Reading Room

Bread and bread-making have the power to connect and inspire us. From poetry and music to social science research and mediated realities; from the hands kneading through the smells, to the memories and dreams, bread is both sustenance – in the most literal sense – and a powerful metaphor. The Reading Room is where we read bread and about bread, it is the place for texts and textures. As an inevitable presence, and sometimes longing, in social realities, bread “lives” as a text, but also in texts – scroll through the drop-down menu of categories under this tab to link to bread-related texts that inspire us, muse us, and connect us.
