Bread Recipe

Whose bread recipes do you like working from the most?

There are several authors who many of us on this form continually refrence: Peter Reinhart, Jeffrey Hamelman, Chad Robertson, Eric Kayser, Pierre Nury, etc.

I am interested in hearing from my fellow bloggers which contributors to this forum produce consistently outstanding bread recipes.

Not to be conceited but, I do like my own recipe for white sandwich sourdough loaf bread.  It is good toasted, untoasted and, for sandwiches -- my opinion, and my wife's.

I'll bet there are a lot of bakers out there who like their own bread.  Otherwise, why would they be baking it?

Peter Reinhart, excellent teacher and great recipes (no errata!). Richard Ploner comes in second, with his wonderful Austrian/South Tyrolean recipes ("Brot aus Südtirol").

No list is complete without Daniel DeMuzzio and, because I had the honor of testing some of their recipes before their newest book was published, I can attest to the fact that Stan Ginsberg and Norm Berg deserve some consideration in this discussion.
