"Liz Clark's keen interest in travel, history, and ability to 'tell a charming story from her childhood' is deliciously expressed in her prose as well as her recipes that are distinct and unmistakably accessible to even the most timid bread baker. Her mouthwatering bread recipes gave rise to an urgent desire for a [Norman Rockwell 'heel' of warm bread slathered with farm-churned butter]."

    TO TASTE A MEMORY

    FRESH BREAD COMPANION was written to capture a special memory and feeling. As I tried each bread in the book I felt as if author Liz Clark was my companion. When I tasted the bread I thought of my mothers bread. When my niece tasted it her reaction was, 'It is like tasting a memory.' It was the essence of what we both think of as 'home.' It would be nice to be Liz Clark's companion in future books.
