Josey Baker Bread: Get Baking – Make Awesome Bread – Share the Loaves
This is the first true entry-level bread-baking cookbook, from Josey Baker (that’s his real name!), a former science teacher turned San Francisco baking sensation. Josey Baker Bread combines step-by-step lessons with more than 100 photographs, offering easy-to-follow guidance for aspiring bakers.
Recipes start with the basic formula for making bread requiring little more than flour, water, time, and a pan and build in depth and detail as the user progresses to more complex loaves, including Josey’s cult favorite Dark Mountain Rye.
With chapters dedicated to pizza, pocketbreads, and treats, Josey’s playful, encouraging tone makes for a fun read full of great advice for bakers of all levels.
