Overview

From the award-winning authors of Bread in Half the Time comes a complete guide to making nearly 100 European-style breads with the indispensable aid of your bread machine.

Nothing smells quite as wonderful as bread baking in the oven. Nothing tastes quite as good as a thick slice of fresh, warm homemade bread. And nothing can be quite as intimidating or time-consuming as mixing, kneading, raising, and baking that bread—until now!

With a bread machine to do all the hard work, and experts Linda West Eckhardt and Diana Collingwood Butts as guides, anyone can turn out a perfect sourdough, raisin pumpernickel, focaccia, or any other variety of classic European breads featured in this book. The trick is to use the machine for what it does best—mixing and kneading the dough that produces the loaves we all love so much. After letting the dough rise in the machine, you shape it by hand and bake it to perfection in the oven.

With Rustic European Breads from Your Bread Machine in hand, every home cook can become a master baker. Eckhardt and Butts provide not only an encyclopedic knowledge of their subject and foolproof step-by-step recipes, but also limitless, contagious enthusiasm. Their clear and thorough explanations will turn every home kitchen into an aromatic, appetite-satisfying European bakery.

Linda Eckhardt and Diana Collingwood Butts authored Bread in Half the Time, winner of the International Association of Culinary Professionals Award for Best Cookbook of the Year in 1991. Linda Eckhardt, author of over a dozen cookbooks, writes the monthly column “What's for Dinner” in Cooking Light Magazine and hosts a weekly program called Pie in the Sky on National Public Radio. Diana Collingwood Butts is the proprietor of Sugarbakers, a company that makes and sells designer cookies for special order.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Spelt burgers, spelt dumplings and spelt coffee are among the surprises in The Spelt Cookbook: Cooking with Nature's Grain for Life, an October title from Avery Publishing. Author Helga Hughes, a health and food writer, explains why this flavorful, little-known grain fell out of favor during the Industrial Revolution and offers 175 recipes to promote its acceptance as a foodstuff full of nutrition and nut-like taste. ($14.95 paper, 198p ISBN 0-89529-696-9) Linda West Eckhardt and Diana Collingwood Butts, the authors of Bread in Half the Time, strike again with new ways to achieve time-honored ends. In Rustic European Breads from Your Bread Machine, coming from Doubleday in September, they teach how to make 100 or so hearty kinds of bread using a bread machine's dough cycle, shaping by hand and baking in a home oven. Dark breads, wheat breads, flatbreads, bagels, baguettes and more. Mail order sources are included. ($25 336p ISBN 0-385-47777-5)

    A wonderful, life changing book!!

    If you appreciate REAL bread (for example if you grew up in europe) and you have a busy life, then here's my advice: Invest in a bread machine and this book!! With a little bit of planning you can eat chewy, fibrous, organic, NON-SWEET bread every day of the week without too much effort. All you have to learn is how to time the risings to your lifestyle. If it is out of print (it seems to be) - PLEASE BRING IT BACK!!

    Wow! Finally a bread machine cookbook that won't let a bread enthusiast down!

    This cookbook is great! No more bland bread worse than you get at the supermarket. This has a nice combination of super-simple 'cook in the machine' breads and more involved 'dough cycle only' recipes. The first recipe I tried turned out a wonderful, chewy, flavorful loaf. BUY THIS if you want to simplify your life a bit with the convenience of a bread machine, but can't stand the thought of another boring loaf.
