My grandmother used to bake her own bread.
She had a big knife that could cut through four loaves at the same time.
It was a four loaf cleaver.

More full of shiat than you realize. Northern California bakeries are renowned for the insect poop in their grains, which is rich in Lactobacillus sanfranciscensis bacteria, considered key to San Francisco's reputation for having among the world's best sourdough cultures. [popsci]

NearCanuck: Forgot to answer the OP.

So many choices, but I'll go with a sweet Finnish rye bread.  Can't remember the name, but it probably has at least four 'k's in it.  We have it every Christmas for a treat.  Molasses as the extra sweetness.  Two days to make.

Loaf lasts two days if you're lucky.


Not a single K.

Wonder Bread
[external-content.duckduckgo.com image 850x477]

And that was the best sandwich I've had in a while.

when, where, and why?

i can't imagine it was ever truly cheaper than home baked breads (even during the depression or WW2), and even if there was a time that "city folk" just didn't bake at home didn't they have (relatively cheap) local bakeries?

my paternal grandpa was the son of austrian immigrants, raised in urban chicago, was pretty darn poor (and grew up with 4 siblings who lived till adulthood, raised 6 kids of his own), and would be about 104 if he were still living, but i cannot possibly imagine him going without rye bread or poppy seed cake from a neighborhood european bakery, or his wife's homemade dinner rolls. -other than when he served in the pacific theater of WW2 of course......

No not cheaper. Wonder was not considered the cheap bread. This is a middle class bread. A Suburbanite's bread. In the 60's and 70's Wonder ruled the bread aisle.They were early in on sponsoring kids TV shows. Even back to the Howdy Dowdy show. So all the kids begged their parents to buy that bread. Combine that with the "helping build bodies 8 or 12 ways" ad campaign. That came because they added "nutrients" to the bread. So they sold mom too. It wasn't until food science advanced a bit before we realized it wasn't that great for you after all.


ah. thank you for clearing that up. as an american born in 1980 i certainly ate lots of "white bread" for packed lunch sandwiches all through elementary school, but that's all it was (and it's still my fave for a BLT with real garden tomatoes). but other breads were always around for other purposes.

the "exclusive wonder bread experience" is probably what my mom remembers, even if her dad also bought "his" bakery rye once a week... i remember as a little kid it was a big treat to be offered a slice of it, warm from the toaster and buttered, at my grandparent's house. it was "special" and couldn't just be randomly eaten for snacks, but back at home we knew many breads. (and many mustards. i always thought friends with less than 4 kinds of mustard in the fridge were weird and deprived.)

Wonder Bread
[external-content.duckduckgo.com image 850x477]

Laugh if you want. I was going to post about another variety fresh out of the oven, but this made me think.

For a person of a certain age (old) and background, Wonder Bread was the only bread we knew. I had not had any since the 70's when a few years ago I had access to a loaf. I also had access to Welch's grape jelly. Before I knew it I was 7 years old again. It was such a strong nostalgia moment I was stunned. Back to a time when my parents were alive and I didn't have a care or worry in the world.

And that was the best sandwich I've had in a while.

markie_farkie: When we lived in Turkey, the canon fired at sunset during Ramadan signaled that it was mad rush time to the local bakery, where we picked up fresh flatbread made in an enormous wood-fired oven.

It was fluffy with a nice crust, and was infused with some small black seeds that to this day I haven't been able to find.  They weren't sesame or poppy seeds, either.

Topped with fresh olive oil and feta, it was delicious.


Could those little black things be nigella seeds?

Turkish bread with creamy marinated feta, olive oil and herbs and spices is amazing. Especially the Turkish flat bread that peels off into strips yet is still somehow fluffy and soft.

I'm currently eating some homemade garlic bread - impossibly crusty on the outside, improbably soft and fluffy on the inside, spread with about 125g of butter and a half a bulb of garlic. Some slices made with added basil paste. Heart attack on a plate, but worth it.

Bread was made to come with a fresh-made pasta: a four cheese lasagna. Made it with my signature Veneto sauce: 1/2 pound of diced veneto salami, 2 pounds pork and veal mince, browned. 1/2 lb button mushroom, mixed herbs, 1/2 bulb garlic, 1 big onion, stick of celery, 1 carrot, sautéed in olive oil. Simmered with 40oz tomato passata and a bottle of white wine (1 glass into the sauce, five into the chef). Topped with the thickest, creamiest half-and-half bechamel with pecorino you have ever seen. The milk-cream mix for the bechamel was boosted with vegetable essence,, a clove studded onion, allspice and cinnamon bark while it simmered.

Amazingly good with the garlic bread.

Orlando had a radio talk show host - Jim Phillips. He used to rave about real philly cheese steak and how the water from philly made the bread taste different and couldn't be duplicated anywhere else. I have no clue. My favorite? There are so many I can't begin to remember.
