Denmark: Ninety master bakers are involved in a challenge to produce a new recipe for communion wafers.
We have never tried anything like this before,Svendborg baker Gerner Pedersen said.It's very exciting. I think I will go for a baguette made out of a mixture of wheat and rye flour. That would give a good, strong taste of bread.
Clergy are less impressed with the efforts to improve Jesus' flavour:
Copenhagen deacon Finn Laugesen said he wished the bakers all the best.But for as long as I have been responsible for the communion wafers, I've gone for the most neutral taste I could find,he said.After all, the bread should symbolize the body of Jesus, and the wafer shouldn't be getting all the attention. Just imagine if the pastor at the altar would say 'This is the body of Jesus Christ. Would you like that with chocolate, vanilla or strawberry taste?'
Body of Christ gets new improved flavour: Funen bakers have taken up the challenge to find a new recipe for communion wafers - Copenhagen Post, 3rd March 2005 (thanks to Sister Edith Myflesh S.P.I.).
