Bread Lives in Every Culture of the WorldBread Lives in Every Culture of the WorldBread Lives in Every Culture of the World

Bread is a staple that supports basic human life, and it is found in some form or other in virtually every food culture in the world. Bread is divided into leavened and unleavened—one type uses yeast to make it rise and take shape, the other does not but is still baked or fried. Given its ancient history that dates back thousands of years, it’s easy to understand why bread is so significant to many of the world’s religions, and as the one food in common with most of the world’s civilizations.



Unleavened bread is usually associated with flatbreads like Mexican tortillas, American johnnycakes or the Jewish matzo, but some are leavened with yeast like Indian naan, Turkish pita or Italian focaccia. Bake our focaccia

Bread and Religion

Bread and Religion

In many Christian religions, the sharing of bread represents the act of a communion with God. In the Jewish faith, the festive Challah bread is baked with a family recipe passed down for generations. Bake our challah

French Bread

French Bread

France is proud and picky about their bread. To be an official baguette, under French Bread Law, it must weigh 250-300 grams, be 55-65 cm long and baked only with flour, salt, yeast and water. Bake our baguette

Chinese Mantou

Chinese Mantou

Mantou, a soft steamed bread, is the staple food in northern China where wheat, rather than rice is grown. Mantou is served without any fillings, unlike bao, a variation filled with sweet or savory ingredients. Bake our bao
