Product Description

Product Description

Bread has been part of our daily diet for centuries and it went from a simple, white bread to the variety we have today, from whole wheat to seed bread and even gluten-free or wheat-free bread. Even for our ancestors, bread was an important part of their diet and if we read the old books, we will find it mentioned there in a form or another.

Nowadays, bread baking has turned into both and industry and an art, especially if you proud yourself to be making good quality bread, crusty on the outside and moist on the inside, fluffy and golden brown, with the best fragrance in the whole world. For me at least, that's what a good bread is and freshly made bread always makes me think about my childhood and those days when I sit with my grandma in the kitchen and she made bread, allowing me to help. For her it was a ritual and it has to be perfect in order to have a good bread, for me it was just a game which turned into a passion later on, but also a necessity when I couldn't find a bread to satisfy my taste on the market.

Before giving you the recipes, bear in mind that making bread is not as hard as it looks and as long as you take into account a few tips, you can't go wrong. The first thing you have to know and never forget is that yeast is a living organism and it lives and expands only under certain conditions, especially temperature. When working with yeast, all your ingredients have to be warm, not hot nor cold, but warm enough, a bit higher than body temperature. If it's too hot, it will kill the yeast, if it's too cold, the yeast won't be able to feed and make the dough rise. As a baker, you learn a lot of things about this, but to sum it up in an easy to understand sentence, remember that all your ingredients, especially the liquid has to be warm enough for you to be able to hold your hand in there without burning nor having any kind of discomfort.

Depending on the type of yeast used, you will have to either mix it into the flour first or let it bloom in liquid before adding the rest of the ingredients. Many recipes use a small quantity of sugar or other sweetener as well because yeast feeds on sugars then it releases carbon dioxide and make the dough rise.

You will find in most recipes either vegetable oil or butter. Their main purpose is to make the dough richer, flavor it, but also preserve its moisture for a longer period of time. However, adding oil or butter also makes it more caloric. You can skip it, but don't be surprised to have a bread that dries out and crumbles easier.

Recipes are made to be customized and no recipe is set in stone. And if there is one thing I learnt from this quest of finding the perfect bread, that is to never be afraid of the dough. Once it's risen, you can knead it and shape it as much as you want and start all over again if something goes wrong. So go ahead and experiment with the recipes found in the book, find your own favorite and have fun making it!

I only recently began discovering the joys of baking different types of bread but I found this guide very helpful. I was surprised that I really enjoyed the olive bread even though I don’t particularly like olives (funny how taste buds work sometimes. If you don’t want to experiment too much there are recipes for some of the more usual types of bread, but there is also plenty of other new things to try.

By Earthlings - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
We tried the garlic & rosemary bread this evening and it turned out to be VERY very hard on the outside...

Basically, the recipe is your standard Biscuits recipe, tweeted a bit to call it a bread. It has more baking power than a biscuits would/should, and has warm milk in to, but it is, never the less, basically a Biscuits recipe. While tasty, it was also had an extremely HARD crust. (The dogs LOVED them!)

If that is any indication of the entire book you are likely to be as sorely disappointed as I was when we ate it.

I love fresh bread. Nothing smells better than fresh bread right from the oven. This book contains several easy to follow recipes for making tasty bread in your own home. I had fun making the Focaccia bread with my teenage daughter. We made this to compliment an Italian style meal and it went deliciously with the white sauce pasta that we made. The bread was light and flavorful. While it took a while to throw together, this was a great weekend adventure and my daughter was happy with how easy it was to make nearly on her own. I’d highly recommend trying this bread out! I can't wait to try out more recipes.

In his attractive publication titled "Global Gastronomic Adventures Presents A Real Taste of Bread Baking ( Bread Baking Recipes)", Gio Angelo dutifully precedes his recipes with a disclaimer that is friendly, informative and very helpful to users of his book. Mr Angelo's bread recipes are very detailed, yet his writing style is simple and engaging. So appealing are the names of the breads that they will tempt the reader to want them. The recipes guide the reader in the preparation of these breads. Mr Angelo's recipes are very enticing.
