"How can a nation be great if its bread tastes like Kleenex?" With this Julia Child quote as his epigraph war cry, bread maven William Alexander begins his globe-hopping quest for the perfectly baked loaf of bread. Not content to simply sample store-bought treasures, he tracks his wheat treats back to their fields of origin and the flour-mills and brick ovens that give them their unique qualities. His 52 Loaves is both entertaining and informative; along the way, we actually acquire his obsession. Infinitely more rewarding than any fast food sandwich.
