BREAD: RIVER COTTAGE HANDBOOK Daniel Stevens
Daniel Stevens delves, with floury hands, into the ins and outs of baking real bread, and inspires us to abandon ready-sliced loaves for a world of delicious breads baked at home. With immense passion, Daniel examines the key ingredients in baking, explains the seemingly alchemic processes, and advises on the right kit to get started. He then demonstrates how to make yeast and non-yeast breads, as well as enriched doughs and home-started sourdough, and includes sixty recipes, covering everything from the simple white loaf and familiar classics such as ciabatta, naan and pizza bread, to fresh new challenges like potato bread, rye, tortilla, croissants, doughnuts and bagels. The handbook is completed by full-colour photographs throughout, including step-by-step photos, instructions for building your own bread oven, and a directory of equipment and useful addresses.
