Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
This is absolutely the best bread cookbook ever! This well-written book demystifies the bread-making process. Basic, fried, sourdough, enriched, fruit, and celebration are the various categories for the appealing breads that are included in this book. Most of the recipes are made with cool or lukewarm liquids, thereby ensuring that the yeast is not "killed." The slow fermentation of the dough produces a well-flavored and chewy loaf that as it matures assumes a rich and complex flavor that is slow to become stale. An extremely detailed and well-illustrated section shows each step in the bread-making process. Gorgeous color photographs accompany each clearly written recipe. All recipes have been recommended by either professional chefs or local bread enthusiasts from many different countries. The over 130 recipes include: Parathas, Bacon Loaf, Saffron Buns, Hot Cross Buns, Wheat Bread, Scandinavian Rye Bread and Rum Babas. A special section includes suppliers for both equipment and flours, thereby ensuring the best possible product. This great book will make all of us into successful bread bakers. KLIATT Codes: JSA*—Exceptional book, recommended for junior and senior high school students, advanced students, and adults. 2001, Globe Pequot, The Lyons Press, 192p. illus. index.,

    Awsome Book!!

    Just in reading the first few pages of this book I learned so much! I started making breads just over a year ago and am finally learning how to do it better, as well as what I've been doing wrong. This book is very well written and easy to understand. There are lots of photographs to help cut down on any confusion. I haven't ventured into some of the more adventurous recipes yet, but I'm looking forward to it. This is a great read for beginners as well as experienced bread makers!
