Breaking bread together is a metaphor for social interaction.
It's been important for several 1000 years.
After all the word companion comes from the Latin meaning one who eats bread with another.
Too often people cut bread out of their diet entirely - moderation is another possibility.
Making your own bread for family or friends is a way of celebrating that friendship,
you don't need to eat the whole loaf!
My thoughts are on bread today after reading the latest post from The Sunday Collector.
I knew 'Bourke Street Bakery' was a cook book I would love from Briar's description and photos.
An amazing sour dough recipe and the prospect of pain au chocolat
were enough to make me click 'Buy' on Amazon!
Well, that is easier than flying down to Sydney to sample the bakery itself.
Book's now ordered and on its way to my sisters postbox in Suffolk. Thanks Jen!
