Bread — quite possibly the quintessential food the world over, one of the most fundamental parts of the diet of people on every part of the globe. It is believed the ancient Egyptians were the first bakers, the first loaf possibly discovered when some porridge got left out too long. Wild yeast in the air or on the grain itself caused it to ferment, and when Akbar accidentally dropped the sludge onto a stone in the fire, voila — primitive bread. Granted, the story is a bit far-fetched, but incredible shit happens every day.
