Bread Song

Breads sing. When you take hot bread out from the oven and leave them in the baking pan, and if you listen close enough, you might hear their song. It is a delicate, magical melody that sometimes sounds like the world quietly sighing under the weight of your feet. The breads sing because their crusts contract upon cooling, so they make this crackling sound that transposes into a melodious song in a baker’s ear.

Bread’s sing when their crusts crack. They don’t whine, moan or cry. They sing.
