Pre-screening and Analyzing Recipes for Baked Goods

November 17, 2010 - 6:54pm -- MIchael_O

Hello bakers,

     For some while it has been a quest to decipher baking recipes (e.g. Michael Ruhlman "Ratio: The Simple Codes Behind the Craft of Everyday Cooking", Shirley Corriher, etc.).  But noone has attempted to prove their method is correct for all recipes or that their method defines what and what doesn't make a baked good.

Bread Science

September 22, 2007 - 5:43pm -- browndog

Having just finished this readable little volume I wanted to call attention to Emily Beuhler's Bread Science, reviewed earlier by Floyd. It really is a little gem, and some of the less scientifically-inclined among us might find it has a lot to offer. Emily takes the novice by the hand and speaks to them kindly and clearly, even playfully, while thoroughly deconstructing the process of making bread. She targets the home and hand baker particularly if not exclusively.
