What is unleavened bread?

Flour, water and… that’s it!

I promise, nothing more. Except for a very tasty crunch. Matzo is unleavened bread, i.e. it does not contain any leaven. It is baked in a very short time.

Did you know that the French name of Matzo (“Pain Azyme”), “AZYME” comes from ancient Greek and is composed of the privative “A” which means “WITHOUT”, and “Zumè” which means “LEAVEN”.

It is one of the oldest breads of humanity. Unleavened matzo bread dates back to the time of the Hebrews. When they fled from Egypt, the Hebrews baked their bread dough without having time to let it rise; this is how Unleavened Matzo Bread was born, a recipe that has lasted through the ages until today!
