From Pompeii to the construction of the pyramids, almost since time began, bread has been a basic necessity of life and a religious symbol. Since then, it has been introduced to every corner of the world by the massive spread of international tourism.
Today, bread consumption is decreasing in all industrialized countries. There are two main reasons for this. First, there is lack of professionalism and many un-scrupulous bakers are selling mediocre products. The second purely speculative reason is that many people are persuaded that bread makes you fat. This refers to the new fashion (LCL) ‘Low Calorie Law’. The truth is that the bread itself is not the real issue here but the way or how we are eating it.
- We are convinced that bread is one of best and most complete individual foods available.
- We are also convinced that the new, fancy kinds of bread are not a real plus for ‘La Gastronomie’.
An old-fashioned white or brown bread suits any meal.
A few special breads are acceptable, such as: onion bread for salads, light or dark rye bread with seafood, good walnut bread is appreciated with cheeses, Italian bread for its long conservation and even garlic bread with Mediterranean food.
