Yummy News: Europe Says We're the No. 1 Bread Baker!

Shalom Girls & Boys:

Yummy, yummy, yummy, I have great news for your tummy. Israel took first place in the European 2012 Bread Baking Cup in Rimini, Italy.

I can't believe that we beat the French. They're an unbelievable baking power! And what about Germany?  They're considered tops too, and we beat them. Yup, we won 2 out of 4 categories: Innovative bread with a health focus, and baked dessert.

To be honest, I do believe it. I've got a lot of frequent flyer miles between bakeries, outdoor markets, indoor supermarkets and restaurants around Israel, and I've got to tell you that just the aroma of our freshly baked breads knocks the wings off of me. We Israelis know how to bake and break bread. It's a tradition dating back to Biblical times, but I'm not going to get into that. Instead, I'm going to give you a mini bread tour of Israel. WARNING: YOUR MOUTH WILL WATER!
Presenting Pitot, Lafa, all types of baygelah, and of course, Challah.

This is a just a small taste of all the breads we bake. You have to come over here to really appreciate our bread baking skill. I just discovered that we even have  a special Purim prune and chocolate bread. Try that out for your Mishloach Manot. With an imagination like ours, no wonder we continue to count our blessings of Hamotzi Lehem Min Ha'aretz.
