I love the bread that you can buy at the Lyttelton farmers market. It's real. The only ingredients are flour, yeast, water and salt. The sourdough bread lasts nearly a week.
Now that isn't the same as the bread that you buy from the supermarket. The bread that is pure, chemical white and probably lasts for months because of all the additives. That bread has no real taste. It's like 3D paper with holes in it. You can squis it up into a tiny ball.
I used to do that with a slice of this white bread, and then I would put it in a jam jar and lower it into the River Piddle (for real) where I would catch minnows. Minnows love rubbishy bread. But I don't.
