Who doesn't love the smell of freshly baked bread? To bring bread bakers and patisserie lovers together, the 2nd International Bread Festival will be held in Ankara's CerModern between Oct. 12 and 14.

In the Anatolian lands, which has a long tradition of bread baking, the festival aims to focus on the different bread cultures and uses of wheat, prevalent in the region for centuries.

During the festival, different types of bread baked all over Turkey will be put on display for tasting. Different bread baking techniques will also be demonstrated.
