Álvaro Rey Almeda

Álvaro Rey, known as Don Kino, owns a bakery that specializes in pan de arroz, delicate bread rolls made from rice flour, which reflect the relatively recent introduction of rice as a plains crop. Don Kino's wife learned the trade from his mother, and now the family is well known for the bread that they bake and sell daily.
