National Homemade Bread Day is celebrated in the US on November 17th and celebrates the flavorful baked goods we love so much! The smell of fried toast in the morning really drives you crazy – how can you refuse such a breakfast? Today’s date urges people to make bread in their own kitchen. What do you think about it?
National Day appeared thanks to baking lovers, but it has not yet been possible to single out the creators. Bread has been around for almost as long as humanity has. It may have appeared during the Neolithic period in Europe 10 years ago. Even after the tragic eruption of Pompeii, scientists found ovens – proof that people then knew how to cook pastries. The researchers even revealed that there were 000 bakeries in the area!
The modern world gives comfort in everything. There are various models of bread machines on the market – choose any and cook without any hassle. The ancestors could not have imagined that in the future a device would appear that would knead the dough itself, select a program and turn off when ready. Homemade bread is rightfully considered healthy – there are no unnecessary additives in it: only the ingredients that you have chosen.
Did you know:
- in the house-museum of Salvador Dali in Paris there is a bread room. It is unique in that all items are made from bread;
- in the Byzantine Empire in the 10th century, bakers were exempt from paying taxes;
- in India, one of the most serious insults is if a guest speaks disrespectfully about bread;
- in England in 1266, the standard for the weight of bakery products was adopted – at least 600 grams. This fact served for a long time: only in 2008 the government gave the green light to baking smaller products.
