Bread Tree at Southbank Centre

Bread Tree are dedicated to the art form of the bruschetta and the wonders of authentic Italian artisan foods.

They make bruschetta the way families in Italy have done for centuries, no short cuts and using bread made in a small bakery in Sicily. Seasonings and toppings are all sourced in Calabria, such as pickled aubergines, sundried tomatoes, pesto Calabrese, sundried tomato paste and nduja.

Also on the menu are piadina, the delicious Italian flatbread sandwich. Go for the traditional parma ham or check out one of the veggie or vegan options, all served with sauces that come from southern Italy. And there are wheat-free options too – just ask the team.

Cristian’s family is originally from Calabria, where his grandfather was a producer of wine and olive oil. Rebecca, originally from Taiwan, also comes from a country where people are very passionate about great food, and she has contributed to Bread Tree her dedication to healthy ingredients.
