Beard on Bread

Beard on Bread
by James Beard [641.8516 Bea]

If you ever wanted to make homemade bread, this would be the book to start with. It begins by giving a very through method, complete with illustrations, of bread making from scratch - no machine required. Once you have tried the basic loaf, there are numerous other recipes to try. It even comes with a guide on which breads are best for breakfast, sandwiches, afternoon coffee and so on. Some of the recipes included are the usual sourdough, French, and potato, but also monkey bread, English muffins, cheese bread, and pizza. I would suggest it to anyone interested in adding to their kitchen skills or anyone who loves the smell of fresh bread. [For more do it yourself cooking, try this: Jamie's Food Revolution : Rediscover How to Cook Simple, Delicious, Affordable Meals - By: Jamie Oliver - 641.55 Oli.] -- recommended by Kristen A. - Gere Branch Library

[Available in both the original 1973 edition, and a 1998 "25th Anniversary" edition..]
