All of the bakers were hard at work from early on, making sure that they readied the bags for morning buyers like me! There were a variety of breads being made at the various stands and I was eager to try each and every one.
The World of Bread at Mistura was set up very differently than years prior. Honestly, I am not sure that I like this year’s set up better than prior years. I think there were more machines, more activity in years past and certainly more displays showing the variety and creativity of the breadmakers throughout Peru. This year, the areas were much less decorated, less “creative” breads were being made and the bakers did not seem to be specialty bakers.
Nevertheless, there were some incredible breads to be purchased and eaten in the World of Bread at Mistura! They had variety bags that started at S/.3 which included about 6 breads. We bought some of each so that we could try to vast variety. My favorites? Pan de Maiz, Pan de Anís, Pan de Maiz Morado and Pan Chancay. Delicious!
