Bread is a staple food around the world that is prepared by baking a dough of flour and water. It may be leavened or unleavened. Salt, fat and a leavening agent such as yeast are common ingredients, though breads may contain a range of other ingredients: milk, egg, sugar, spice, fruit (such as raisins), vegetables (such as onion), nuts (such as walnuts) or seeds (such as poppy seeds).
Bread is one of the oldest prepared foods, dating back to the Neolithic era. The development of leavened bread can probably also be traced to prehistoric times. Sliced bread began to be developed from 1912 onwards.
Fresh bread is prized for its taste, aroma and texture. Retaining its freshness is important to keep it appetizing. Bread that has stiffened or dried past its prime is said to be stale. Modern bread is often wrapped in paper or plastic film, or stored in an airtight container such as a breadbox to keep it fresh longer. Bread that is kept in warm, moist environments is prone to the growth of mold. It becomes stale more quickly in the low temperature of a refrigerator, although by keeping it cool, mold is less likely to grow.
The inner, soft part of bread is referred to as the crumb, which is not to be confused with small bits of bread that often fall off, called crumbs. The latter term is in common use, while crumb is an esoteric word used mainly by culinary professionals. The outer hard portion of bread is referred to as the crust.

O pão nosso, de cada dia, que por sua vez, também combina com o peixe. Bem, vamos deixar os aspectos filosóficos, um pouco de lado, e vamos à foto. Está muito bem feita, com excelente nitidez e as cores muitos naturais. Com toda sinceridade, nunca vi um pão tão bem retratado. Parabéns, Consuelo

nosso famoso pãozinho de sal de cada dia, que por sinal vai subir bem de preço nas próximas semanas, que vê ele assim nem imagina o trabalho que da pra fazer... Bela foto.
Parabéns e Abraço!

I think that this photo should be placed in the treklense and no in the trekearth.
I can not see anything special...

Como já descrito pela Consuelo e na oração matinal : " O Pão Nosso de cada dia " ...
Parabéns, mestre Raimundo.

Fotos macro sempre me atraem.
Gostei bastante da composicao.
Porem faco um comentario, o fundo mais branco teria valorizado mais a imagem
Da forma com que está, parece que esta chamando a atencao.
Mas é uma bela imagem.

I think, that a bread can tell us very mutch about the country where it was baked. So, your picture is very interesting in many respects.
