We never thought that 16th-century bread would be a trending topic on Instagram, but if anyone could make it so, it's Bethenny Frankel. After all, The Real Housewives of New York City alum often tackles food-centric topics on social media, and we've picked up a lot of tips from her feed. (Ask us how to properly put sauce on pasta!) So when the foodie shared a historical lesson on bread, we took note.
Bethenny filmed the Instagram Story while she was dining out at the Sarasota restaurant Jack Dusty. Her waiter was very keen to describe the rather unusual carb situation, which featured brown bread baked in a can. The server explained that this was a baking technique that started in the 1500s, and was popular with sailors. The baker who made the bread, Jack, is also the inspiration behind the restaurant's name. (He'd get dusty from the flour and baking ingredients, you see.)
"Good story!" Bethenny said. "Every piece of bread should have a story." That's not a bad piece of logic. And if you want to make your own bread in a can, click here for the recipe.
