From the Publisher
A "New York Times "Top 10 Cookbooks of the Year 2011

This book is a treasure for all of us who love good bread. Whether you're a serious bread baker or someone who's always wanted to make bread at home but might have been too timid, you'll find recipes to teach and inspire, to make often, and to share with family and friends. —Dorie Greenspan, author, "Around My French Table"

Dan Leader has pulled off the nearly impossible trick of creating uncompromising but easy-to-prepare artisan breads. His common-sense approach to these uncommonly good treats will have even the most jaded baker sprinting back to the kitchen with renewed enthusiasm and inspiration. —William Alexander, author, "52 Loaves"

When did bread become so complicated? Too many new bread books are thick with words, expounding on dry topics like the differences between a levain and a poolish. This slim volume, perfect for novices, contains just 28 recipes that manage to cover a lot of ground, from English muffins to ciabatta to chocolate babka. —"The Modesto Bee (CA)"
