About Santos Bakery
Bread has always had a very important place in Portuguese everyday life and in many Portuguese menus, and not only at breakfast. In certain regions of Portugal, bread cereal (namely wheat) was intensely grown throughout the past century and bread became the basic ingredient of the local people’s diet, especially at very difficult times.
Nowadays bread is still the main ingredient of typical recipes. The Portuguese proverb “Casa onde não há pão, todos ralham e ninguém tem razão”, which means something like “In a home with no bread, everybody claims for something and nobody is right”, illustrates the importance of bread for Portuguese people.
