I love this little book. It manages to combine a gentle and slow outlook on life with the mechanics and mystery of baking so effortlessly - makes you wonder why more cookery books are not like this one, the act of baking seems to be so intrinsic to basic needs of life. Wonderful.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best place to begin baking. 31 Jan. 2013
By Winterpast Rev - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Peter Reinhart has written a number of fine bread baking books, but this is the best. "Brother Juniper's" is not a person but a small group of bakeries in Northern California created and operated by a religious order. In this book there are good recipes and tips on baking, and commentary as well. The book is a delight to read and find inspiration to get off the couch and get some flour and yeast working together to make your home smell great. This is the book I constantly give as a gift to friends who want to start baking.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great Bread Book 12 Feb. 2015
By Ti-JLB - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have several of his books and this one I just ordered, and I am intrigued by the long slow rise method he uses. I have only read the first 4 sections of the book and it seems to be another winner for me. All of Peter's books I have read have been great learning tools. This one is no different I hope. I have been a 2 rise bread baker, now I am looking to expand to a slow 3 rise or more baker... I am excited to give this a try.

4.0 out of 5 stars this guy has a passion for bread 18 May 2011
By poin3636 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I read this book like a peice of fiction--from cover to cover. I like how excited Peter Reinhart is about bread, it got me really excited. I have not made anything out of this book except brownies (which were great), but look forward to making some breads. However, this book has no pictures, so anyone that is a visual learner should pick up his other book The Bread Baker's Apprentice: Mastering the Art of Extraordinary Bread, or, for more approachable everyday bread making, I recommend Peter Reinhart's Artisan Breads Every Day

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read, Great bread! 20 Feb. 2014
By Richard Huset - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Although we've been baking our own farm bread for 40 years, this book has opened my eyes to techniques and philosophy that will make for huge improvement. Reinhart's book had been recommended by good friends.
