A sandwich is nothing more than two slices of bread filled with meat, cold cuts and more. The origin of its name is British and it has a particular history: in 1762 in a famous pub, an English nobleman (fourth Earl of Sandwich) a great gambler, being hungry one night, refused to get up from the table and had a brilliant idea: he had him brought two slices of bread with sliced  salt beef in the middle. The other people in the room were inspired by him and ordered the same thing. From that moment on, the name Sandwich has been used to refer to any sliced bread filled with bits of food.

Nowadays there are different types of bread used to make sandwiches: with different shapes, sizes and recipes, each and every single one of them is unique. We at Altino Pane produce several kinds of bread loafs and one of these is called American grill.

A grill is a type of bread that can be heated on a grill or on a griddle. It is sometimes called American grill or American bread due to the origins of the barbecue grill and it is the kind of bread suitable for those who prefer hot sandwiches that do not have the same consistence of a toast.

The soft and fine texture and the full-bodied taste of this bread make it unique in its kind. At Altino Pane we produce the real American grill: salted to the right point, our bread is perfect to be used on the grill, in the oven, on the griddle or in the toaster: once heated, it can be served with both sweet and savory fillings, butter, chocolate cream and cured meats. This bread enhances the taste instead of hiding it and it remains pleasantly scented after being toasted. It can be enjoyed at its best when dipped hot into the cooking sauces or in the juices left by the grilled meat. Its taste will overwhelm you.

It is frozen like all our products in order to preserve its properties and taste without recoursing to the classic expedients of the food industry and therefore without alcohol and without preservatives. Once defrosted, the grill is identical to freshly baked bread and can be consumed within 72 hours like any other fresh bakery product. We address to wholesalers in the food industry who look for frozen bread as the best alternative to the fresh one. Frozen bread can be kept for a year and still maintain its quality and it is ideal for bars and restaurants that do not have time for daily shopping and want to have instead a fresh product always at hand.
