Winding Down Our Daily Bread 31

What more is there to say? Plenty, of course, but not this time. This is the final episode of this run of Our Daily Bread.

I say that as if there will be another, but all I’m really doing is leaving the door slightly ajar. I’ve had a lot of fun and learned a lot. I hope you have too.

For a final thought, I cannot do better than Elizabeth David, from her meticulous chapter on The Cost of Baking Your Own Bread in English Bread and Yeast Cookery. After going through nutrition, prices and all that she writes:

“So much for price comparisons. Long before you’ve finished doing the sums you realise that what counts is the value of decent bread to you and to the people you are responsible for feeding, and what that is, it’s up to us to work out for ourselves.”

  • Loved this month of daily podcasts on the history of wheat from Jeremy Cherfas
    It’s got everything: genetics, agronomy, weights and measures, politics, and of course bread.

  • Wonderful, sweeping series of podcasts on bread and its crucial role in economic and cultural history. With luck, a book will follow. #foodhist
