A Stir The Pots Post

Bread  is often associated in religious themes of sharing. Pain de Lodève is  one such bread, a namesake from the French village of Lodève in the region of Occitaine. The unique story of the town's patron saint are woven into the vocabulary of the manufacturing of this unshaped loaf, as well as a tale about local conflict involving butchers, bakers, wives and husbands, as well as martyrdom, part of a religious battle involving Catholics and Hugenots.  I offer my rendition below. Even without knowing the whole story, this is bread offers much on which to chew.
