Museum at the American Institute of Baking

Submitted by on August 10, 2009 – 7:41 pmNo Comment

American Museum of BakingThis isn’t a stop for amateurs, Road Trip Foodies. This museum explores the history of commercial baking. There are samples of Egyptian bread and cakes that are almost 4000 years old, Roman bread and grain from the empire’s colonies in North Africa, and wood bread stamping tools from Byzantium. Most of the museum’s collection, however, focuses on North America, including a collection of books on baking (some of which are more than 200 years old). It was renamed the Harold M. Freund American Museum of Baking in 1998. It’s located at the American Institute of Baking, 1213 Bakers Way, Manhattan, Kansas. For information on tours, call 785:537-4750. Pictured is a large wooden Byzantine bread mark or seal called a cachet. Hand-carved, it’s 11 cm in diameter with designs in nine sections.
