SPERLONGA ?

My local Whole foods does this delightful Italian - esque loaf, a bit cabatta like I suppose, was wondering if anyone has heard of it, or wold have a recipe?

I suspect "Sperlonga" is a trade name (it certainly romanticizes the bread) which is likely proprietory.

Hi,

Was also interested in the Sperlonga recipe.  Did Corey share this recipe.  Think it has some of conditioner in it as well as sourdough starter and maybe a bit of rye flour for flavor.

Thanks, Suzi

I am excited that there may be a chance to obtain the recipie for Sperlonga.  The nearest Whole Foods (the only source of this bread as fas as I know) requires a 150 mile round trip.  Thank you.
