Williams-Sonoma Collection: Bread

Non-fiction by Beth Hensperger, Chuck Williams

< read all 2 reviews

Flour and Water and Yeast, oh HOLY this is good!

  • Jun 12, 2010
Williams-Sonoma's cookbooks are not for the faint of heart. It can take some serious thinking and plotting to do even one recipe.

But if you're an avid baker/cook, and you're not scared of yeast, then you may just love this book!

There are about 25-35 recipes. The categories are something like,

Basics (Whole Wheat, White, Dinner Rolls)
International (Pita, Challa, Baguette)
Breakfast (Muffins, Banana Bread)

And maybe a few more.

While the recipes are detailed and require planning ahead hours in advance, and can be very picky about the little details of bread-making, the results WILL NOT let you down if done correctly.

Every recipe includes a mouth-watering photograph of the result, and in the back are bread-making tips for the true gurus.

The content section is laid out beautifully with delicious photography, and is categorized in a way that is easy for dumb chefs like myself to understand!

Reality check? I just made some pitas today, and banana bread at some point this week.
It's a real book for real life.
And it tastes amazing.

Great cook book review! I love the Williams-Sonoma series. I recently received a Vegetarian one for a gift, but I haven't tried any recipes from it yet.

Ooh, great review, thanks! I make my own homemade bread (as a matter of fact I'm eating a fresh loaf right out of the oven this second). This would be a great book to have! I need some variety in the bread I make :) If you like this book you would probably love the Bakers and Pastry Lovers Community!

I love Jesus, salvation, my family, writing, and my photography and design.   In that order.   And I can't wait to tell you about my life.   Just ask me.
