  1. Okay, this one always gets me: At what point in time does a society discover bread? Are there some societies that don’t ever use bread? Is it a necessary staple, or just the result of what resources are available?

  2. I think bread of some sort is pre-historic. I know jaþāota comes from anhāmāe (~wheat), but I don’t know if it is leavened or not. My favorite non-Western breads are naan and injera.

  3. Leavened means that the bread in question has been caused to rise by the addition of a leavening agent, such as yeast.
