Free or discounted Kindle bread ebooks, #2.

Starting a 2nd thread to keep scrolling manageable. Previous post is at: http://www.thefreshloaf.com/node/61480/free-or-discounted-kindle-bread-books

I intend this post and comments to give Fresh Loafers a heads-up when bread-baking or pizza Kindle ebooks go on sale at Amazon for either heavily discounted prices, up to usually $4.99, or free.

I'll start off with five books that are always (at least have been for a while) free. Three are public domain.

 As new books go on sale  I will (or you can) add them to the comments.  I mostly get these notifications from a service at bookbub.com.  The sales usually last from 1 day to a week, so act quickly.  Most often the sales run Monday through Sunday. The "tag" with "frog" in it, is so the webmaster can make a few pennies in commission, like his sidebar links.

All the major bread authors have sales, Robertson, Reinhart, Forkish, etc. 

For a longer list of what I've already picked up, and how much I paid, and a very very short review, see my post at: http://www.thefreshloaf.com/node/61370/my-breadpizza-library-kindle-and-hard-copy

https://www.amazon.com/New-Dr-Price-Cookbook-ebook/dp/B00849LL7A

Public domain. The bread and rolls in this book are all leavened with baking powder. No yeast, no sourdough. Dated. Almost all volumetric measurements. Inexact oven temps, such as "medium oven" or "hot oven."

Free: How to Bake: The Art and Science of Baking, Kindle Edition, by Dennis Weaver.

https://www.amazon.com/How-Bake-Art-Science-Baking-ebook/dp/B0086W53ZQ

Modern. A very comprehensive baking book with yeasted dough and baking powder. A little bit on sourdough.  Explains the uses of oil, egg, milk in baking.  He kind of uses it as an advertisement for his company, but still informative.  Great for beginners.

Free: "Grandma's Best Quick Breads" by Marg Ruttan. https://www.amazon.com/Grandmas-Best-Quick-Breads-Recipes-ebook/dp/B00Q23M2BE

Only 47 pages. It has been a while since I downloaded it, so I forget my opinion of it. But I did not file it in the "junk" collection. Therefore, I thought it was at least worth the time to download it.

$2.99 for the Kindle ebook edition of "American Sfoglino: A Master Class in Handmade Pasta", by Evan Funke, and Katie Parla.

US: https://www.amazon.com/American-Sfoglino-Master-Class-Handmade-ebook/dp/B07SHHZ9TT?tag=froglallabout-20

Canada: https://www.amazon.ca/American-Sfoglino-Master-Class-Handmade-ebook/dp/B07SHHZ9TT?tag=froglallabout-20

It's more about how to make pasta than how to cook pasta, but has both.

Highly rated. 83% 5-star. 8% 4-star.

A bit controversial. Read the reviews first.  

When they say "hand made," they really mean it -- not a hand-cranked pasta-rolling machine -- but using a specially made very long rolling pin, more like a long pole.

274 print pages.

I have not read it.

https://www.amazon.com/Crust-Crumb-Master-Formulas-Serious-ebook/dp/B004IK8Q9A?tag=froglallabout-20

This is one of Reinhart's earlier masterpieces, a James Beard award winner. 

Originally published in 1998. Mostly uses commercial yeast, and commercially yeasted preferments,  but does have a sourdough section.

If you are a fan of Reinhart, this book belongs in your library.

At only $1.99, get this ebook! Even if just as a back-up for your print copy.

Kindle ebook edition of  Poilâne: The Secrets of the World-Famous Bread Bakery.

https://www.amazon.com/Poil%C3%A2ne-Secrets-World-Famous-Bread-Bakery-ebook/dp/B07LCBQ7KY?tag=froglallabout-20

Canada: https://www.amazon.ca/Poil%C3%A2ne-Secrets-World-Famous-Bread-Bakery-ebook/dp/B07LCBQ7KY?tag=froglallabout-20

I have this ebook.  The story is moving.  The photography is gorgeous and highly professional.

The ratings are: 4.5 out of 5.  

77% 5-star, and 10% 4-star.

The book's formula for the famous Poilane miche is based on a poolish/starter made with yoghurt, and then commercial yeast is used in the final mix.   Some reviewers felt cheated, but others felt it was a legitimate approximation for those who don't want to create and maintain a true sourdough starter.

