The Bread Bible

Rose Levy Beranbaum has done it again. I got The Cake Bible as a gift from the Mr's aunt who I believe knows her, and I ADORE it. I found out that she wrote The Bread Bible and have been hinting strongly that I'd like to get it for Christmas, and that worked out.

I've been going through and making different breads of hers and they're all amazing. She gives you a lot of information and insight regarding what went into developing the recipes which I find very useful and there are some beautiful photos of the breads. The Cake Bible is composed similarly and for someone who hasn't been baking for 40 years (I'm only 23!), and without any history of breadmaking growing up, I find the insight to be paramount!

When I got my bread machine, my husband bought me that book along with it. It is probably the best and most comprehensive book on bread making I've ever seen. Great stuff. Have fun with it.

I love Rose, too. If you go to her website, you can get her newsletter each month. She will correct any errors in the book, too.
