“The dictionary makes little distinction between hunger and appetite, but we tend to understand that hunger is the need to eat, almost entirely physical, while appetite is the desire to eat, stimulated by smell, sight, or the memory of certain foods or even the desire to satisfy emotional needs. Hunger indicates necessity; weakness is the result if it is unsatisfied. Appetite has more to do with interest and allure. When the two are combined we have someone very ready to eat. The problem is to keep them away from the bread.” —Taken from the book Life is Meals by James and Kay Salter
Below is a recipe from the Inn at Sunrise Point on the Maine coast for a hearty, chewy, and satisfying bread that is perfect for morning toast and adds an extra specialness to an otherwise ordinary breakfast of scrambled or fried eggs.*
Layered with sweet cream butter and fresh blueberry, raspberry, or strawberry jam, this special homemade multi-grain bread is hard to stay away from!
*The egg frittata that the bread accompanied is with sausage, asiago cheese and fresh sliced slightly sautéed pear. It was unusually delicious!
