Book Description

Dec 31 2001
Modern bread--the bland, packaged type from the supermarket--just doesn't measure up to the substantial, tasty, and healthy originals developed by generations of bakers everywhere. The owner of the famous Carved Angel restaurant serves up his firsthand knowledge of making the perfect loaf--and proves it's within anyone's grasp. Beginning with information on grains, leavening, mixing, kneading, shaping, and cooking, he then presents 50 easy-to-follow and utterly delicious recipes from around the world. From France, come crusty baguettes and a rustic pain polka, while Italy gives us cakey, tender ciabatta and focaccia. Scotland's specialty is a barley bancock, split into four. Take an unforgettable bite of Indian naan, Portuguese corn bread, Majorcan potato buns, German sourdough rye, sweet Austrian gugelhupf, San Francisco sourdough, New England buttermilk rolls, West Indian roti, and tortillas, bagels, pita, and challah. You'll never buy from a grocery store again!

2.0 out of 5 stars A basic book on bread making Feb. 13 2002
Format:Paperback
This is a very short and to the point book. It starts out with a brief history of bread making, and then moves on to different bread types from around the world.
I tend to dislike books like this. What I find lacking is information on what I can and can't do with a recipe, and what can make things go wrong.
Apart from that, the recipes are very nice.
