"No need to knead"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Dan Lepard makes breadmaking enjoyable. Explains why there's no need to knead to exhaustion. A hobby you can eat. Like all hobbies it takes time and attention to detail. There's plenty of variety in the types of bread you can try – including 100% Rye Sourdough and Irish Soda Bread. There is also step by step instructions (with photos) for preparing your own sourdough starter. This book will take you from beginner to artisan and give you a glimpse of Europe at the same time.


The Handmade Loaf is a collection of recipes, personal stories and photographs that capture the breads and home bakers of Europe. Over 80 recipes, many of which are inspired by the bakers profiled, look afresh at traditional methods and ingredients. Their blend of history and innovation will appeal to the experienced baker, but also to a generation ready to discover the simple pleasure of baking their first crisp loaf at home. Shot in real time, with bakers caught on film as the dough is mixed and the bread taken freshly from the oven, the photographs place the reader right beside the baker, showing the detail to help us understand perfectly how breads are created.
