The Egyptians were the first to produce risen loaves
by using yeast. An accident? Perhaps someone left their bread dough
outside in the hot sunshine too long. Heat causes the yeast to grow
and make light, air-filled bread!!
They rather cleverly invented the first ovens for baking
bread and believed that they would continue farming after death!! The
Egyptians were the first to invent calenders in order to better plan
the planting and harvesting of their crops.
The type of bread you ate depended on how rich you were
- poorer people ate a rough type of loaf while the rich ate a better
class of bread!
