Rudy Marangon’s story is one of passion and of family. Of passion because he approached confectionery and baking a little at a time, turning out the first biscuits under his own trademark in a small bakery of only 20 square meters. Of family because it was the people dearest to him that supported and worked with him. The shop he opened in the old center of Pianezza in 2012 is a welcoming place offering a vast range of goods, made using only the finest ingredients, the flours first and foremost. Here one comes not only for bread (from sourdough French loaves, including wholemeal versions, to mini-ciabattas), grissini, rusks, pizzas and focaccias, but also for yeast-leavened cakes such as panettone and colomba and the vast range of pastries, among which Melicotti, biscuits typical of Pianezza. The shop doubles as an enoteca and deli with delicacies from all over Italy, where it’s also possible to sit down at the tables for a quick snack choosing from the vast range of charcuterie, cheese and excellent fresh pasta on display.
