World Bread Day 2009, October 16 – Yes, We Bake

How much is that loaf of bread in the window?

This is my contribution to the fourth edition of World Bread Day, hosted by Zorra of Kochtopf.  The few times that I’ve baked bread, to my surprise, I’ve enjoyed it.  And my bread has turned out terrific!  I didn’t get a chance to bake bread for World Bread Day but luckily there are many stores in my neighborhood that provide delicious bread.  The bread displayed in the window was very tempting, so I bought some.

Zorra will post a roundup of the entries on October 24 and 25.  Be sure to stop by her blog to see other deliciously-baked bread posts.


Ed. Note:  You can find the roundup here.

On the way from the post office, I passed by this discarded sofa chair on the sidewalk.  Obviously, the owner didn’t need it anymore but I’m sure that someone would come by and make good use of it.  I’ve thrown out many things before (from furniture to books) and within a very short time, found that someone had picked it up.  One man’s junk is another man’s treasure. 


On another note, I’d like to pass along the word that the 4th edition of World Bread Day 2009 — Yes, We Bake is coming up on October 16, 2009.  It’s a fun event in which to participate.  For more information, stop by Zorra’s blog.

Have a great week, everyone!













Announcement: World Bread Day 2007

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!

As written in an earlier post, The International Union of Bakers and Bakers-Confectioners (UIB) have designated October 16, World Bread Day.

In celebration of this day, Zorra from Kochtopf is hosting a bread blogging event, where we’re all invited to bake or buy bread and blog about it.

I had planned on baking my first bread ever, but I just haven’t had time. So here are photos of the bread I bought to use for lunch this week. Pita bread. It tasted nice, fresh, and good smelling when I removed it from the plastic bag covering. I like the light yet filling pita bread, especially when I have it with foods like fallafels, tabbouleh, and fattoush salad.

My future plans include baking bread, so you may still see it here one day. Stay tuned.
