Product Description

This is the first true entry-level bread-baking cookbook, from Josey Baker (that's his real name!), a former science teacher turned San Francisco baking sensation. Josey Baker Bread combines step-by-step lessons with more than 100 photographs, offering easy-to-follow guidance for aspiring bakers. Recipes start with the basic formula for making bread— requiring little more than flour, water, time, and a pan—and build in depth and detail as the user progresses to more complex loaves, including Josey's cult favorite Dark Mountain Rye. With chapters dedicated to pizza, pocketbreads, and treats, Josey's playful, encouraging tone makes for a fun read full of great advice for bakers of all levels.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Glory of Bread 17 April 2014
By Todd K - Published on
He's a super happy guy for discovering his gift of breadmaking and simply wanted to write a book that he wish he had when he started... that makes this a really accessible beginner book that gets you excited to make bread! I have a girlfriend who was obsessed over her sourdough and I thought it was just her, but now I see, that passion is a wonderful force that changes how people view food, one of the most important things in life. And by re-valueing something as basic as bread, one's entire perspective on life can change. So, if you want to change the world, the first step is making your own bread with this book as your guide. It's beautifully crafted, with an adorable bookmark, great photos, and well-written instructions. Fellow bread bakers might be interested in Traditional Breads of the World... which is just an interesting read as it is chockfull of recipes!

5.0 out of 5 stars OK, I haven't tried all the recipes but... 25 May 2014
By V RANDALL - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I started baking bread a few years ago employing the techniques of Artisan Bread in 5-Minutes. While that got me started, I remained somewhat intimidated by the whole process, especially recipes requiring sponge, sourdough starters or preferment, as Josey utilizes in his method. I approached this book with trepidation, a little overwhelmed by all the info and easy flow of options, but I have to say I was thrilled with the result. This bread has an excellent crust, flavor and crumb and slices beautifully for toast...something my previous loaves didn't. I'm much so I sent my sons to The Mill last time they were in SF in order to bring me a loaf. Sadly (for me) but happily (for Josey) he was getting married that weekend and no loaves available. Not to be deterred, they brought me a piece of cinnamon raisin (brown sugar and butter) toast. Awesome! Thanks to Josey for taking the time to write this book and to share his enthusiastic love of baking. I was intrigued by his journey and I am again inspired. I also like that he offers recipes for many types of grains, such as kamut. I haven't dealt with the metric measurements but have had no problems thus far by following the standard measuring method. I may even start a bread journal. If you buy this book, enjoy your bread making journey!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for both beginners and the serious home baker 28 April 2014
By Mike Lukich - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I'm not sure I'd call myself an experienced baker, but I'd been baking sourdough bread to various degrees of success for almost a year and I was ready to take it to the next level. In the first week of using Josey's methods, I did just that. Written in a loose, fun and unpretentious style while still taking the craft of bread making seriously, I'm sure this would be as great a lesson book for the beginning baker who might be intimidated by the sourdough method as it was and is for a semi-experienced one like myself.

I also have to say that Josey's humorous anecdotes about becoming a baker are inspiring as well, especially to the do-it-yourself home baker people.

5.0 out of 5 stars First time bread maker 28 April 2014
By JBarwick - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I read an article on the book and decided to make the purchase. Most people say "get a bread maker" but Mr. Baker tells you how to make bread with just a loaf pan and some simple ingredients. I remember my mom never getting breads to rise while using yeast but my first bread from this books recipes was AMAZING! I currently have the 2nd loaf recipe in the fridge waiting until I have some time to back that bad boy!

If you have ever wanted to try baking your own bread, do yourself a favor and order this book. I loved it and the style it was written in and will continue to use it in the future. Bravo Mr. Baker, you have a fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun, easygoing bread-making guide with new ideas 29 May 2014
By J. Elias - Published on
Just got the Josey Baker Bread book as a gift to add to my library of bread books. Sometimes a new bread book adds a new idea here or there, and this one does that times four. I can't way to try using pre-ferment the way he does, to experiment with the non-traditional grains he suggests, and make his pocket breads.
