Rise & Shine
It’s the true test of a baker—the perfect loaf of bread. Artisanal bread has seen a resurgence in popularity in the past few years, but perhaps more importantly, we have seen a true increase in respect for the master craftspeople who can form an ideal loaf. Now, you too may join their ranks. With his new book Artisan Breads Every Day from Ten Speed Press, Peter Reinhart imparts some secrets to get flawless bread in as little time as possible. A three-time James Beard Award winner, Reinhart intelligently divides each project into time-managing segments—things to do the day before, and things to do the day of baking. His expansive recipes include sandwich bread (including whole wheat) pizzas, sticky buns, and babka. Pick up this wonderful book for $30 wherever cookbooks are sold.
