Definition of Know Your Baker
Turning the basic ingredients of flour, yeast, water and salt into good bread takes artistry, finesse. What a good baker can produce with these simple ingredients is nothing short of alchemy. Such bread is meant to be enjoyed fresh.
If you don't insist on artistry, then you have to replace it with sugar, preservatives, cheap fats and industrial ingredients, like diglycerides. Because without artistry, flour, water, yeast and salt aren't very palatable.
