National Homemade Bread Day is an annual food feast celebrated on November 17th of each year. Homemade recipes will have their own distinct taste and smell. Bread is a staple food that has existed for several centuries. There would be no other thing that can beat the smell of the freshly baked bread taken from the oven. You can now taste and smell the rich aroma of the bread baked in the home on National Homemade Bread Day. The Day encourages each one of us to bake bread at home as the tradition of baking fresh bread that existed as a daily routine for most families is forgotten.
“The hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread.” – Mother Teresa
History of National Homemade Bread Day
There is no proper mention of the history, origin, and founder of the National Homemade Bread Day. However, bread is one of the oldest prepared foods, and thus it has a long tradition. It is one of the oldest prepared foods that dates back to the Neolithic era. Colloquially, the bread is referred to as the “Staff of life.” Bread is the staple food prepared by cooking a dough of flour and water and adding additional ingredients frequently. It may include salt, fat, and leavening agents such as yeast and baking soda. However, bread may contain other ingredients like milk, eggs, sugar, spices, fruit like raisins, vegetables like onion, nuts like walnuts, or seeds such as poppy seeds.
The introduction of the bread-maker machine has made everyone at home bake homemade bread. The freshly baked bread is prized for its rich taste, aroma, appearance, quality, and texture. The types, shapes, sizes, and textures of bread differ around the world when the proportion of the ingredients is varied. It is served in various forms, such as with any meal of the day, as a snack, sandwiches, bread pudding, and more.
