World Bread Day ’06 – Invitation to participate

Who can resist the smell of a fresh baked bread?

Since thousands of years we are eating bread. Bread is one of our staple food. It’s fascinating, only with flour, water and salt you can do such a big varieties of bread!

The International Union of Bakers and Bakers-Confectioners (UIB) declared 16th of October as World Bread Day.

Bread means so much to the most of us, it deserves a World Day in its honour! Even it deserves a special food-blog-event, no?

world bread day '06

So I would like to take this opportunity and invite all food- and other bloggers to bake a bread and blog about it.

Bake a bread with or without yeast, use sourdough, experiment with different flours, add some seeds… It’s up to you!
Let us also know which is your favorite bread, your „bread habits“ and how much bread you consume.

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.

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 hope at the round-up (which I try to set up on 17th of October) we will see a huge basket filled with bread from all over the world!

How to participate:

  • Bake or buy a bread, take pictures (if possible) and blog about it on Monday, 16h October 2006

  1. herold beabsichtigt, demnächst mit einem brotback-automat in gebäck-produktion zu gehen und hat eine frage an die werten fach-frauen und -männer:
    was ist beim kauf eines brotbackautomaten zu beachten?
    (please, tell it in german, da versteht man’s besser.)

  2. Hi Zorra, thank you for the invitation! I would like to ask if i could participate by sending a link to a bread recipe I’ve already tested, it is so good that it is practically the only bread I’ve been baking lately. (Or, i could blog about the most consumed bread here in Brazil, let’s see…)

  3. REPLY:
    I suggest you write a new entry for the World Bread Day ’06, there you write why this is your favorit bread, and there you can link to your already tested bread recipe. In this new entry you could also write about the most consumed bread in Brazil. How does it strike you?

  4. What a very good idea. It’s a pity that has not added this event to their activities page.


    P.S. It’s going to be very difficult deciding which bread to make for the big day!

  5. The banner + your invitation are pretty , as allways, thanks.
    I wrote a note in an Israeli Food form about the Bread day + a link to read about it in your Blog too. I asked all Israeli readers to send me their Bread pictures and recipes ,so I should load them in a nice Bread post in the Bread day in my Blog.
    I hope to see many Breads..
    Thank you ! ;)

  6. hi zorra…it’s my first time visiting your blog and would be happy to participate in this event. as soon as i’m done writing my post i’ll send it to you! what a happy event, isn’t it?

  7. REPLY:
    Eigentlich hättest du mir ein mail schicken sollen, wie es oben im Text steht. ;-) Das ist zur Vereinfachung für mich gedacht, sonst muss ich für den Roundup überall Rezepte suchen gehen….

  8. Gedanken, Fotos und ein Brotrezept gibt es bei mir heute, pünktlich zum 16. Okotber!

    Greeting , saludos, Grüße und Bonjour à tout le monde – seelenruhig!

  9. REPLY:
    Dilek könntest du mir diese Infos bitte per email schicken. Sonst verliere ich den Ueberblick. Bis jetzt sind schon mehr als 50 Rezepte eingetroffen. Ich brech zusammen. ;-)

  10. As I am eating my home made bread sandwhich I stumble upon your event. So of course I must participate. Will write about it right now and add the picture later this evening at home.
