Bread really is a universal food. This "photographic gallery" reveals the variety of breads. There are as seemingly large as life pictures of the breads. Everything from the continental classics such as Tuscan Focaccia scented with rosemary to sweet enriched reads studded with spices and fruit. You will also find flat breads from the Middle East and rustic country loaves from France. Sigh
This is an exciting resource written by authors who are experts in bread baking. Eric Treuill was born in Cahors in southwest France and first became interested in breadmaking when he worked as a mitron in his uncle's boulangerie. Ursula Ferrigno grew up on her father's vegetable and olive-producing farm in southern Italy.
"Ursula remembers the hot summer evenings when her grandmother would light the wood-fired oven on the terrace of their family home in Campania. She recalls the sweet, yeasty fragrance of the seemingly magically growing dough and its soft, springy texture as she formed it into a round, for it was a family tradition that each person shape and top his or her own pizza."
After a brief introduction to the Fundamentals of Breadmaking a world of possibilities is revealed in the next few chapters.Read more ›
Filled with beautiful photos of each bread, the instructions are the clearest, easiest I've ever encountered in a cookbook. My copy is worn and stained and holds a place of prominence in my kitchen bookshelf, just thinking about it writing this, I'm just gonna have to go make a filled focaccia today! A two crusted pizza type of bread, it is so easy to make and you'll get rave reviews from all who get to share it.
The other thing I like about this book is their selection of hearty peasant type of farm breads. No haute cuisine here, just great good bread, buy it with the confidence you'll produce things that look just like the luscious photos!
While bread making is simple and rewarding, it takes a lot of time. However, with this book, you'll be feeling like a professional bread baker in no time. Must-try recipes include brioche, challah, the bread and butter pudding (made from bread you made yourself!), and the Hungarian potato bread.
