You’d have to be slightly peckish to tackle one of these man-sized loaves of Afghan bread on sale at a bakery in Kabul. The bread is baked by shaping the dough and then sticking it to the wall of a tandoor, a cylindrical oven made of bricks. People usually tear the bread into shreds and  use the bread as though its a fork to scoop up their food during dinner.
