Saint Joseph's Bread

See the RecipeLandon Nordeman

At Minardi Baking Company, Saint Joseph's bread is made in 100-pound batches. The dough is repeatedly pushed through a series of rollers, which compress it, so that it's dense enough to retain the bread's intricately wrought designs through the rising and baking process. We've streamlined the recipe, creating a rendition of the Saint Joseph's staff that's easy to prepare at home.
