Manolete Mollete is that kind of baker that whistles whilst kneading the dough. You might not be able to see it, because he has a thick moustache, but he is always smiling. Why is he always smiling? Just because! He enjoys it. In addition, bread tastes always better if you knead it while smiling, everyone knows that.

You will often see him with the moustache covered in flour. That’s how his father, his grandfather and his great-grandfather used to have it. His mum, grandma and great-grandma were also bakers, however they didn’t have a moustache (alright, grandma Buñuela Flauta had a little bit of a moustache)

He is as tender as a brioche, and as sweet as milk bread. And he is gluten free!
