Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Good bread needs more than just flower and water, milk, or eggs. It requires nurturing and care.

In this twenty-fifth anniversary edition of the international best-seller that started a generation of Americans baking, Ed Brown shows how to make – and enjoy – breads, pastries, muffins, and desserts for today's sophisticated palates. And in a new afterword, he reflects on the widespread influence of the book, and offers five new recipes.

Review:

"This was the first cookbook I ever bought for myself, back when it was first published. To this day, I consider The Tassajara Bread Book to have been a major influence not just on my cooking and baking, but on my attitude and philosophy about food in general. Thank you, Ed Brown, for this lasting gift." Mollie Katzen, author of The Moosewood Cookbook and The Enchanted Broccoli Forest

Review:

"How small and humble this book is to have made such a big difference....Many people consider it the bible of bread baking, one of the most influential cookbooks ever, an inspiration not only to bakers and chefs but also to an entire generation of food writers." New York Times

Synopsis:

A baking classic that tells how to make breads for today's sophisticated palates. 30 new recipes interspersed with beautiful line drawings and poetry.

Synopsis:

Gathers recipes for yeasted and unyeasted breads, pastries, sourdough breads, pancakes, scones, bagels, biscuits, muffins, flavored butters, cookies, cakes, and tarts.

I had forgotten what the cover of this book looks like! My copy is over 30 years old, the covers fell off many years ago and the pages are splotched with drips and spills. Not only has it provided me with many great recipes (I especially recommend the orange-whole wheat hotcakes), but has also helped define my philosophy of cooking, eating and serving others.
