Beard on Bread


by James Beard


Alfred A. Knopf, 1974


Original dust jacket, great condition


Here is the acknowledged dean of American cookery on his favorite subject, bread, sharing his know how, his prejudices, his de-lights. Crusty on the subject of the ersatz products commercially sold as bread, rapturous as he describes a homemade loaf that has the right texture and a good "nose," relaxed and masterful about the various techniques of kneading, shaping, and baking, James Beard is so persuasive about the simple and joyous art of breadmaking that once you give yourself up to this book and plunge your hands in the dough, you will become a confirmed bread-maker for life.
