This week’s episode dives into regional bread and grains. The show was inspired by a listener question about whether there is a history of salt rising bread in Gullah Geechee culture. The closest thing Matthew knows of is rice bread, calling it salt rising bread’s “country cousin.” He shares culinary variations on rice bread and talks about the history of rice in the region and the reason Confederate soldiers relied on rice bread during the Civil War. Matthew is inspired by the taste of a place and shares tips for finding local grains near you and experimenting with them when making any bread recipe. Matthew’s recipe for rice bread is coming soon!
