You know fall is in the air, when the Pasticerria Sensi on Corso Mazzini in Assisi has pan caciato in the window.
“Cacio” means “cheese” in Umbrian dialect (“formaggio” is the word in Italian) and this tasty fall bread is made with pecorino (sheep’s milk cheese”) and walnuts.
In Assisi, most of us agree that the Sensis make the best as their pancasciato is rich in both cheese and walnuts.pIn late September/early October, this savory bread can be found in the best of the Umbrian
asticcerie: by late November, it disappears.
