the bread used is maltese bread. I dont know if you might find something like it in England but do not use the usual sliced bread as the result wil be disastrous.lMaltese bread is a solid, sourdough bread. It has a crisp crust and a light crumb with irregular holes – and it is very tasty. If you can find something similar it will do. Good luck.
