More bread, man......!

 The importance of 'bread' is shown in the usage of the very word in relation to other things.
'No bread, man' is not a good sign - not only can you not buy any, but you can't buy anything else either! The real article comes in all shapes, sizes, tastes and forms......colours and types are just as varied, one of them, and only one, have I always been unable to eat 'Pumpernickel bread' - it is so solid you can hear it grating its passage down to your stomach and splashing, undigested, into your stomach - Frightening!
There are so many types of mixtures attributed to 'bread that it is difficult to know where to start! These are only my personal choices and opinions, of course.......these things are adored by certain people ..Bagels.....the only thing I eat from them is the hole! A kind of 'muffin' - edible at teatime or breakfast for some people.....When in India, do as the locals ..or if it's Hallowe'en then this may be useful..... - which brings us back to the violent history of bread. Even now there are 'Inspectors' who go around controlling the weight of bread......a 'baguette' under a certain weight may not be sold as such, and heavy fines are imposed if they are! The history of the french baguette shows the love shown by the French to this national symbol, and in between times, the same attachment has been taken by many Foreigners living here in France. Here is a link to a site dealing with some historical aspects of the baguette and bread in general ...... http://www.retrodor.com/en/index.php/bread-in-the-french-tradition/history-of-bread-and-baguettes  or this one which deals with French baguettes, wine and cheese....  http://foreigndetours.com/baguette-and-french-bread/
In France, particularly in Paris or other larger cities, the most popular midday snack is still, after centuries 'Jambon - beurre'.....half a yard of baguette, sliced lengthways, spread more or less liberally with butter and containing a slice or slices of cooked ham-try it, it's good....
Never forget however, that the French had occasion to use their famous guillotine, often, in relation to issues concerning bread..... and the peasants were revolting........maybe that's why it's called 'PAIN' in French.......don't mock it!
