The History of Bread: Fun Facts You Never Knew

Bread has a rich history that reaches back at least 30,000 years. Historically, the first bread was made from roasted cereal grains and water, which was then made into a “grain-paste” that was then cooked. This flatbread still has a legacy in many parts of the world, where similar items are still made today. In Mexico, tortillas are descendants of this flatbread; as is Indian chapatti, naan, and roti; same with Armenian lavishes; and Iranian sangaks and taboons; and Scottish oatcakes; also North American johnnycake. As you can see, flatbread is still prevalent in many varieties across the world.
