How bread is made and sold in 27 countries around the world

Over the past few years bread has been gathering a rather negative reputation among the health-conscious community. But for millions of people, whose life is away from gluten-free tags, bread remain a staple food which is sometimes consumed during every meal of the day, as it has been for centuries. 

The way bread is made commercially nowadays is indeed a reason to ring an alarm about what is going inside our bellies. But if we look at traditional home preparation of bread around the world, it might paint a different picture.

We decided to take a peek into the bakeries and bread shops around the world which still follow traditional means of preparation. Here is our gallery: take a look how bread is being made and sold in 27 countries around the world.
