Bread was first made at least 14,000 years ago, and this magical alchemy of grain, yeast, and water has been sustaining people ever since. Today, there is not a country in the world that does not enjoy some form of bread as part of their culinary tradition.

The story of bread is the story of civilization – but bread is so much more than a food. It's also a symbol of community and 'breaking bread' a metaphor for shared blessings.

The Little Book About Bread is a celebration of this ancient foodstuff in all its fabulous forms. From sourdough to focaccia and from challah to brioche, it's crammed with fascinating history, fabulous quotes and handy hints and tips. It's little, yes – but large when it comes to shouting about the joy of bread in all its many guises.
