The Village Baker - Joe Ortiz Exchange library

Some time ago, a generous FL sent me The Village Baker by Joe Ortiz for the price of shipping.  I have finished reading it and am offering the same deal -  first one to send me a pm with an address and I will send the book,  with the request that after you finish the book you offer it for someone else.

I have received a pm,  and once I get the address, I will send it.  Hopefully, it will be back on the circuit shortly.

I have a copy of this, found it at Half Price Books on the  Clearance shelves, before I knew it was a classic.  The pictures alone sold me. 

I recommend!  Ortiz was a pioneer of the artisan bread renaissance in the US.

Available used on Amazon for about $6 incl shipping.

I would say it's a must-have if you're a bread cookbook collector.  Good on the coffee-table to impress friends, as a wish-book to aspire to, as well as in the kitchen.
