Excerpt from “Bread: A Journey Through History, Science, Art, and Community”:
“Bread is more than just a food; it’s a narrative that has been kneaded and shaped by human hands for millennia. From the ancient ovens of Mesopotamia to the artisanal bakeries of modern cities, each loaf tells a story. It’s a story of community, of gathering around a table and sharing not just a meal but a moment. It’s a story of science, where yeast and flour dance in microscopic ballet, creating the rise and crumb we so cherish. But most importantly, it’s a story of you—the home baker, the bread lover, the one who brings this age-old tale into the present and future.
Whether you’re a seasoned baker or a curious novice, there’s a place for you in this story. So why not turn the page and join me on this incredible journey?”
