Great News!!! Doing the Rye Bread Book for WW Norton
To those who've been following and abetting my baking adventures lo, these many years (ITJB test bakers, supporters, boosters, et al.), thank you. The news now is that I've just gotten a contract from WW Norton (editor: Maria Guarnaschelli), to write the definitive rye bread book (title TBD). We're looking at about 350 pages, 80-100 recipes from all over Europe and North America for breads that, with a few exceptions, contain no less than 50% rye. I'll be publishing some of those recipes from time to time on my blog, NYBakers Bench. I'll keep everyone posted.
As the MS takes shape, I'll be needing test bakers and pre-publication yet again, so keep an eye out for that announcement as well. I'm privileged to be a member of this community.
