Mom's Sweet Portuguese Bread
sweet Portuguese bread is baked in the restaurant for sale on
Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. To insure optimal quality, attention is
given to every detail of its preparation. For instance, "early bird"
customers often are instructed to permit the still hot bread to cool
before placing it in a plastic bag for storage.
Due to the very high demand for hundreds of loaves for holidays and our limited
production, it is prudent to call or stop by to reserve an order for your preferred pick-up date a week in advance of the holiday.
The bread retains its freshness for a week when refrigerated, and may
be stored for longer periods if frozen. Our customers frequently ship it across
the country without any loss of quality.
In addition to serving the bread as an accompaniment to dinner, or for
sandwiches or toast, it makes a fantastic French toast. Also, it is
delicious dipped in herbal balsamic vinegar or herbal olive oil.
