Melba Toast
o  A staple since prehistoric times, bread is made from grains that have been ground into flour or meal, moistened and kneaded into a dough, and then baked.
o  Unleavened flat breads have been eaten since Neolithic times (10,000 )
o  Except Asia, where the preferred grain is rice, bread has long been a world wide staple.
o  The discovery of fermentation is attributed to the Egyptians, who also invented baking ovens.
o  Bread is high in complex carbohydrates and a good source of B vitamins.
o  Whole grain bread is higher in protein, has twice the fiber, and generally has more vitamins and minerals than white bread.
o  Grains, seeds, nuts and fruit can be added to bread for flavor and texture.
o  Unleavened bread (e.g. matzo) uses no leavening and therefore is quite flat.
o  Quick breads require no kneading and use baking soda, baking powder or eggs to leaven the bread.
o  A yeast batter bread uses strenuous beating instead of kneading to the same end.
o  Made with a mixed wheat and rye dough, the light rye breads are popular in the United States.
o  Dark rye breads are common in Europe.

About the Melba Toast :
Melba toast is a very dry, crisp, thinly sliced toast often served with soups and salads, or topped with melted cheese. It is named after Dame Nellie Melba, the stage name of Australian opera singer Helen Porter Mitchell. The term is thought to date back to 1897, a year when the singer was very ill and this kind of toast became a staple of her diet.

Melba toast is made by lightly toasting bread in the normal way. Once the outsides of the bread are slightly firm, it is removed from the toaster and then each slice is cut in half "longitudinally" with a bread knife to make two slices each half the thickness. These two thin slices are then toasted again to make Melba Toast.
