A Newfoundland tradition and essential ingredient in the classic dish, fish & brewis.
Hard Bread, also known as Hard tack, has been a dietary staple of Newfoundlanders for decades. Hard Bread was developed from the ancient sea biscuit which formed the basis of meals on fishing vessels and cargo ships prior to the 1840s when baking onboard was impossible. Due to its long life, hard bread was an ideal substitute for fresh bread.
