Event: World Bread Day

Event announcement: World Bread Day

The International Union of Bakers and Bakers-Confectioners (UIB) have chosen 16 October 2006 as World Bread Day:

World Bread Day '06 (poster by Osker Weiss) Staple food for some, luxury or modern dietary food for others – bread in itself means so much that it deserves a World Day in its honour! The World Bread Day wants to provide an opportunity to talk about bread and bakers, to find out about their history, their importance as well as their future.

And Zorra (Kochtopf) has invited food bloggers to help celebrate the occasion. She wrote:
