casatiello

Savoury Neapolitan Easter bread

Made with lard (strutto) and an assortment of salumi, pecorino and traditionally topped with hard-boiled eggs, this is a classic, rich rustic bread served in Naples on the antipasti platter at Easter.

In Liguria, Easter is celebrated with an equally elaborate but very different dish: Torta Pasqualina.
