Brother Juniper’s Bread Book

by Peter Reinhart


Brother Juniper’s Bread Book advocates a slow-rise method to baking and life. Bread-making is given a religious fervor, and through that passion readers find a culinary paradise. But goat ricotta and chive bread, “the world’s greatest brownies”, and stromboli may be just a bit sinful.

from the publisher

Shows how to bake bread by the "slow rise" method, and includes recipes for over two dozen types of bread.

This is the book that started my enduring love affair with bread-making. Subtitled ‘The Slow Rise as Meaning and Metaphor’, it gives so much more than recipes.
