I would send her to the Florilegium.org files.  There is a whole 
category of FOODS-BREADS.

And I'm kind of fuzzy too.  [hugs]

I have "history of bread" (author and book under a pile of books currently yikes) and I have an Elizabeth David book on baking and it's history. I have a ton of books scattered in my house, but these are the ones I could think of off the top of my head. Head is still a little fuzzy since I lost Huette, so I apologize for sounding like a bonehead.
