Because we need a food post

Bread in Uzbekistan is a big deal.

Every day, all day, bakeries are pumping out huge round loaves of bread. But this ain’t no Wonder Bread operation. All the loaves are made by hand, stamped with a pretty design in the center, and sprinkled with seeds.

Then it’s one guy’s job to stick his head into a hot brick oven to slap the flat loaves onto the walls. Over and over.

Fortunately, no one has to use his hands to get the hot loaves out.

Heck, with the paddle, it looks easy, and not like you’re baking your face and hands into shoe leather.

Next: more market food.
