This project attempts to re-creating the taste of ancient Egyptian bread. It began with a successful attempt to create a sourdough starter. Emmer wheat, one of the main grains cultivated by ancient Egyptians, was used as the flour for the bread. The overall project to create ancient Egyptian bread was also successful. Further experiments would help achieve the goal of re-creating the accurate style of ancient Egyptian bread by focusing on re-creating the conical mold it was baked in.
