La Maidda is a big wooden container which was used to store bread in olden times in Sicily. At that time bread was made at home, once a week. It was a feast for us children. I loved to eat the bread just out of the oven. The ovens were made of stone by the way, we didn't have electric ovens or microwaves then.
Here are some of the things you can find at La Maidda, a brand new bread shop which makes lots of delicious Sicilian bread, as well as pizza, croissants etc. as you can see from the pictures below. This shop uses SOUR DOUGH and REAL BUTTER, that is their distinguishing characteristics. The taste of bread made with sour dough is unbelievably delicious.
These days, as I'm sure you all know, we are not allowed to go out, but La Maidda kindly agreed to deliver the goodies to the house.
