Bread Trails

With the recent rise of ancient grains and artisan bakeries, lemi take you on a journey across the world to discover one of the its most staple foods.

๐—”๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฝ๐—ฎ๐˜€ is a cornmeal bread hailing from pre-Columbian Latin America. The base is ๐˜ฎ๐˜ข๐˜ด๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฑ๐˜ข (cornflour cooked in water, much like Italian ๐˜ฑ๐˜ฐ๐˜ญ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฏ๐˜ต๐˜ข) mixed with water and oil, and formed into a round patty that cooks to a cake-like consistency: golden and crispy on the outside, fluffy and spongy on the inside. Bonus points? Itโ€™s gluten-free. The stuffing varies from simply melted cheese and beans to steak and avocado. A Colombian classic is shredded chicken and avocado, while in Venezuela you can find deep-fried arepas filled with eggs. Theyโ€™re a staple food in Colombia, Venezuela and Tenerife. In recent years arepas have gained world-popularity, with arepas cafรฉs, restaurants and food trucks popping up all around the globe.

My first time trying areas! I recommend the ๐—ฏ๐—ฒ๐—ฒ๐—ณ ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฝ๐—ฎ๐˜€, with extra sauce and a generous amount of jalapenos to go along with it. As for the shredded chicken version, the texture was a little too close to tuna flakes for my liking.

When it comes to bread, there is nothing as good as a crispy, fluffy, fragrant, freshly baked ๐—ฏ๐—ฎ๐—ด๐˜‚๐—ฒ๐˜๐˜๐—ฒ. Not all baguettes are created equal, though, and in South East Asia getting your hands on a good one without breaking the bank, can be a real challenge. ๐—ฃ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐˜€ ๐——รฉ๐—น๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐—ฒ, though a fast-food chain, imports all its bread directly from France, with people assuring you it has the best baguettes in Manila.

๐—•๐—ฎ๐—ด๐˜‚๐—ฒ๐˜๐˜๐—ฒ๐˜€ have a lot going on for them. Not only the source of the flour and the water, but even the way the dough is worked, can all radically change its taste. And Parisian baker ๐—Ÿ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐˜† ๐— ๐—ผ๐—ป๐˜๐—ถ knew it well, when in 2019 he snatched the first prize of the annual ๐˜Ž๐˜ณ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜ฅ ๐˜—๐˜ณ๐˜ช๐˜น ๐˜ฅ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ญ๐˜ข ๐˜‰๐˜ข๐˜จ๐˜ถ๐˜ฆ๐˜ต๐˜ต๐˜ฆ.

๐—ฃ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฒ ๐—ฐ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐˜€๐—ฎ๐˜‚ is a thin and crisp flatbread with a 3000-year-old history. Sardinian shepherds often left their homes for months at a time, so they invented a bread they could carry with them and could be stored for up to a year (much like elven ๐˜ญ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฃ๐˜ข๐˜ด). It also makes one mighty souvenir. In Italian, pane carasau is also called ๐˜ค๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜ต๐˜ข ๐˜ฅ๐˜ช ๐˜ฎ๐˜ถ๐˜ด๐˜ช๐˜ค๐˜ข, referring to how thin the dough is, a music sheet can be read through it.
