Arise, and eat bread, and let thine heart be merry.—1 Kings xxi. 7
The loaf is at the heart of our lives. It’s our connection with sustenance, community and creativity. It is the unsung hero uniting us in more ways than just providing us with a basic meal. Since time immemorial it has formed the heart of our communities.
This project brings together North Laine and London Road’s past, present and future bread baking traditions to create and record a public collective memory, ways to encourage the everyday act of making bread in the home again, enabling people to connect through the physical act of Breaking Bread together.
Some lovely images to view from Brighton & Hove’s baking history including two new postcards with favourite bread recipes we’ve created especially for this Breaking Bread project.
