Pane di Iurmano is a traditional bread from the Campania region of Italy, specifically found in the towns of Iurmano, San Giorgio La Molara, and San Marco dei Cavoti. This bread is known for its unique shape, which resembles a twisted rope, and its delicious flavor. It is made with simple ingredients such as flour, water, yeast, and salt, but the key to its distinct taste lies in the traditional baking methods and the use of local, high-quality ingredients.

One popular recipe for Pane di Iurmano involves mixing the flour, water, yeast, and salt to form a dough, which is then shaped into long, twisted ropes and left to rise before being baked in a wood-fired oven. Another variation of the recipe includes the addition of olive oil and herbs to the dough, giving the bread a more savory flavor.

Pane di Iurmano has been recognized with the PAT (Traditional Agri-food Product) designation, which signifies its traditional production methods and ties to the local culture and history.
