A Passion for Bread: Lessons from a Master Baker by Lionel Vatinet

In this charming and practical cookbook, Master Baker Lionel Vatinet shares his knowledge and passion for baking irresistible bread.

A PASSION FOR BREAD brings a Master Baker's encyclopedic knowledge of bread, passed on from a long line of French artisan bakers, to the American home, with detailed instructions and dozens of step-by-step photographs. It will cover everyday loaves like baguettes, ciabatta, and whole grain breads, as well as loaves for special occasions, including Beaujolais Bread, Jalapeño Cheddar Bread, and Lionel Vatinet's celebrated sourdough boule. A chapter of delectable soup and sandwich recipes will inspire you to create the perfect accompaniments. The book offers a detailed introduction to bread baking, 65 recipes, and 350 full-color photographs.
