Have You Heard About... Flour Water Salt Yeast

… the amazing bread you can make with simple ingredients? For the person who has a passion for baking bread, enjoys hands-on methods, and loves eating crusty and chewy artisan bread, this book is for you. In Flour Water Salt Yeast: The Fundamentals of Artisan Bread and Pizza, Ken Forkish, a well-known baker from New York, takes us through the step-by-step process of creating breads that are worthy of the best bakeries, using only your hands, a bowl, some bread forms, and a Dutch oven. His directions are clear and the ingredients simple (as stated in the title). His recipes also include focaccia and pizza.

This book is not for the beginning bread baker, although I believe by following his instructions a serious baker will succeed. Give it try! Your taste buds will be happy.
