Description - Bread by John Marchant

Throughout changing history and changing civilisations, bread's importance has been expressed in folklore, culture, religion and politics. Bread symbolises fertility, prosperity and protection against evil, and provides healing and consolation in times of hardship. It is also good to eat. The past 130 years, in particular, have seen dramatic changes in the way bread is made and in the pattersn of consumption. Wherther you like your bread white, sliced and wrapped or stoneground and wholemeal or in the form of baguettes, bagles or brioche, this book will tell you how it evolved and the tehnological, social and economic changes that brought the various forms to your local baker or supermarket.
