The Bread Bible

The Bread Bible is the one book on the subject no kitchen should be without -- and now it's available in paperback. A trusted authority on baking, Beth Hensperger has brought together hundreds of time-tested recipes, both classic and intriguingly original, from Gruyere Pullman Loaf and Farm-Style White Bread with Cardamom to fragrant Tuscan Peasant Bread and Classic Buttermilk Biscuits. And don't just think loaves. Steamed Pecan Corn Bread, pancakes, golden brioches, flatbreads, focaccia, pizza dough, dinner rolls, dessert breads, strudels, breakfast buns -- the choices are endless. The recipes are foolproof, step-by-step, and easy-to-follow. Busy bakers will also appreciate the excellent selection of recipes for bread machines and food processors. With a glossary and easy-to follow tips such as how to store and reheat bread, The Bread Bible is "a keeper for anyone who likes to bake or plans to get started." -Chicago Tribune

a true bread (and baking!) bible

a true bread (and baking!) bible

I have a bit of a, um, baking problem. At my most obsessive, I bake three or four times a week so I was delighted when the Bread Bible came out in paperback. I already own many baking-specific cookbooks so it takes a certain amount of pizzazz to amaze me. Well, Hensperger’s collection is wonderful with classic recipes as well as exotic variations (that are tasty without being pretentious) and great chapters on quick breads or desserts. Try the Eastern European plum cake (a hit every time I bring it to a party) or the absolutely awesome cinnamon rolls made with potato dough. I mean, my God. Those cinnamon rolls are so good they’re practically “Unicorn-frolicking-in-a-fragrant-meadow” magical. Enough chattering – newbie and veteran bakers? Get this book now! You’ll regret nothing.
