I was happy to receive my next book to review from Blogging for Books!
So this book has so much information in it I don't even know what to do
with myself. There are recipes for making bread from scratch from grain to loaf, down to the detail level of how to
cultivate and manipulate ingredients. It's simply amazing...sort of. For example, I can tell Peter Reinheart has devoted a serious portion of his life to playing with bread and baking.
As a extreme
novice in the realm of cooking it was honestly just mostly overwhelming. I would
only recommend this book to people who are looking to be master
bread makers, or homesteaders. It's a bit much for me.
There are just so many recipes I don't know where to start! There are 6 gluten free ones that look really really yummy.
There is every type of bread imaginable in this book with precise, detailed instructions on how to make each loaf into bread perfection, in full colored full page pictures.
I'm not a connoisseur of bread, this book was a way to in depth and
over my head for easy use. It's probably something I might pull out in
my late 30s, when I need another hobby, but it isn't something I see
myself using regularly or even at all. I don't make things from scratch,
and honestly the thought of making bread and it taking 8 hours sounds a bit much to me.
That does not mean this book isn't amazing, because it is. Just know there is a high learning curve.
Not my favorite book I've received for review so far, but that is certainly okay.
