I’m moving my blog to Wordpress. You can now find Salty Bread here.
Same blog. Different location.
See you there!
Salty Bread comes from Dante Alighieri's masterpiece, The Divine Comedy. Florentines like Dante were used to eating bread made without salt. Living in exile meant, among other things, eating foreign-tasting, salty bread. "You shall leave everything you love most. . . . You are to know the bitter taste of others' bread, how salty it is, and know how hard a path it is for one who goes ascending and descending others' stairs" (Paradiso, XVII, 55-60).