There are also formulas for rye and barley breads, other baked goods, and non-oven dishes. There is a lot more than just bread.

Personally, I would not pay full list price for the hardcover. But for $4, this is a super deal to have a piece of the Poilâne story, the photos, and recipes for French cuisine.

I will likely get a hardcover edition when the used prices come down.

Kindle ebook edition of  Dutch Oven Breads, by Mark Hansen. 

US: https://www.amazon.com/Dutch-Oven-Breads-Mark-Hansen-ebook/dp/B00F8XLA1W?tag=froglallabout-20

Canada: https://www.amazon.ca/Dutch-Oven-Breads-Mark-Hansen-ebook/dp/B00F8XLA1W?tag=froglallabout-20

Jump on it quickly, as the deal/discount won't last.

These are for campfire cooking with wood coals or charcoal, not a home oven. Includes no-knead, and sourdough.

I have downloaded it. It's formatted correctly and has decent spelling/grammar. The author writes like a native English-speaker.

If you want to bake bread, pizza, or rolls on a campfire, this is a worthwhile download. It does assume some familiarity with camp-style dutch ovens, and campfire cooking.

I'm not sure how much I'd pay for it, when It's not free. But for free, it's worthwhile to get.

Josey Baker Bread, by Josey Baker, Kindle ebook edition, is on sale for 2•99.

I purchased it.  Of particular inferest to me:  It has 4 whole wheat formulas, 1 whole Kamut formula, 1 whole spelt formula, and 1 whole rye formula.

It has a really good looking gluten-free seeds and rolled oats loaf. 

I like the pizza method: start in a cast iron pan on the stove top and finish under the oven's broiler element.

Blurb says it's for beginners.

Kindle ebook edition of  In Search of the Perfect Loaf: A Home Baker's Odyssey, by Samuel Fromartz.

https://www.amazon.com/Search-Perfect-Loaf-Bakers-Odyssey-ebook/dp/B00INIXPGW?tag=froglallabout-20

Highly rated. 4.5/5, with 110 ratings. See the Amazon page for professional reviews, and the introduction. The American author goes to work in a Parisian bakery.

My review: Has 9 formulas. The formulas do not have instructional or in-process photos. So, this is not a great book for beginning bread bakers.

Photos are all black-and-white.

The book _is_ educational / informative with a lot of tech explanations on the intricacies of flour and wheat.  So, I'd say it's for someone who already has the basics of sourdough bread baking. 

I do recommend the book, at the sale price, but not for your first or only book on bread.

Really good info and stories about baguettes. TFL's baguette brigade should get this next time the price drops to $1.99.

US $3.99 is a great price for an ebook of this quality.

Robertson's method takes a bit more study than, say, Peter Reinhart's teaching methods, but the effort is worth it.

I realize cookbooks in ebook format are not as handy as a physical book, for all the flipping back and forth you need to do when cooking. But if you're not yet sold on buying a hard-copy of this book, this is an inexpensive way to see if you want to add the physical book to your library.

Blurb: "I have always wanted to build a wood fired oven to make bread and pizza, empanadas and dishes with that woodfired taste. In this book I show you how I built my backyard pizza oven from brick and cob, finished it with a layer of insulation and lime plaster and try it out with our first pizza party. I will take you step by step from the base, the concrete platform, fire brick cooking surface, brick and cob dome, smoke flue and doorway arch construction. If you have ever thought about making a wood fired oven of your own, take a look at how I built mine. Get some ideas and build a pizza oven in your own backyard. Get started today. Read my book and start to plan your own build. With a pizza oven in your backyard you will be able to come up with your own custom pizza, or loaves of bread."

4•99 for the Kindle ebook edition of "Bread Revolution" by Peter Reinhart.

https://www.amazon.com/Bread-Revolution-World-Class-Sprouted-Techniques-ebook/dp/B00JYWW486/

Also discounted in UK and EU(.de), but not Canada.

It's mostly about using sprouted flour. Sprouted flour is flour made from sprouted grain.

I bought this because it has "whole grains" and "heirloom flours" in the subtitle, but it's almost all sprouted flour, which is dang expensive. So get this if you're into flour made from sprouted grain. If all you want is whole-grain, his "Whole Grain Breads" is better.
