Announcement: World Bread Day 2007

September 8, 2007 | Filed Under Announcements, World Bread Day 


Hi Folks,

Last year, Zorro of Kochtopf hosted the very first World Bread Day event among food bloggers.  She’s doing it again.  This year, it’ll take place on October 16, 2007.  Below is  your invitation to participate.  Come join in the fun!

Last year’s World Bread Day was such a great and successful event. Thanks to all the participants I could present a huge basket of bread filled with breads from 6 continents!

So I’m very happy to announce the second World Bread Day, which again takes place on October 16th.

The original World Bread Day – an event created by UIB International Union of Bakers and Bakers-Confectioners – wants to provide an opportunity to talk about bread and bakers, to find out about their history, their importance as well as their future.

Let’s bake and talk about bread on this day again! Everybody is cordially invited to participate.

The theme is open, just bake a bread with or without yeast, use sourdough, experiment with different flours, add some seeds… It’s up to you!

You never have baked a bread before? Well, give it try! It’s easy and once you have this smell of your own fresh bread in your kitchen, there is no way back. If you have no time to bake a bread, you can buy one at your favorite bakery and write about the bread and also the bakery.

No idea what kind of bread you should bake? You don’t need to reinvent the wheel bread! 😉 Inspiration you find e.g. here, here and here.

I’m looking forward to see a huge basket filled with breads from all over the world again!
