Tips: I found this recipe in an older issue of Saveur. The recipe is very long, but the steps to put it together are not difficult at all. I never achieved the crispy crust as the bread photographed in the magazine, but more of a soft and light bread that was really wonderful. I like a more crusty bread, but the kids like a softer bread, so this bread is always a hit!
What is Filone Bread? Filone, pronounced “fill-oh-nee,” means line in Italian. The bread is actually like a long line, sort of like a baguette, but not quite as long as one. A filone is the perfect everyday bread and the perfect bread to do the scarpetta. Do you know what doing the scarpetta is? It is taking a piece of bread and swirling it around your dish to get every last bit of sauce. I’m proud to say that my son is quite the scarpetta expert!
