Two books to order

August 27, 2009 - 7:12am -- Salome

I decided to order two english bread books to my uncle's home, who will come and visit us in a couple weeks. Books are probably everywhere cheaper than in Switzerland, this way I will be able to save around 30 Dollars, which is a lot for a student like me.

Now, question: which books? I decided to order for at least 25 $, because otherwise I'd have to pay for the shipping anyway. I rather spend my money for books only. ;)

I've already got Reinhart's BBA and Hamelman's Bread.

New no-knead book -- anyone read it?

December 7, 2007 - 11:14am -- JMonkey

I stumbled upon the following article in the NY Times on a new book called, Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day.

From the looks of it, it seems that the author takes a master recipe in which a wet dough is mixed, but not kneaded, and then popped in the fridge overnight, and then adds a lot of variations to create different breads.

Good Stories - non baking books

Here are a few books I'd like to recommend.  I'd love to see some of your favorites - or just anything that's a good read.  Browndog and weavershouse, you started this idea, but I hope others can name a few also.

any of Anne McCaffrey's books

The Man Who Used the Universe
  by Alan Dean Foster

The Furies of Calderon (beginning of a series)
  by Jim Butcher

One For the Money (beginning of a series)

Hi everyone,

I have been reading alot on sourdoughs and how to make startes lately.


I really really want to get it happening, but I just cant seem to get all this percentage stuff sorted in my head.

I have found (at least with baking bread) I am a kinetic learner-but I know I need to get a firm grasp of what I need to do before I start.
