What was that novel that mentions grissini as a sexual metaphor?

I read a novel that has lots of sexual scenarios, one of which involves a "frigid" woman who is repeatedly offered grissini (breadsticks) by a waiter as a subliminally sexual seduction. There was another ongoing scene in which a woman was a research subject for testing orgasm response. Why? Because I can't remember and like the pirate with the steering wheel belt buckle, it's driving me nuts. Thanks!

What is this bread?

I was at a Mexican corner grocery last night, and on a whim bought this bread. It's really good, and I want to know what it is. It's really dense and wheaty, with a bit of sweetness (kind of like a honey wheat.) The only label is the one in the picture (enhanced). I've tried searching the word in label, and get nothing! What is it?

Sourdough shortage?

I've been living on the road for the past seven months hitting just about everywhere in the South East US and wherever I go I try to find sourdough bread. In years past sourdough bread was easy to come by. This past year or so it's become nearly impossible and when I do find it it lacks any of the sour flavor I'm craving. Is this bread available in other parts of the country? Do people not like the sour flavor? Is there some kind of weird global warming yeast die-off going on that nobody told me about?

Why does my wheat smell like beets?

Did my flour go bad? I have some wheat flour from a small local farm. I used it to make bread today and it has an odd smell. I'm wondering if it's still okay to use or if I'll be tripping like a medieval peasant if I eat it. [more inside]

Let us break bread(s?) together

Is the plural of a variety of bread, "breads" or does it remain bread? "I scale, mix and bake various breads from scratch for a busy café and catering orders."
