Algatocin baker creates world’s most expensive bread… with gold

By Jacqueline Fanchini

YOU’LL need a lot of dough to afford your daily bread in Algatocin, where the local baker is selling loaves of gold.

And despite Spain’s high unemployment rate and struggle to survive the economic crisis, the historic Pan Pina bakery near Ronda reckons its onto a winner with its new line in the world’s most expensive bread.

The luxurious 400g loaf contains wheat dough, dehydrated honey, 250mg of gold dust and comes with a hefty €117 price tag.

Opened since 1940, the bakery’s owner Juan Manuel Moreno hopes to tap into the pockets of wealthy Russians, Asians and Arabs visiting or settling on the Costa del Sol with his gold dust creations.

“We incorporate gold both inside and outside the bread; it doesn’t add any flavour but if you give it a touch of exclusivity there’s a lot of glamour,” he said.

The bakery has been fighting the economic crisis with its attention to quality and flavour, and received a sensational response at Malaga’s Gastronomic Fair.
