Baked, grilled, steamed or fried, bread is often called the "staff of life." It has been a basic foodstuff for a variety of cultures for millenia. Bread isn't just a source of nutrition. It has taken on remarkable cultural and symbolic significance, from its inclusion as an element of the Christian Eucharist to its use as a metaphor for money.
