New Daniel Leader book
I was just given a copy of Daniel Leader's (and Lauren Chattman's) new book "Local Breads: Sourdough and Whole-Grain Recipes from Europe's Best Artisan Bakers ." (Not really all of Europe; mostly France, Italy and Germany. )
Only had time to skim so far, but it looks really useful. Enormous amounts of information and discussion on sourdough techniques. Also, each recipe is rendered in a grid with measurements by volume, U.S. weight, metric weight and baker's percentages.
The photos are *gorgeous,* although mostly of finished loaves. Some processes are illustrated with drawings.
All in all, it looks like a worthy follow to "Bread Alone ."
