I have been baking bread for most of my life. I have made flat breads, yeast breads, quick breads, sourdoughs etc, but I had never made a slow rise bread thill this year. I love (slow rise) bread, I sound like a famous TV celebrity there don’t I? What a difference in texture and taste. Chewy, firm texture with yeasty air bubbles, perfection.
This book has a wonderful collection of recipes, and hints to expand your level of bread making. There are many recipes that I have not seen before which is wonderful. There is even leftover bread recipes ! Creative, way beyond the french toast option I always go for. The sourdough recipes are all top of my list as are the croissants. I’ve only tried 4 recipes but plan on making almost all of them this fall /winter.
I think this book is fabulous, for beginners, and more advanced bakers. The instructions are clear and easy to follow. I plan on gifting this book to several people, and myself this holiday season. This book will sit on my favorite cookbooks shelf.
I will be posting pictures and notes as I go through the book- stay tuned
