Description
A “Breadhead” is a dedicated baker, someone who bakes often, who thinks and dreams about bread and is not afraid to experiment. In this beginner’s book you’ll learn more than just basic techniques—you’ll find out why yeast behaves the way it does, how to substitute different flours in a recipe, and how to shape a simple dough into something extraordinary for a special occasion. Starting with tools of the trade (you need less than you think), Father Dom takes you through the baby steps of baking all the way to beautiful loaves that will amaze and delight your family and friends. Special attention is paid to kneading—a stumbling block for many beginning bakers—and simple shaping techniques that can make your loaves look terrific. You’ll find braided loaves, flatbreads, pretzels and bagels, dinner rolls that look like roses, butterfly-shaped breakfast treats, and a muffin recipe that uses a secret ingredient: melted ice cream! And all in Fr. Dom’s funny and friendly style of instruction, with helpful photos. 87 pages, with photos , 6.5” x 9” Spiral Bound.
