'All You Knead is Bread,' photographed by Peter Cassidy, aims to inspire you to start baking by explaining the basic techniques, demystifying the process and showing you, with step-by-step photography, how simple it is to make a huge variety of breads. The recipes come from the four corners of the globe, but they all have one thing in common - they are easy to follow and the result is so much better for you than anything you can buy in shops. Choose from more than 50 recipes, such as pitta bread, soda bread, cinnamon buns, cheese rolls, rye bread and corn bread. Spanning wheat and the myriad other grains used from country to country, this book will teach how to make bread and understand its unique ability to bring people together to celebrate, share and enjoy it.
Jane Mason founded Virtuous Bread in 2010 to make it fun and easy for people all over the world to make and find and learn about bread and in so doing to forge the link between bread and virtue. Jane bakes, teaches baking, speaks about bread as a catalyst for social change and published her first book, All You Knead Is Bread in October 2012.
Completely self taught, Jane has had the fortune to bake with excellent bakers from South Africa to Sweden, and it is this knowledge of global bread and its role in the lives of billions of people all over the world that makes her special.
Her second book, The Book of Buns is finished and will be published in September 2013. You can preorder it on Amazon already! On her website www.virtuousbread.com there are videos about all aspects of the baking process from proofing yeast to shaping baguettes. They are a valuable addition to her books.
