Le pain - bread - das Brot......petit histoires.

 As a young 'Boy Scout' I recall wasting weekends at my school learning how to light a fire by rubbing those famous 2 sticks together, or hitting 2 flintstones together, until I figured that buying a box of matches was easier!
I also recall learning (or having to learn) how to make a sort of bread just with water and flour, cooked (more burnt) in the ashes of said fire. I freely admit that it was not terribly appetising, but it WAS edible!
Here is an extract from the history of bread....
The Hungarians have a saying...'Bread is older than man'  http://www.cebp.eu/Default.aspx?ID=73 but the fabrication of bread continued to advance through various historical stages, and finally its fabrication, weight, sale, price and quality caused a number of Government's downfalls, quite a few Royal executions ('the people have no bread? Then let them eat cake', being a notable one) - All over the world this commodity has been present seemingly for ever since the start of time, and has participated in many events in our history......There are good ones, bad ones, indifferent ones, but it's always present and even the Italian, better known for his pasta indulgences will not hesitate when it comes to bread! A favourite of the British (who do not have very good bread) is the 'chip buttie' or the 'bacon buttie'-the first being their sliced white 'elastic' bread spread liberally with butter and covered with chips (French Fried potatoes) - I've even seen this atrocity made with mashed potatoes/french fries/butter....and - of course, bread!
The bacon buttie is self explanatory! It is not surprising at the cardiac rates in Great Britain!

English: Luberon's Bread (Vaucluse, France) ma... The Germanics, being traditionally a beer drinking nation, call some of their beer 'liquid bread' because the laws of the land allow only the same ingredients for both products, and both are consumed in particular at 'Vespers'
(taken any time between 4pm and 7pm)  (Just a shade healthier than the British version.....!)
Bread, pain, brot, merits a lot more attention, so I do not doubt that I will come back to the subject, but right now......it's sandwich time!

Bonne Appétit!
