GUESS WHAT THAT STANDS FOR!
Oh! For the Love of Bread!
Now we 5 minute breadophiles have a place to gasp, giggle and groove to our own drummer!
This is the place to feel free to get giggy about all things bread baking!
This day and age... EVERYONE is health conscious, carb conscious, and whole grain conscious.
Bread is life... people!
It is what the entire world has in common!
It is what keeps the world from starvation!
Every custom, nationality, country, city and state has an
indigenous type of bread they call their own.
From Italian Foccacia, to French Baguettes, to Indian Naan, to Armenian Lavosh to Mexican Tortillas to Jewish Challah and everything in between!
Bread brings cultures together.
In the Bible, breaking bread was a spiritual thing... Jesus chose to spend his last evening
breaking bread with his disciples. They could have danced, cavorted, walked, run away,
hidden, cried, lamented... anything! And they chose a last meal! AND he made a huge deal out of the BREAD representing his BODY!
Bread is BIG in the Bible... remember the Loaves and Fishes?
The PERFECT meal to me is
A baguette, some Sharp Provolone cheese, some fresh grapes and cherries, and
a wonderful glass (bottle, who am I kidding) of Stella Rosa wine.
The. Perfect. Meal.
Andi tells me she could live on bread and fruit forever.
My Bill, ADORES ALL FORMS OF BREAD!
The beauty is in baking it ourselves.
We know what goes in it.
We know what is NOT in it.
We can add all the nutrition we deem necessary... without some one else deciding for us...
AND it is so cost effective!
HAVE YOU SEEN THE PRICE OF ARTISAN LOAVES ON THE SHELVES?
