the typical pan ranchero bread up with some delicious extras for you. But as you savor the filling or come to a bite that is just the bread alone, close your eyes for a moment and enjoy the peace of the country – maybe a rocking chair on a big porch with a cool country breeze and a tall glass of lemonade or aqua de piña (fresh pineapple juice). If you’ve got that and it is not sweltering out – go for it!
