Ricordo di Milano

The “michetta” bread roll is a symbol of Milanesity at the kitchen table, much like risotto, cotoletta, and panettone. But it’s a difficult bread with a short shelf-life, and perhaps for this reason, whereas other breads have taken over dining tables, the michetta has become a vintage symbol. It recalls Milan and plays with the memory of the city, enclosing it in a box that opens like a flower elevating the rank of the michetta to a souvenir of the city to gift to someone, or savor in a moment of, both, past and present taste.
