The Bread Lesson, A Second Course

I am doing a crash course in bread for some fellow classicists this weekend. I am really excited and I hope it all works out well. My last lesson was so much fun that I hope this one can live up to it. Instead of two I am teaching seven people so it should be quite the event. Catullus II might come over to help with the preparation so that I can make enough loaves at different stages that my friends can practice the different techniques. It is possible that Catullus II might take some photos of the bread and I'm hoping she'll let me post them. Wish me good luck!


  1. My baking is not the problem: I need a crash course in the classics. Please do a long and detailed post on the Fornacalia.

    1. Wow, the Fornacalia looks really interesting (although I cannot imagine that it was particularly joyful to walk through a city full of burning spelt). I'll do some research and get back to you.
