Another great bread book that makes me want to bake more bread, eat more bread, and then fear the waistline effects. I never would have thought of a combination like Maple, Onion, and Bacon loaf...but now that they said something....and I definitely like the first recipe for Bacon, Tomatoe, and Cheddar loaf. Yum.
I made a cinnamon bread that I love, but this book puts in an optional option of putting some crumbled graham crackers in the filling for texture. That's something I'll have to add and try. (note to self: 2 crushed crackers)
They have monkey bread, which we all know from home-ec, but then a second: sweet potato monkey bread. Hm. The book offers non-traditional among the traditional. Strawberry rolls with walnut swirl? Why not?
Besides the staple loaves, rolls, and such, they have a wide variety of flat breads, which a lot of books lack, and they throw in pastries, turnovers, and bread recipes for leftover breads. Finally, yummy butters and spreads.
This is probably the best bread book I've read - there are beautiful full sized pictures, more recipes than you could try in a lifetime, unique breads that will have guests wondering what your secret is, and detailed instructions. Definitely a winner.
Received this from netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
