Save the yeast of Queen Margherita!


Picture the scene if you will:
The Royal Palace is in crisis! Queen Margherita’s personal baker is mad for love and has stopped baking the Royal Bread.  What’s more, he has hidden the unique,legendary wild yeast from which the Royal bread is made. Without it the bread cannot be made. Nothing else will do. The Royal Household are in a panic, how shall we find the Queen’s wild yeast? Where in the wild yeast hidden?
Will you help Giuditta the Queen’s handmaiden to find the wild yeast and bake the Queen’s bread?


Artès Sondra
Sondra, playing Giuditta, will guide you by bicycle  through Monza’s delightful Royal Park. You will travel at a sedate pace through organic hay meadows, farms and the former hunting lodges of the King to the river and an ancient mill. You will experience all the sensual pleasures of the traditional baker’s art, feeling your hands knead the dough, smelling the aromas of baking bread, and , of course, tasting your own fresh baked bread as we enjoy a regal experience with a lunchtime picnic in the mill courtyard.
