THE STORY

Picture the scene if you can :
The Royal Palace is in crisis! Queen Margherita’s personal baker is madly in love and has stopped baking the Royal Bread. What is 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 is in panic, how shall we find the Queen’s wild yeast? Where is the wild yeast hidden?
Will you help Giuditta, the Queen’s handmaiden, to find the wild yeast and bake the Queen’s bread?
Sondra, playing Giuditta, will guide you on a bicycle tour through Monza’s delightful Royal Park. You will travel peacefully and slowly 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 freshly baked bread as we enjoy a royal experience with a lunchtime picnic in the mill courtyard.
