...allowed me to raise the level of my bread making. I have been making my own breads in various ways over the years and during the pandemic I have developed a keen interest in sourdough (as many others have)

Inside are recipes and personal testimonials of bakers, millers, professional artisans, who have rescued bread from the squishy boring white bread of industrialization to the ancient and vital craft that formed civilization.

The forgotten methods of bread making that have emerged in recent years has revolutionized bread in North America...this book is the latest in a series of books (Tartine, Flour Salt Yeast..) has taken the mystery out of bread making....and opens a door for personal creativity. This method brings an understanding of HOW and WHY bread does what it does and empowers the home baker to think about what they are doing and to revel in creativity and patience. I am actually excited about baking my weekly loaf and want to experiment with the myriad of fresh milled flour becoming available across the country.

The book is beautiful and full of valuable tips and recipes for the kinds of bread you would only see in a handful of true artisan bakeries. The secrets are revealed and passed onto us all in a giving manner that lets us remember that bread making is not a mysterious tool used by industry for profit...it is what makes us civilized, compassionate humans.
