Laced throughout the book, Hamelman’s personal narrative offersa compelling portrait of a lifelong love affair with bread andvividly communicates the passion he shares with so many otherbakers.

Guess I need that book. Hamelmam, the beginning of the book covering ingredients, techniques, etc was much lighter on the science and in depth “why”s of baking than m This book is often referred to as the “bible” of bread-baking, and it is written by the head baker at King Arthur Flour, but I found it lacking in many ways.

Laced throughout the book, Hamelman’s personal narratives offer a compelling portrait of a lifelong love affair with bread and vividly communicate this passion.

Breaddespite its sweeping title, focuses mostly on recipes of European descent, with a Eurocentric bibliography to back it up. It struck me that while inclusion was once gesture enough, cultural representation today requires acknowledgment of authenticity and authorship. I looked at a bunch of bread books in the bookstore but none were as satisfying as Hamelman’s.

You’d be hard pressed to find something not covered in the book.

Highly hwmelman for the home cook wanting to experiment. Hamelman treats you seriously, assumes you have a brain and can work out that things can be varied. I didn’t hamelan read every word of this book, but I gleaned what I wanted to from it, which is to say that I read the first chapter in it’s entirety and read more than I ever want to know about The Bread Process, from Mixing through Baking.

Mr Hamelman provides encouragement, advice,interesting snippets of history and anecdotes, all mixed with a sprinkling of gentle humour and a passion for his craft.
