I really love the breads in German speaking countries like Germany, Austria and Switzerland. We don't usually eat bread in my country that's why we don't have that much varieties of how breads are baked/done. It wasn't hard for me to shift to eating bread when I came to work here coz there's a lot of kinds to choose from, so with cheese. Bu then, I found out that I couldn't eat so much as I couldn't digest yeast and lactose. Bread and cheese are no, nos.:)

Oh I like bread but not all kinds. Some are my favorite like buns, sweet buns, and some italian bread in the subway. yum. Here in Goa, people eat lot of bread. There is a bread boy who will be on the bicycle everyday in the morning at 7am and in the afternoon at 4pm and 6pm. He will be blowing a horn, so the people know that bread is coming. I Bought 6 buns yesterday and I was upset because the size of the bun is decreased. BeforE I used to eat 2 buns and would go so full, but yesterday I ate 4 still i was not full.. the price of things are increasing and quantity decreasing. good day to you.

hi riyauro, blowing of horn by a bread man sounds familiar. Some parts in my country is the same. It is only during breakfast or mid-afternoon snacks where people eat bread at home. This kind of bread is similar to that of a baguett but smaller, softer and sweeter. For breakfast, it is usually filled in with soft and salty white cheese out of water buffalo's milk, partnered with either a hot cup of chocolate or of course coffee. During snack time, it would be eaten usually with stir fried noodles with mixed meat and vegetables. Otherwise bread is not the staple food but rice.:) Thanks for your response. When I think about food there is just too much to write about it. One of the best ways to actually get to know someone's culture.:)

yeah it is best way to know others culture. In Fiji we normally have boiled cassava and dalo, wow with nice dip. I miss those since have not found it here in Goa. We in Fiji don't use coconut power in cooking that much but here in Goa every dish has coconut in it. Even the vegetables. I was surprised to see it. I have learned how tp cook 3 dishes and when I go home I want to make my people taste it and I am sure they will like the new taste. good day to you.

Have you eaten bread from the United States? Someone told me its too sweet. Of course I don't notice probably because I'm used to it, but it makes me curious about what the other countries bread tastes like. Maybe I'll try some German too.

I have never been to the United States cupkitties. There are imported breads from there but it is always different when you are finally in that country eating it that is why I couldn't judge it. When I was back home, there were European breads which were imported from here but they never tasted the same as the ones I have tried here already. So, go and travel and eat your heart out.:)

Hey there! I never tasted German speaking countries' breads... But I do love eating other breads.. Bread is yummy with a lot of things... Cheese, jam, sausages, etc... That's so sad to hear that you can't digest yeast and lactose.. :( I was just learning about people with those kinds of sicknesses in my health school and I never actually knew a person who had like that.. Just curious what does happen when you eat too much yeast or lactose?
