Just about every culture on earth has a special, unique bread recipe. Mostly they share a few things in common; flour, water, some salt, a rising agent and time. Yet they are as  different as the countries that claim them.

Below you'll find quite a few doughy recipes, including crumpets, naan, Middle Eastern flat bread and of course, a good ol' white loaf.
