The Breads of Egypt

Hello everyone,

I would like to divert your attention to my blog and my "The Breads of Egypt" project, where I attempt to document the variety of bread in Egypt with accurate and well-tested recipes.

I have a few recipes on it already and there's a few more planned. Would love to get some feedback from some seasoned bakers if you have the time to try out a recipe. Even if you're not inclined to, you might just learn a thing or two about Egypt.

your site is super interesting and, yes, gives insight into more than a thing or two about Egypt. I had no idea Egypt had such a vibrant bread culture. Thanks.

I also enjoyed browsing the bread recipes on your (very polished!) web site.

I will give your Eish Baladi a try at some point. Is it possible to cook it on the hotplate (griddle) instead of in the oven?

It might work. I never tried it. Maybe you should cook it on both sides to make sure it's cooked well all the way through.

This is really neat, thank you for doing this project and sharing!  I'll definitely look into trying some of these recipes in the next couple months.

You're welcome and good luck with the recipes. Let me know if you have any questions.

One of my fondest memories of Egypt was the bread!
