There is nothing better than the mouth watering flavor of freshly baked bread. As more and more people opt to make their own food, the art of bread making has become a renewed trend amongst connoisseurs and conscious consumers alike. With the abundance of ingredients available online and in most supermarkets, baking your own bread can be fun and delicious. It also helps you to reconnect with your food as you source ingredients.
In Bread Making: A Home Course, Lauren Chattman has created the ultimate guide for you to learn techniques for making a wide variety of breads such as simple breads, sourdough starters, straight doughs, yeasted pre-ferments, flatbreads, whole grain breads, and bread machine baking. It is a great book for foodies and also a fun way to teach kids about baking! Each chapter also includes a Q & A section that addresses questions and concerns encountered by beginning bakers.
Lauren Chattman is a cookbook author and former professional pastry chef who has written 10 books, including Bread Making and The Baking Answer Book. She has collaborated with former White House Pastry Chef Roland Mesnier on Dessert University and with Daniel Leader on Local Breads, which won an IACP award. She can be seen demonstrating baking techniques on www.howdini.com. She lives with her husband and two daughters in Sag Harbor, New York.
