UPDATE: The winner is Kelsie [email protected] Congratulations!
Where was the book How to Be a Breadhead: A Beginner’s Guide to Baking by Fr. Dominic Garramone, OSB, when I was just learning to make my own bread from scratch?
Remember my pathetic attempt at bread making, and my desperate plea to all of you to help tell me what I was doing wrong?
This book so would have helped me!
We have a standard whole wheat bread recipe that we use, but I decided to experiment and try both the white bread recipe and the whole wheat recipe in this book. The whole wheat recipe in this book is cheaper than the one I make because it doesn’t require vital gluten, honey, or eggs. In fact, if you don’t have a gluten or wheat intolerance, this book is great for those with allergies because many recipes do not call for dairy or eggs.
My family hands down preferred the whole wheat bread from this book, so now this will be the type of bread that I make.
How to Be a Breadhead also demonstrates how to make more decorative breads such as Braided Bread which I served the family last night for dinner. Boy, were they impressed. That bread is pretty enough to be served on the Thanksgiving table.
How to Be a Breadhead contains some excellent recipes and also includes several chapters explaining the history of bread making and what tools you need to make your bread.
If you haven’t yet tried to make your own bread, or even if you have but want some new recipes and techniques, this book is for you.
