In Orroli, the land of centenaries, you will have the opportunity to visit the Kentos bakery, where bread is prepared by using ancient recipes. The bread is made with a superior quality durum wheat called Senatore Cappelli. Kentos uses a traditional yeast, “su frammentu”, their own natural dough starter, handed down from mother to daughter for over 300 years.
