Product Description

Review

"'This book is irresistible! Warren Lee Cohen offers insights into the place the bread making can have in a child's life and encourages us to find meaning and care in our baking.' Jade Bashford, Soil Association"

From the Author

Welcome to 'Baking Bread with Children.' Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned hand, this book offers an abundance of information and inspiration to make baking a satisfying and rich experience. It's a book that you, and the children in your life, will want to share time and again.

Children (adults too!) are deeply impressed by the alchemy of how yeast turns flour, water and salt into bread. Creating something to eat from such basic ingredients is real life magic. It is an unforgettable experience to bake a beautiful loaf. It touches all our senses as well as feelings of accomplishment, wonder and joy. Baking bread is meaningful work that teaches a diverse set of skills and offers bountiful rewards.

But this is more than a recipe book. Baking bread without engaging the imagination is hard work. Add imagination and the activity becomes fun and deeply nourishing. I have collected a store of multicultural tales, songs and blessings to bring baking to life. This is so vital that I have sandwiched the recipes between them.

After sharing recipes and a lively bread culture of stories, songs and poems, I offer suggestions for bread-related projects and educational activities. This section will be of special interest to teachers, adventurous parents and home schoolers. I start with instructions on how to build an earthen bread oven.

In the chapter 'Enlivening the senses' I explore how our human senses develop and the role that bread-baking can play in supporting their healthy growth. The following chapter includes suggestions for incorporating bread-baking into the school curriculum. From mathematics to nutrition, creative writing to geography, baking bread can bring a vast array of subjects to life.

I then dedicate a chapter to the seven traditional grains that feed most of the world's people. Each grain has a unique story to tell, connected with its origin, mythology, nutritional profile and the people that rely upon it. Each one has helped shape specific cultures, diets, customs and rituals. The grains are central to understanding world civilisations. Included are menu suggestions for how to incorporate all of these grains into a healthy and varied diet.

Home-baked bread creates a healthy alternative to industrially produced sliced white bread. The chapter 'Factory-made bread - wheat sensitivities, allergies and coeliac disease' has suggestions for finding the diet that best suits you, including recommendations for using grains other than wheat. I also examine some of the health issues surrounding food today and share some nutritional insights.

Format: Paperback
I learned so much from this book! I used to be a regular home bread-baker in the '80s so I thought I was pretty clued-up - however this book opens new doors. It demystifies sourdough, shares inventive recipes, gives wheat-free alternatives and (if that is not enough!) explains the Steiner approach to education. The book weaves in inspirational messages about how children learn: through imitation and their imagination. Infused with stories, poems and beautifully illustrated, this book will be one the kids love too. The author's kind tone - like a warm and helpful parent - is present throughout. If you are are child-friendly, into healthy food, and (want to or) enjoy baking - this is a winner.

I have tried out a number of these recipes with my children, and it's a complete joy. My children love to cook with me, and making our own bread is such a great time to cook together. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to spend quality time with their children, make delicious and healthy bread and save a bit of cash!!!!

Baking Bread with Children (Crafts)

This is a MUST have book for any mother, aunt or grandmother who is seeking a tranquil , creative and joyous way to spend some precious quality time with their children .
The beautiful stories and illustrations, that accompany this very special recipe book, make it a delight to share with young and old alike.
As a grandmother now in my 60's, I still hold dear the memories I have of spending time with my mother and grandmother as they involved me in their work of baking for our family.
This book brings ,in a delightful manner ,a family tradition that sometimes gets overlooked in the hectic lifestyle so many of us experience these days. It is a GIFT indeed !
