Naan. Focaccia. Challah. Baguette. Pretzel. Tortilla. Pita. Bammy. Can you name which country these breads are from? Talk about an international language, there’s nothing like food to bring us all together! Bread is certainly spoken everywhere, in all shapes, sizes and ingredients. The familiar knot-shape of the Pretzel is synonymous with baking in Germany and has been a symbol of their Bakers Guild since the 12th Century. Cornbread is very American, as Native Americans may have been the first to use ground corn (maize) as food—thousands of years ago. Zojirushi has some international breads too; try some of these and take a trip around the world!

Baking in your breadmaker isn’t tricky, but there definitely are a few tricks you can learn to get the best results.
