This was shot for an Italian tourism client in Sorrento, Italy as apart of their marketing campaign. This is a bakery in the town Piano di Sorrento. It is operated by 2 brothers and a cousin and in the 30 minutes we had to shoot while they were working non stop.

In the opening photo is a loaf of bread with a couple of handfuls of finely chopped ham and the entire crew enjoyed this delight. They also brought out cinnamon rolls, and something they call a Cartucce, (Cartridges, as in shotgun) which is a small round pastry, about the size of a U.S. quarter or a €1 coin, with lemon zest baked into it. So while we are packing up and chowing down on these delights, they brought out a long slender Almond pastry which they then took a knife and cut up into finger sized slices. That was wonderful too. It is Biscotti, but only cooked once. Biscotti is crunchy and crumbles when eaten or dropped, but in order to cut it into a bite sized morsel, you need to remove it from the oven to cut it into the proper size and then return it to the oven to finish baking it. The crew consumed this too with equal delight and when we left, only a few small crumbs were left.
