Looking at the Past - European Bread Museum

On Tuesday 6th November, Year 7 visited the European Bread Museum that is located in Varnavas, Marathonas and is the largest of its kind in Europe.

Having wandered through the small rooms, we discovered how the less fortunate families used to live in the old times and appreciated our modern way of living including all its advantages and drawbacks.

We were also astounded by the 520 different types of beautifully embellished bread from all over Greece and Europe as well.

As bread was, and continues, to be an integral part of our civilization, culture and tradition and an indispensable symbol of care and nourishment, I was particularly keen on learning about the traditional way the bread was processed.

Needless to say, I was very proud of myself for having prepared my own ingredients for making bread in the old-fashioned way.

At the end of the day, like most of my classmates, I left the museum eagerly anticipating the outcome of my effort, when the bread had been baked at home in the oven.
