Your one bread book for a desert island
...you know, assuming you had an oven and lots of ingredients on the island.
What would it be?
I own a grand total of one bread book, and it's a crappy one. Really, really crappy.
So many folks on this site have seemingly encyclopedic knowledge not only about bread, but about the books about bread.
I'm not interested in filling a shelf with books, and I don't want to spend my leisure time reading bread porn, but I sure am keen to get a bread bible in the house.
The king of thing that would go next to the Oxford Companion to Wine as *the* bread book in my kitchen.
Would love your recommendations.
Thanks, all, for any and alll advice.
