Read full description of the books:
This is my new favorite bread baking book. It promises professional results for the home baker, and I must say, I am impressed.
The background and basic instructions in the beginning are essential reading. Each bread has separate recipes for for kneading by hand, by food processor, and using a stand mixer, and the actual proportions vary by method. The recipes are very clear regarding what type of flour to use - all purpose, white bread flour, whole wheat bread flour. The recipes are generally very precise, which I appreciate.
The whole wheat bread recipes in this book are astounding. This book contains a 100% whole wheat bread recipe that seriously, beats every other pure whole wheat recipe I have tried. The partial whole wheat challah is one of my favorite breads ever. Absolutely scrumptious. (The white bread recipes are great too, but interestingly, do not hold up as well in comparison to other books. This book is a must-have for whole grain bakers.)
In the back is a section called "Twelve Menus: A Morning of Baking," where the steps for baking six or seven loaves of bread, plus muffins or quick bread, are laid out. I doubt I will ever try to bake that much bread in one morning, but this section strongly appeals to my inner wanna-be-pioneer-woman.
Which is to say, in addition to being a good compilation of bread recipes, this book is really fun to read. Highly recommended.
