Emilia-Romagna is a region in northern Italy known for its delicious and high-quality food products, including the famous Crescenta and Carsent. These traditional breads can be found in various towns and communes in the region, such as Bologna, Modena, and Parma. They are typically sold in local bakeries, specialty food shops, and markets.

Crescenta is a type of bread that is similar to a focaccia, but with a softer texture and a slightly sweet flavor. It is often enjoyed as a snack or as part of a meal. Carsent, on the other hand, is a savory bread made with cornmeal and often flavored with cheese or herbs. It is a popular choice for sandwiches or as a side dish.

Both Crescenta and Carsent have received the PAT (Traditional Agri-Food Product) recognition, which certifies their traditional production methods and regional significance. The specifications for Crescenta include using flour, water, yeast, sugar, and olive oil, while Carsent must be made with cornmeal, flour, water, yeast, and salt.

These traditional breads are an integral part of the culinary heritage of Emilia-Romagna and are cherished by locals and visitors alike.
