Baking Bread, according to the Japanese

My sweet husband writes insightful, thought-provoking posts.

I write about food.

And, not to break with tradition, check out a page from the manual for the Hitachi bread machine I inherited from my mom:


  1. While I have never eaten Japanese bread and didn't know they were a bread baking nation, apparently they make happy bread. Like "Great cheese comes from happy cows, happy cows come from California".
    P.S.... I like food...

  2. The bread is happy in the end, but that step 5 looks a little brutal. I get the gas thing, little loaf of bread. You're in good company.

  3. I want to seek out and marry the (hopefully male, hopefully not old) illustrator for Hitachi.

  4. Haha! This diagram completes me.
