* update 12.6.2007: I want to thank Joao Pedro from his Blog : Ardeu -padaria (visit him ,it's written in portuguess) who wrote me,after reading this post ".. I have found one where you mentioned that you were not sure about the name of a Portuguese bread. Well, the name is "Broa de milho" , broa is one type of hard bread which can be sweet and eaten in special occasions or the salty version like the one you have baked , which is part of our everyday bread, and also used in some recipes of meat and fish cooked in the oven. Milho is the portuguese word for corn..." - Thank you ,Joao Pedro,you are welcome , so now we know his name .. ! :-)
