M.F.K. Fisher
“Perhaps this war will make it simpler for us to go back to some of the old ways we knew before we came over to this land and made the Big Money. Perhaps, even, we will remember how to make good bread again.

It does not cost much. It is pleasant: one of those almost hypnotic businesses, like a dance from some ancient ceremony. It leaves you filled with peace, and the house filled with one of the world's sweetest smells. But it takes a lot of time. If you can find that, the rest is easy. And if you cannot rightly find it, make it, for probably there is no chiropractic treatment, no Yoga exercise, no hour of meditation in a music-throbbing chapel, that will leave you emptier of bad thoughts than this homely ceremony of making bread.”
M.F.K. Fisher, How to Cook a Wolf

Kenneth Grahame, The Wind in the Willows

Fyodor Dostoevsky
“Christ knew that by bread alone you cannot reanimate man. If there were no spiritual life, no ideal of Beauty, man would pine away, die, go mad, kill himself or give himself to pagan fantasies. And as Christ, the ideal of Beauty in Himself and his Word, he decided it was better to implant the ideal of Beauty in the soul. If it exists in the soul, each would be the brother of everyone else and then, of course, working for each other, all would also be rich. Whereas if you give them bread, they might become enemies to each other out of boredom.”
Fyodor Dostoevsky

“My feet are even more numb. The bakery is located downtown, and we live quite a distance from it.
I get there and enter it. The smell of the bread makes me forget the bitterness, the cold and the distance. My feet feel the warmth of the place and relax; I feel relief and smile at a friendly, good-natured face.
" Good morning, Carolina!" On her long locks of hair, there lay a trail of light coming in through the window behind the counter. " Can I have a pound of bread, please?"
Carolina, smiling at me, with an air of shyness and deep gratitude, turns to pick out the loaf of bread for me.
It is round, has flour on the surface, and is still warm!”

“It was while here that I got my first lessons in baking bread in the ground. The method was this: A shallow hole was dug in the sand and a fire lighted in it and allowed to burn out, thoroughly heating the ground all around it. While the ground was being heated, bread was made of sour dough, put between two gold-pans, and allowed to rise. Then the hot ashes and dirt were scooped out of the hole and the gold pans put in and covered with ashes and hot sand. The bread was allowed to stay in about an hour: if left in too long it wouldn’t burn, but the crust would get thicker. The loaf came out a rich golden brown and very delicious. This of course was only done when conditions were favorable.”
Arthur T Walden, A Dog

“The shortest method to keep people away from Justice and Truth is to starve them. When individuals agree to do whatever to fill their stomachs, there will be little left of human ideals. Dungeons, Chains, Whistleblowers and sticks in the hands of Cowards come into play to starve them, not to let them even have a loaf of bread.”
Jeyhun Aliyev Silo, To Be Tried As A Jew

Jessa Maxwell
“This is an herb boule." I gesture to the oven where my dough is still proving.
"Can we see it to get a quick shot?" Archie asks. I hesitate but slide the drawer open for just a moment, releasing a warm yeasty plume into the air, and then quickly slide it shut. It leaves behind the fragrance of parsley, cilantro, and basil, some of the herbs I've mixed into my boule.
"And these are my cinnamon buns. I've used my own hand-ground rye flour to balance the sweetness and specially sourced Vietnamese cinnamon and just a touch of cardamom.”
Jessa Maxwell, The Golden Spoon
