The history of bakery is 8 thousand years ago; it goes back to the days when people crushed the grains among the stones, and then added the water to them and spread the dough on a flat rock and cooked it on fire. Primitive man would shred the grains he had collected, otherwise he could neither chew nor digest. It is certain that the people who developed bread and bakery first went through a series of trial and error processes.

The Egyptians enjoyed baking, and moreover, for them bread was a symbol of their lives. Bread was so important to the Egyptians that a piece of bread was put in their graves so that those who died would not be deprived of their lives in the future. Bread was the main food as well as salary. Those who built the pyramids were given bread in exchange for their labor. A person's financial status was measured by how many nuts he had.

They used yeast obtained from brewing to ferment and shape bread doughs. However, they could not figure out how the dough was fermented. The Egyptians started to process bread loaf like an artwork by using different flours and finding various shapes.

It is widely believed that an Egyptian baker did not knead a piece of dough from his forgetfulness, then added it to the next dough, thus developing a method by chance.

The ancient Egyptians exported surplus grain to Greece. The Greeks learned bread from the Egyptians.

In Greece and the Roman Empire, bread became the main foodstuff of the people over time. When eggs and oil began to be added, bread was among the luxury consumables. The more white breads adorned the table of the rich, and the breads with little salt. The first mechanical mixer is considered to have been developed by a Roman. Horsepower was used as energy source.
