A Crash Course on CreativityFRAMING AND REFRAMING-LOOK AT BREAD IN A DIFFERENT WAY-
BREAD CAN BE PERCEIVED IN MANY WAYS……. It is found almost everywhere and served/accompanied with almost everything. It has become such a common food type or we may have so much of it that we forget its true value and may end up throwing pieces of it into the rubbish can! BUT THERE’S MORE TO THAT WHICH WE SHOULDN’T FORGET ….
BREAD CAN BE PERCEIVED IN MANY WAYS….(2) BREAD has been the basis of our Christian/Orthodox religion whereby: we have Holy Communion with it we bake it and take it to church so as to bless our deceased ones at their memorials BREAD has been the basis of our parents’ generation who: grew up in poverty and ate it with sugar to fill up their stomachs Used it to create sandwiches for us to take to school and slowly grow up into adults
FOR US CYPRIOT HOME-MADE TRADITIONALBREAD CAN’T BE EXCLUDED FROM ANY EVENT
IT’S A MUST TO ENJOY IT WITH OLIVE OIL AND SUGAR!!
OTHER USES OF BREAD …. Therefore bread should not be thrown out especially in these times of Financial Crisis. There are poor families who would do anything to have just a piece of it to feed their children. There are two types of left-over bread: (1) that which has become very tough and not so soft when it is firstly bought or freshly baked AND (2) that which has cannot be eaten.SINCE we grew up giving great value to bread, and not underestimating it our team decided to re-use any left-over bread in several delicious, edible, and creative ways!
TOUGH AND NOT SO SOFT BREAD CAN BE TRANSPOSED AS BELOW: BEFORE AFTERMaking pizza has never been so easy! Plain bread can be used in place ofdough! And it’s equally delicious and appetizing!
TOUGH AND NOT SO SOFT BREAD CAN BE TRANSPOSED AS BELOW: BEFORE AFTERRecipe for Nuts!We cut the bread in slices, we sprinkle a slice with a little water and then in theoven for 1 hour in 180 Celsius.
TOUGH AND NOT SO SOFT BREAD CAN BE TRANSPOSED AS BELOW: BEFORE AFTERSpecial Recipe from our grandmother: We named it Katsoura!We cut the bread in slices, we sprinkle a slice with a little water, and we fry it inhot olive oil for 3 minutes. Then we apply some sugar and cinnamon on the sliceand its ready to be eaten
TOUGH AND NOT SO SOFT BREAD CAN BE TRANSPOSED AS BELOW: BEFORE AFTERSoup with bread!!Make your own soup and put the tough bread instead in small pieces.
INEDIBLE BREAD CAN BE TRANSPOSED AS BELOW Inedible bread, oddly enough, can be used for creating ornaments and decorative pieces. This is what our team has envisioned. Just by using the bread crumb and wood glue, you can create whatever your heart desires!
FIRST THINGS FIRST:We took our inedible bread and cut the bottompart to create a hole. Then we scooped out thecrumb.
GETTING BUSY, “BREAD STYLE” We layered the crumbs to dry and placed the hollowed loaf of bread to dry out. As you guessed it, we left nothing go to waste!
A HAND OF HELP: TEAM KNEADINGUsing our bread crumbs and plain wood glue, wekneaded them into a moldable dough that wasgoing into creating our bread artifacts.
CONCLUSION: FINAL WORDSThe value of bread should not be underestimatedor taken for granted. It has been, is, and will alwaysbe a basic necessity for past, present and futuregenerations. It doesn’t mean that because it iseasily accessible and found anywhere that we caneasily throw out any leftovers. Instead, there areplenty of ways to transform it into somethingdelicious as an evening snack or even a preserveddecoration in our homes or for charity sales-something which our team tried hard to emphasize.Whatever the result, no piece of bread shouldgo to waste for any reason!
