Turn Simple Ingredients into Fresh Bread
The act of baking bread has risen alongside civilization, spanning over 30,000 years. There are a lot of bread-baking books out there, but useful, rich knowledge of baking really only lies within the pages of a handful of cookbooks. Dick and James Strawbridge’s Made at Home: Breads is one of them. This basic guide moves systematically through Baking Basics, Flatbreads, Starters, Yeasts and Quick Breads. Learn the staples – garlic butter-lathered dough balls and focaccia – and add more intensive loaves to your repertoire – banana dumplings and apricot and rosemary brioche. Every recipe is coupled with step-by-step pictures that will lure you into your apron. Pick up a copy of Made at Home: Breads, turn on the oven and fill your home with the comforting aromas of fresh baked bread. Available for $20.
