A to Z of Breads from Around the World [Infographic]


In these troubled times, it can be heart-warming to remember there are some human basics that unite the peaceful majority of us across cultures – and one such element is the simple enjoyment of bread. The history of bread stretches back across millennia, so it is heartening to note the varied and imaginative ways that this staple food has evolved in different regions.

Take the Hembesha bread of Eritrea in northeast Africa, for example. A flat, round, spicy bread, it is best served with tea and honey, making for a complex but tasty treat. In Russia, where the weather is not quite the same, their ‘Qistibi’ flatbread is served instead with mashed potato or meat sauce. A more warming alternative which has emerged from a similar base.
