Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is the first true entry-level bread-baking cookbook, from Josey Baker (that's his real name!), a former science teacher turned San Francisco baking sensation. Josey Baker Bread combines step-by-step lessons with more than 100 photographs, offering easy-to-follow guidance for aspiring bakers. Recipes start with the basic formula for making bread — requiring little more than flour, water, time, and a pan — and build in depth and detail as the user progresses to more complex loaves, including Josey's cult favorite Dark Mountain Rye. With chapters dedicated to pizza, pocketbreads, and treats, Josey's playful, encouraging tone makes for a fun read full of great advice for bakers of all levels.

Recipes include:
Your First Loaf of Bread
Your First Sourdough Loaf
Seed Feast
Dark Mountain Rye
Plus pizzas, pocketbreads, cookies, and more!

Review:

"On weekend mornings, a crowd forms in front of The Mill, a cafe on the up-coming stretch of Divisadero Street in San Francisco. While mentions of the cafe's $4 toast made the rounds on blogs and news sites, stirring up debate about the cost of living in the Bay Area, the line hasn't shortened for the fresh-out-of-the-oven slices. Josey Baker — yes, that's his last name — leads the Mill team in all things bread and shares step-by-step lessons in creating an array of loaves and other baked goods. A playful tone and style (the author begins the book with q&a with himself), and well-shot, full-color recipe photos make this an enjoyable read while educating home bakers on loaves from whole wheat to sourdough to cornbread. Additional recipes such as the B(L)T pocketbread, the Raddest Homemade Pizza the World Has Ever Known, and Seasonal Fruit Crumble make this a book you'll want to pull from the shelf well after your morning toast."

Review:

"...(a) well-illustrated, step-by-step book. It's designed for a beginning baker but more-experienced hands can also profit from his approach, which produces more deeply flavored loaves." Florence Fabricant, The New York Times

Review:

"It's no surprise that Josey Baker's new book is as joyous and inspired as his San Francisco bakery, The Mill, where Josey is using sustainably grown, organic ingredients to bake wholesome and utterly delicious bread. These recipes are vital for any aspiring baker!" Alice Waters
