JACOBS BAKERY IN GOA.....

BREAD!!!!! I LOVE BREAD....

Bread is eaten extensively in Goa , especially for breakfast and also with meals when either chicken or mutton gravy is cooked.
Its called PAV in the local language and comes in various shapes (will make a post on that some time).

As lots of things have changed in India so has the process of making bread.
but some bakeries still retain the charm of baking bread by hand .
now in Goa you have a handful of bakeries which have a traditional oven built in the wall where huge amounts of fresh bread is baked daily.

I was fortunate enough to be able to visit a bakery at Kalapur in Goa , my hubby's cousin Suraj organized my visit to this bakery so that i could click some pictures and share them with you.

The pictures would've been better if they did not depict the ubiquitous multi-use of newspapers that we only see in India. Doesn't anybody ever think about the lead content in newspaper ink when they use it for food related things????

These were great pictures. It reminded me of the time I stayed with my friends family and this guy would cycle up selling his warm bread and we'd have it with freshly churned butter. One of the best meals i've ever had.
