Activity description
Bread is and will always be important, and it’s even more relevant in those times where there is lack of food. Making bread used to be a great ritual, where grandmothers used to beat the dough over and over again - before, they used to bless this food and ask God for a good batch. 

To eat bread for a whole week, this dough had to be made in large quantities. Do you know how they used to make bread, back in the day? Now you can learn with this great activity, where not only the bread is the center of this experience, but you’ll also learn about the culture and history around this amazing food.
