Addeo is a family-owned Italian bread bakery that has been in operation since 1929 and is now run by the 3rd-generation brothers, Laurence and Tommy Addeo. Among their specialties is their Pane di Casa, an oval white Italian bread that is made from what Laurence described to us as “a long-term dough that takes as much as 8 hours of preparation in fermentation, scaling and proofing before it even goes into the oven.”
