Summary
  • The new baking masterwork from the author of The Cake Bible and The Pie and Pastry Bible.
  • "Rose will not only walk you through a recipe, she will hold your hand all the way. She is the ultimate perfectionist and we readers are the beneficiaries. We can always count on her to create recipes that not only work flawlessly, but taste out of this world." -- Maggie Glezer, author of Artisan Baking Across America "Every book by Rose Levy Beranbaum is a highly anticipated event, but this one is particularly close to my heart. The Bread Bible brings together an amazing amount of useful information with many many great and trustworthy recipes-you can always count on a recipe by Rose, and her attention to every detail. For a baker like me, this book is heavenly, just as the title promises." -- Peter Reinhart, author of The Bread Baker's Apprentice "The world of bread baking has been a secret society for 5000 years. Not any more. This book explains bread in all its historical, gastronomic, chewy, crusty, glorious detail. Of course, it took Rose to do it. This is the bread book." -- Bill Yosses, author of The Perfect Finish: Perfect Desserts for Every Occasion
