Overview

Josey Baker Bread: Get Baking - Make Awesome Bread - Share the Loaves by Josey Baker

This is the first true entry-level bread-baking cookbook, from Josey Baker (that's his real name!), a former science teacher turned San Francisco baking sensation. Josey Baker Bread combines step-by-step lessons with more than 100 photographs, offering easy-to-follow guidance for aspiring bakers. Recipes start with the basic formula for making bread— requiring little more than flour, water, time, and a pan—and build in depth and detail as the user progresses to more complex loaves, including Josey's cult favorite Dark Mountain Rye. With chapters dedicated to pizza, pocketbreads, and treats, Josey's playful, encouraging tone makes for a fun read full of great advice for bakers of all levels.

The Glory of Bread He's a super happy guy for discovering his gift of breadmaking and simply wanted to write a book that he wish he had when he started... that makes this a really accessible beginner book that gets you excited to make bread! I have a girlfriend who was obsessed over her sourdough and I thought it was just her, but now I see, that passion is a wonderful force that changes how people view food, one of the most important things in life. And by re-valueing something as basic as bread, one's entire perspective on life can change. So, if you want to change the world, the first step is making your own bread with this book as your guide. It's beautifully crafted, with an adorable bookmark, great photos, and well-written instructions.
