[Breadmaking is] one of those almost hypnotic businesses, like a dance from some ancient ceremony. It leaves you filled with one of the world's sweetest smells... there is no chiropractic treatment, no Yoga exercise, no hour of
meditation in a music-throbbing chapel. that will leave you emptier of bad thoughts than this homely ceremony of making bread."
"No yoga exercise, no meditation in a chapel filled with music will rid you of your blues better than the humble task of making your own bread."
— M.F.K. Fisher (The Art of Eating)
