The story of bread

A fascinating and slightly frightening tale, given Miss Sunbeam here.

Oddly enough, bread is the key element in the foundation of civlisation and it came about because of beer.  If you think about it, the steps in making bread are pretty complex and getting from wheat to bread seems pretty improbable.  What actually happened was that mixing flour, yeast, and water produced a nice little lump that you could let sit, then break up into a pot of water to ferment if you wanted a quick (and disgusting) pint.  All it took is some drunken Babylonian getting the munchies and baking said lump and voila!  Bread.
