Description

Legend has it that buns were developed to enable poor people to buy bread with dignity. Dignity for the buyer—who could not afford a loaf and for whom it was either humiliating or impossible to buy just a slice or two—and dignity for the bun—which was sold with its crust and crumb beautifully intact, a small piece of perfection to be shared as graciously as a big loaf. Whatever their history, we can find buns in just about every country in the world. There are sweet buns and savory buns; steamed buns and baked buns; stuffed buns and plain buns; buns for special occasions and buns for every day. Take a journey around the world and explore bun culture in depth with Jane’s delicious, foolproof and fun recipes.
