BREAD is universally present
and loved around the world,
even rice and corn-based cultures have rice and corn breads; it consumed by people of all economic statuses, ages, genders, ethnicity, religions, educational backgrounds, etc. Therefore, bread is a universal experience and a universal language to unite and educate. Even more, bread making is a form of art and love, as it is made to be shared with others. So, here we share our bread inspirations.
