The 16th of October 2006 has been declared as "World Bread Day" by the International Union Of Bakers And Bakers-Confectioners (UIB).

As bread holds an important role in our lives, Zorra of the highly recommendable "
Kochtopf" blog has decided to organize a little foodblog-event on the occasion of this special day.

Here's what she says:

"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 (feel free to write your post in your mother tongue)

* Send an email to kochtopf(at)gmail(dot)com including
- your name
- your blog's name and your blog's URL
- the recipe name and the post's URL
- your hometown/region and country."

So, what are you waiting for, heh?!?!?

Get motivated and bake that bread! We foodies and foodbloggers worlwide want to see your creation and we can't wait to discover new recipes...


  1. I'm afraid I'll forget. You'll have to post this again (to remind us oldies!). Great idea!

  2. Bon week end...BISOU

  3. I can't wait to see you at Bread Day, Rosa!

  4. Bread Day sounds like fun! I will participate, with my breadmaker, of course!

    And just want to tell you that I haven't forget about the food meme, just that I can only think of two things I must eat before I die. When I can get all five, I will blog it!

  5. ROSA: Ok! You know, youngies also forget things, especially me, he, he!!!

    SHER: I hope that you'll remember ;-). I'd love to see your contribution!

    COLETTE: Merci ;-)!

    PAZ: Woaw, that's a courageous decision! You'll see that it will not be as difficult as you imagine it to be. In fact, once you will have baked and eaten your first loaf, you'll never go back to your old habits ; it becomes very addictive as nothing's better than homemade bread!!!...

    Thanks for tagging me, Paz. I'll do this meme as soon as possible!...

    IVONNE: Thanks! I'm also looking forwards to your contribution, Ivonne!

    5XMOM: Great! It will be an interesting day, then...

    No problem with the meme. Take your time!
