The Egyptians accidentally discovered the use of yeast in bread as a by-product of their beer making. Wild yeast that floated in the air from the beer landed in their wet flour dough and the dough began to rise. For a time, bread was made unleavened (without yeast) and for many years it was forgotten how to make leavened bread. The Normans reintroduced leavened bread to Europe. Baker’s guilds were formed which gave the bakers a certain amount of professional respect, and helped protect the public from bad bread.
The Bread That Grew tells the story of the Baker’s Bunch the day they decided to bake some bread at home. Everything was going well until Baby Beth’s brother told her that the bread had to be kneaded before it could be baked. Baby Beth learns in this story that words that sound alike sometimes can cause confusion and a very, very large loaf of bread resulted. She learns that “kneaded” does not mean “needed.”
