book of bread


one wonderful aspect of the winter here is that we have been inspired to make lots of bread. i found The Book of Bread (by Judith & Evan Jones) at the library back in January, and we've held onto it until today...i have to take it back, reluctantly. fortunately i can order my own copy. it's a wonderful bread book...first out in 1982, no photos but lots of line drawings (after all...it's bread, you can guess more or less what the result should look like!) very straight-forward, not obsessive, all the recipes but one have worked marvellously, including a recipe for English muffins where we had to use an empty water chestnut can as a mold.
