Hi. My name is Amber and I am a student at Uconn. I am doing an article for a journalism class on all aspects of bread. I have emailed some of you on the website individually and it was recommended that i post a new thread so i thought i would give it try. I am trying to include any aspects of bread that I can. I have thought of these questions so if anyone is able to answer a few or if possible all of the questions. If you do answer the questions can you include your name, occupation, and place of work so I am able to site it in the article. For anyone who is able to help me I would be more than happy to email you the finished article. Thanks so much, I really appreciate it.
