“The Madeiran delicacy ranks 22nd among the 100 best in the world.”
Bolo do Caco is among the best breads in the world. The election was conducted by Taste Atlas, a well-known gastronomic travel guide, which in September ranked the top 100 breads worldwide.
In the assessment by the guide, with ratings ranging from 0 to 5, Bolo do Caco ranks 22nd with a score of 4.5 points. Alongside the Madeiran delicacy, the list also features another Portuguese bread, Broa de Milho, which ranks 21st, tied in points with the typical bread produced on the islands of Madeira and Porto Santo.
On the platform, the guide highlights that Bolo do Caco “is the common bread in Madeira and is usually served as a warm appetizer with garlic butter spread, but it can also be enjoyed in a sandwich or as a side dish to various traditional Portuguese dishes,” as described.
