Waking up to
the aroma of bread
The simplicity and, at the same time, quality of the product he makes hides the reality of his trade.
Imagining what there is behind the aroma of freshly-baked bread as the sun rises is what occurs to Josep Maria, the fourth generation of bakers at Casa Dalmau in Rupià. The simplicity and, at the same time, quality of the product he makes hides the reality of his trade.
I do not know if the loneliness of working at night can be tasted in his sweet flatbread, with just the right touch of anise to tingle your tastebuds. Entering his establishment is like travelling back in time, a journey home. This small universe is a clear example of less being more.
