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.

Flour-Water-Salt-YeastThis 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.
