Absolutely beautiful

Practical assistance for home bread bakers


This illustrated collection offers a range of recipes and practical help with all aspects of baking bread in the home kitchen. All the recipes use a liquid sourdough starter which Eric Kayser considers simple and easy to use but he does include details of several other fermentation methods if keeping and feeding the starter is not possible. As with all practical activities including cooking, expertise is gained through practise. A short "learning from mistakes" makes this point.

The Bread bible.


I love Bread and this book delivers. However, nearly every recipe requires at least basic bread making skills to get a decent result.If you are prepared to have some failures on your way to success this book will get you there.
