Bread, Pastry, and Cakes

  • Alan Littlewood


Bread, pastry, and cakes are very much a part of the snack food scene. Bread was one of the two ingredients in what was arguably the first definable snack, and as basis of the sandwich it has remained so ever since. Furthermore, the number of varieties of bread has increased greatly, extending the variety and choice of sandwich snack to an almost limitless extent. The slice of bread has been extended to the soft roll and from there to the burger buns; the toasted sandwich is another variant and yet another is the Scandinavian-derived “open” sandwich where the quantity of the bread component is reduced.
