Summary

Summary

In this book, she applies her wealth of knowledge to demystifying what many feel is this most intimidating of kitchen crafts - baking the perfect loaf of bread. This is an easy-to-follow, step-by-step manual, which novices should find easy to go through the basics and quickly learn to bake eight different breads, including white, whole-wheat and flat bread.

Library Journal Review

Hensperger's (The Bread Bible) latest bread book is in essence a mini-bread baking course, starting with "Baking School," which covers the basics - ingredients and equipment, techniques, troubleshooting, and more - and moving on to her favorite time-tested recipes. These begin from the simplest, an easy batter bread, and progress to the more complex, a yeasted coffee cake; each section has a master recipe, followed by variations and spin-offs, and there are step-by-step photographs and technique shots throughout. A fine introduction for novice bakers, this is recommended for most collections. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
