Solid, approachable book for newbie bread bakers?
I'd like to put together a gift basket for folks interested in baking bread -- those who haven't yet baked or have done very little of it. Along with some equipment, I thought a book would be appropriate. The trouble is, I can't figure out what book would be best!
It would be wonderful if the book wasn't intimidating, but also had enough depth that they could grow with it for quite some time.
Initially, I thought of Hamelman's Bread, but have heard it's a little deep for rote beginners. The next thought was Emmanuel Hadjiandreau's How to Bake Bread. And of course there are dozens more... (Wish Floyd's handbook was in hard copy.)
Any suggestions? Thank you SO much!
