3rd World Bread Day hosted by 1x umruehren bitte aka kochtopf
The last two year’s World Bread Days were such great and successful events. Thanks to all the participants I could present huge baskets of bread filled with breads from all over the world!

So I’m very happy to announce the 3rd World Bread Day, that takes place on October 16th again.

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. No idea what kind of bread you should bake? You don’t need to reinvent the wheel bread! ;-) Why not to pick a recipe from here, here or here? If you do so, don’t forget to mention which blogger was your inspiration.

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.

I’m looking forward to see a huge basket filled with breads from all over the world again!

  1. I’ve eagerly waiting for the theme this year. This will give me a chance to try a recipe from one of my newer bread books.

  2. I was wondering why no BBD till December.
    I had seen thr previous editions of WBD but never had the courage to attempt bread then.
    Maybe I’ll do something this time.

  3. Hi Zorra, I want to partecipate this event and I want to know if I can advertise on my foodblog for this event,saying who is the source, of course…
    I have also a question for you: the world day of bread has a theme, or I’ll be free to baking?
    Sorry for my english. thanks

  4. Dear Zorra, I read about World Bread Day just today, in Cindystar’sblog. I have a blog too, named a casa di Ross (; can I promote the event in my blog? I should like to partecipate, making a very special bread. I will send you the pictures and the recipes too, and speaking about the bread I’m going to bake. Hi, Ross

  5. Ciao carissima!
    Ho ricevuto giorni fa il tuo invito e parteciperò volentieri!!! :D
    Posso già farne menzione sul blog parlando dell’evento (rimanderò con un link al tuo blog)? Ovviamente la ricetta la posterò come da regolamento, il 16 ottobre, era solo per divulgare maggiormente la cosa :)
    Grazie e bacioni!
    PS: ho già pronte le foto del mio „pane“, le sto tenendo in serbo per te! =(^.^)=

  6. This is the first world bread day for me and I‘ m very happy to participate… I love bread and I often bake it so… I‘ ll send my receipt, bye bye!!!

  7. Zorra,
    You have no idea how excited I am about joining this event. I will definitely not going to miss this! This is really great event Zorra. Really great!

  8. Can we post before 16 October? I have a recipe to contribute but would rather post now than risk not being able to post on the 16th …

  9. REPLY:
    The idea is to post on World Bread Day, means October 16. If there is a substantial reason you can’t post it on that day, you’re allowed to post before.

  10. Thank you for keeping me on your email list and alerting me to this event. I just posted my photos on Flickr and my World Bread Day post is ready and waiting for Thursday.

  11. Zorra incluyo mi receta para este nuevo evento, te mandé un mail con todos los datos requeridos, dime si lo recibiste, un besito, Mar
