Recipes from My Bread

My Bread Cookbook

This cookbook shows how to make a bread at home without relying on a fancy bread machine or complicated kneading techniques. It also shows step-by-step instructions followed by step-by-step pictures, the amount of labor you put in amounts to 5 minutes: mix water, flour, yeast, and salt, and then let time work its magic―no kneading necessary. The process couldn’t be more simple, or the results more inspiring.
