The Bread Bible by Rose Levy Beranbaum

For a baker like me, this book is heavenly, just as the title befanbaum. Good luck and give it more time. Dec 1 – 6: I’ve made about 15 or so bread recipes from this book, and nearly all of them turned out better than I could have hoped. For instance, the bagel recipe goes on for 8 pages.

Don’t fall for the hype. Detailed, thorough, with the whys explained as well as the hows. I learned the now-unforgettable lesson when developing the recipe for the baguette. Aspiring cooks can’t actually see and feel texture and notice those little indescribables that are so important in creating something completely new to them. As flour ages, it loses its strength. Now that I have tried a wide representative sample of the recipes in this book, if any of them are hard it is the 1 variety, as opposed to the 2 kind which is more common with candy or desserts involving eggs omg don’t even get me started.

As in her seminal The Cake Biblewhich won an IACP prize, Beranbaum doesn’t just offer recipes here; she dissects them, explains how they work, then puts them back together again with a number of variations.


This is not to say I didn’t learn anything from reading the book. Want to Read saving…. Except I’m annoyed at the library patrons who borrowed this book before me and cut out some of the recipes.

Don’t let this deter you – if you want great bread, this book will get you there.

Published October 17th by W. Love the fact these recipes are for one loaf at a time. I also enjoy the pugliese. Yeast, as a living being, knows when you don’t know what you’re doing and it will contrarily refuse to cooperate if you lack confidence.

Let’s just admit that writing a cookbook is darn hard work and beranbaaum impossible. Cooking with Economy and Grace.


Given there are plenty of links within recipes that lead back to illustrations or sub-recipes, not including a beranbajm navigable recipe index is just plain unforgivable. No ifs, ands, or buts.

The Bread Bible

This book covers all types of bread and goes into detail about what makes each one unique, mainly without proposing the use of expensive or unprocurable ingredients. There are some lovely sounding recipes in the book, the names of which I can’t remember right now and am unwilling to tap bibel hundreds of pages to find.

Other baking continues to interest me: Doing all this just to make soft American white sammich bread makes as much sense to me as home-manufacturing your own Velveeta or Cheez Whiz but to each her own and hey, it’s just more proof that this book is serious. That said, my next book buy rse probably be Apprentice as I am ready for a different approach. I for one like Roses writing style.

Not that Beranbaum talks down or leaves out an essentials. We can always count on bibel to create recipes that not only work flawlessly, but taste out of this world. She admits to being a bread novice when she started writing this book, which has the benefit of allowing her to walk you through branbaum that someone with more experience may take for gr Unlike Rose Beranbaum’s other books, some of these recipes have failed me.

Thanks for telling us about the problem.
