Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Dunaway grew up in a family of bread bakers, and shortly after a friend encouraged her to sell her breads, she found herself making 1000 loaves a week in her home kitchen. Today she and her husband are the owners of Buona Forchetta Hand Made Breads in Los Angeles, a professional bakery where her wonderful loaves are still made by hand. She prefers the texture of bread made with little or no kneading, and she likes loaves with a high ratio of crust to crumb (the inside of a loaf), e.g., baguettes; long, thin filoncini; and ladder-shaped fougasse. Illustrated with Dunaway's own charming line drawings, her book provides recipes for dozens of breads, including sweet loaves, and pizzas, along with many ways for using leftovers, from bread salads to bread puddings. There are a number of good artisan bread books available, but with its user-friendly recipes and readable text, this is recommended for most baking collections.

Barbara Kafka
It is always a pleasure to meet a creative mind on a roll. Suzanne Dunaway has re-created the art of bread baking. As an autodidact, I appreciate the fresh way she approaches what has seemed to be a tried and true method. I think you will enjoy it too. It will simplify your life.

Amy Scherber
Suzanne Dunaway's friendly, enthusiastic voice and her love for bread radiate from the pages of her book. This passionate, personal journey weaves gracefully between Italy, Texas, and California, to teach the reader fun, easy techniques for baking. Even timid bakers should be inspired to roll up their sleeves and try these tantalizing recipes.

Judy Zeidler
Suzanne Dunaway has alywas combined her passion for food with her talent for creating wonderful art. And long before most Americans were aware of the different breads of Italy she was sharing them at home with friends. Now—at last—you can re-create some of her recipes in your own kitchen.

Joe Ortiz
Many of my personal bread heroes have been using less kneading to achieve the moist, creamy crumb we've grown tolove in the best rustic loaves. Herein, Suzanne Dunaway translates the technique in a clear, simple method for the home baker.
