Bread Book suggestions
I'm new to the whole dough (bread & pizza) thing and I've been reading alot of informaion on the web. There's so much info out there that I'm beginning to get confused with various ways to make a certain bread. Right now, I'm making ciabatta and have looked at different recipes and they all do things differently. From techniques to ingredients, every author seems to do it a little differently.
I'm looking for a bread book that would contain some recipes but more importantly detailed information on techniques, such as mixing, folding, stretching, etc that would help a newbie get started in the right direction.
For those who have a favorite book, I would appreciate if the members could recommend a book and provide a little info as to why they prefer that book over the next.
I do have Artisan Bread in Five, the Fresh Loaf pocket book and Peter Reinhart's American Pie. They are good books but I'm looking for something more detailed.
All responses are appreciated.
