kind of bread

Postby Brazilian dude » Sun Jul 16, 2006 3:31 pm

Can anybody give me a hand and take a look [url=http://images.google.com.br/images?svnum=10&hl=pt-BR&lr=&q=p%C3%A3o+de+forma[]here[/url] (especially the second picture) and tell me what is the name in English? We call it pão de forma, bread of mould (forma pronounced with a closed o, not to be mistaken for forma with an open o, meaning form or shape. Some writers differentiate the two by writing the first as fôrma. Just for your information. :wink: ).

Are you talking about the second picture from the left on the top row? White bread (or Pan Blanco). That's what it looks like to me. A loaf of sliced white bread. Or "a loaf of bread" as we say. The second picture on left going down is a sandwich (or emparedado?) Does that help?

Yeah, I think that's the name, but I thought there was something more exact than that. But that pretty much says it all. Thank you.

White bread, sliced bread, Wonder bread, light bread, sandwich bread, and from some older folks--store-bought bread.

White bread? Blackguard?, looks like today's the day for marginal racist-sounding words. Do you suppose anyone will take a fence?

Why ask for English only? In Swedish, it's formbröd, from at least 1925. In households, it is baked in a långpanna.

Obviously, form = form, bröd = bread, lång = long, panna = pan.

Our 'loaf' is a limpa, but used to be lev, which might have survived in dialects. Finnish has borrowed it as leipä.

but then it seems like bottom feeders are always looking for a little umbrage to abscond with.

Dude, this map shows a couple (actual) cities close to where an old friend worked: Plano and Sandwich. His story goes that they're planning to add another town between them, called Bologna. (And they'll probably be using the type of bread you asked about.)
