Around 9,000 years ago in the Middle East, our ancestors began mixing wild grains with water into a thick paste. The mixture was formed into cakes, then dried in the sun, creating a primitive, prehistoric bread. Fast forward to this age and we see that large automated baking units and speedy food technology have managed to perfect the art of light-textured ‘cotton-wool’ bread.
If you yearn for a bread that is a bit more ‘rustic’ (I wouldn’t call it prehistoric!), nutritious and delicious – try this recipe!
